1999-00 Joe Sakic (acquired indirectly from Avalanche Organization) HHOF

Any Sakic game worn sweater would be considered a grail in the hobby.. This sweater is no exception. This is Hall of Famer Super Joe Sakic's game worn sweater from the 1999-2000 Y2K season with the Colorado Avalanche. Its size tag is 54 which is the captain's traditional sweater size during this time. The gamer shows moderate wear with some board burns, stick marks and pilling... As with many of the other gamers from this season that made it into the hobby, the sweater has been signed by Sakic on the 9 on the back of the sweater. The sweater has been photomatched below to the playoffs vs. the Phoenix Coyotes.. I am doing my research to uncover additional photomatches as there are several marks on the Avs' crest of the Sakic gamer.

Super Joe tallied at least once in this sweater in Game 3 of the Western Conference Qtr. Finals at Phoenix vs the Coyotes.  I am very excited to have added this incredible jersey to my collection.
