This is Alex Newhook's 2021-22 opening night set home sweater... Worn for 1 game at Ball Arena vs the Chicago Blackhawks on October 13th 2021. The sweater is super nice even with it being 99.9% pristine. The sweater exhibits a very minute mark on the arm most likely caused by a puck or stick. Newhook logged a bit over 10 minutes of ice time opening night vs Chicago in the Avs' 4-2 win at Ball Arena. The sweater is one of Adidas' new Prime Green sustainability sweaters. The Avs' crest is raised a bit which looks super nice in my opinion. Super happy to add a rookie jersey of the Avs' top prospect in Newhook... And as always, GO AVS GO!

This is Nazem Kadri's Alternate 3rd Set 2 game worn sweater from the 2019-20 season. Kadri wore this sweater in three games, early in January of 2012. He scored in this jersey on January 18th vs St Louis Blues at the Pepsi Center. The jersey displays decent game use and has been photo matched several times. This sweater is the second Kadri that I have added to my collection.. He is a very important piece to the Avs' chances of winning their 1st Stanley up since 2001.

Wolski was a very good Avs' player during his time in Colorado. In 2009-10 he had the best season of his career scoring 23 goals and 42 assists for 65 points, helping the Avs qualify for the playoffs that season.

This is JS Giguere's Forsberg Retirement Night warmup worn sweater worn in warmups the night of October 8th 2011 at the Pepsi Center in Denver Colorado. What a memorable night as I was in attendance for this game to watch Peter Forsberg's #21 get raised to the rafters. Giggy wore this beautiful 58G goalie cut sweater in warmups that night. The Avalanche hosted the rival Detroit Redwings this night, dropping the game 3-0. It was also the future captain of the Avalanche Gabriel Landeskog's rookie debut.
Forsberg and Giguere nameplates and both signatures are present on the back of the warmup sweater. Typically the way the Avs' have always customized retirement night sweaters of their greatest players

This is Wade Belak's game worn home sweater from the 1997-98 regular season. Belak played only 8 games this season with 1 goal and 1 assist for 2 points both coming in the same home game against Washington. Belak accumulated 27 penalty penalty minutes in the eight games made up of mostly fighting majors. The wear on the sweater is very light but staining from blood does exist. Belak played with 5 different teams throughout his career, and was a beloved teammate and great enforcer in the league.. His life ended in tragedy in 2011 as he suffered from depression.. He committed suicide in a Toronto hotel room by hanging himself.. Belak will never be forgotten by his teammates, the league and fans.
