2000 Milan Hejduk Toronto All Star jersey (acquired indirectly from Avalanche organization through a collector)

This is a Milan Hejduk 2000 Allstar game jersey that was worn in the media photo shoot at a minimum.  Not 100% entirely sure as I have heard differences of opinion on the sweater and how it was worn, but it was media shoot worn at a minimum, confirmed by good sources. Milan assisted on Pavol Demitra's 3rd period goal in the game.. The world team triumphed over North America 9-4. The Duke has also signed the sweater in black sharpie on the back.

2019-20 Erik Johnson Set 2 Home (KSE/Avalanche)

This is Erik Johnson's 2019-20 set 2 home sweater worn in home games from 12/19/19 through 3/11/20. The sweater was also worn on the Avs' road trip to California on 2/21/20 and 2/22/20 vs the Ducks and Kings. EJ registered 3 points while wearing this sweater... The sweater exhibits excellent game use with multiple team repairs, burns and marks thoughout and has been photo matched numerous times. This sweater was worn the night of the infamous COVID game vs. the NY Rangers where the league shut down after the game because of the pandemic. EJ has been a defensive stalwart and leader for the Avalanche for many seasons. I am very happy to add one the "Condors" game worn sweaters to my collection.
