2009-10 Wojtek Wolski Set 2 Road (MeiGray)

This is Wojtek Wolski's set 2 road sweater from the 2009-10 season.  This game worn sweater exhibits good wear consisting of numerous stick marks, board burns and some light pilling in the hem. I was able to photo match the sweater fairly easy, to contests in December of 2009.

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.

2000-01 Alex Tanguay Set 2 Road (Avalanche Team LOA) Stanley Cup Season

This is Alex Tanguay's set 2 road sweater from the 2000-01 Avalanche championship season.  Tanguay had a memorable post season that year and is also credited with the game winning goal in game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals vs Martin Brodeur and the NJ Devils.  It is always amazing to add a Stanley Cup champion's sweater to your collection, especially an Avs' legend like Tanguay.  The sweater is my third 2000-01 SC season sweater and will go nicely with my Milan Hejduk and Chris Drury sweaters from the same championship year.

2001 NHL All Star Game patch displayed prominently on the right chest of the sweater. The game was played in Denver, CO at the Pepsi Center on 2/4/2001
