1991-92 Wayne Gretzky Game-Used Kings Jersey (w/Family Letter)
Out of stock
When pursuing the best in game-used jerseys, the collector expects provenance, style and convincing game use. This jersey has them all – uncommon for Wayne Gretzky jerseys, especially from his days with the Kings. The provenance traces directly to the “Great One”; the style is a 1991-92, two-patch road; and it shows impeccable, even, NHL game use.
During the season which the offered jersey was used, Wayne occasionaly directed that one of his children’s names be stitched into the hem. In this particular instance, his daughter’s name, Paulina, appears there (in pink, of course) on a section of tackle twill which was then sewn into the hem. Attached on the inside is a Velcro patch intended to secure the jersey in the high-energy of competition. Missing is the fight strap, which Gretzky customarily removed that season. This jersey has one team repair on the sleeve (which was effected in the typical tackle-twill backing seen on many of the Kings’ jerseys from that era). Pete Millar, the team trainer, also wrote on the back of the CCM tag on the hem “91 92 1” identifying the season (1991-92) and “set one.”
Great use is demonstrated on the shirt with light pilling toward the cuff on the right sleeve and a repair below the #9 on the sleeve, as well as light burns. Stick marks appear on the left sleeve, front and verso. Other evidence of game service is provided by staining (“perspiration”, we call it) on the verso near the top of the second “9.”
Providing our authentication on this treasure is Rich Ellis and, in part, his summary analysis of the jersey states “This is the best Wayne Gretzky Los Angeles Kings game worn jersey I have ever seen…with direct provenance and outstanding overall wear.” His LOA, along with a family letter (provided by Gary Jones who is Wayne Gretzky’s brother-in-law) attend this exceptional jersey.
