1988-89 Wayne Gretzky Game-Worn, Signed All-Star Jersey w/Original NHL Authenticity
Out of stock
Similar to Michael Jordan and Babe Ruth, Wayne Gretzky revolutionized his sport. While the game of hockey has seen plenty of superstar players grace the ice, none has made a lasting impact like Gretzky, who is equally given the nickname “The Great One.” Possibly no athlete has even been given a more fitting nickname than the hockey icon. Beginning in 1979-80 in Edmonton, Gretzky established himself as a winner. During his stay north of the border, the Edmonton Oilers captured the Stanley Cup four times during one five year span. Gretzky is also the game’s top all-time scorer and won the MVP a record nine-times. The offered 1988-89 [size] “52” All-Star jersey was worn by The Great One during the mid-season game, at the height of his popularity. During this time period, Gretzky had moved on to Los Angeles and was creating quite a stir in the United States. The jersey shows great use for a one-game wearing with a light stain on the elbow and front. A letter directly from the NHL will accompany this one-of-a-kind shirt. The letter, which is on Official NHL letterhead, states “This letter is to officially certify that the All-Star Jersey auctioned at the SGMA Super Show in Atlanta, Georgia, is authentic and was both worn and signed by Mr. Wayne Gretzky on Feb. 7, 1989 at the 40th Annual NHL All-Star Game in Edmonton, Alberta.” According to The Spirit of the Game, our hockey authenticator, the staining on the front of the shirt “looks to be some kind of juice stain or from wiping of the face” which appears directly below the neckline. Our authenticator also said that after viewing the game, that the jersey does match up with the game jersey and is original and unaltered in every sense. All of the identifiers are brilliantly sewn directly to the jersey in heavy two-color tackle twill. Gretzky was the captain, so a large “C” was placed above the left breast. A special “The 40th NHL All-Star Game” patch appears in the right shoulder region. “GRETZKY” is sewn directly to the jersey in single-color black. The fight strap has been cut out and a black velcro strip has been placed on the inside hem. The original letter from the NHL as well as a letter from The Spirit of the Game explaining the specs of the jersey will be forwarded to the winner. Gretzky sealed up this baby with a solid “9” autograph in blue felt tip. Get a great one of a true Great One.
