This is Gabriel Landeskog's Set 2 game worn road sweater from the 2021-22 season... It was the first set of road jerseys available to the hobby with the blue numbers and burgundy letter font on the nameplate. This is also the new Adidas Prime Green. Set 1 was kept by the players I was told. This sweater exhibits very nice game wear and I was able to match the sweater to several games but most notably at Vegas on February 17th 2022. The captain was having a great season and scored 5 times in this jersey and added 2 assists between December 19th of 2021 and February 21st of 2022. We had another unfortunate COVID pause in the league while these sweaters were being worn. I am extremely pleased to add another Captain Landeskog game worn sweater to my collection! Im hoping that this is the year that they put it all together and win the Stanley Cup! Happy collecting everyone, and as always, GO Avs GO!

This is Cale Makar’s game worn sweater from Pride Night at Ball Arena on March 5th, 2022. The Avalanche wore this special issue set for 1 night to celebrate gay equality, unity and hockey for all. The Avs hosted the Calgary Flames who were the hottest team in the league of late. This was a great, playoff style hockey game. A very physical, tight checking game that was contested. The game went into overtime where Johnny Gaudreau scored on a semi breakaway on Pavel Francouz to end it 4-3. Makar wore this game worn sweater for 25 minutes that night with a beautiful assist on a goal by Nathan MacKinnon.. The jersey displays very light board burns and some creasing in the rear 8 as it seems to always tuck in behind Makar’s breezers. Wear over is light, typical of a sweater worn for 1 game. I am extremely happy that I have added a game worn jersey of a generational talent like Cale Makar. He will undoubtedly be adding Norris Trophy’s and Stanley Cups to his already impressive resume. Makar is one special player.

This is Claude Lemieux's Set 3 Home sweater from the 1997-98 season. I am extremely excited to add a Lemieux sweater to my Avalanche collection.. Claude Lemieux was just simply clutch, especially in the playoffs for the Montreal Canadiens, NJ Devils and Colorado Avalanche. I loathed him as a Hab and Devil as he was a big NY Rangers killer, but when I moved to Colorado in 1998 and started following the Avalanche, I instantly became a big fan. Absolutely loved this player. 4 time Stanley Cup champion and over 80 Stanley Cup playoff goals, he was a guy you'd love to hate if he wasn't playing for your club. The sweater exhibits excellent wear throughout and has been photo matched numerous times. Very excited to add a "Pepe" Le Pew 22 to my Avalanche collection... And as always,, Go Avs Go!
