2006-07 John- Michael Liles Set 3 Road (MeiGray)

2006-07 John-Michael Liles Set 3 Road.. The sweater has decent wear with some heavy pilling in the rear inner hem.. I was able to photomatch the sweater to a game against Vancouver in early April, 2007. Liles was a very good defenseman and a very popular guy in the Avs' locker room. During his tenure with the Avalanche, JML established himself as the Avs’ top offensive defenseman and powerplay QB. I am very happy to have added one of his coveted sweaters to my Avalanche collection.

Some nice wear exhibited on the front of the sweater made for an easy photomatch
