CCM/KOHO Airknit. Set 1. Neck tagging 58.
Stanley Cup Winning Season
The jersey is from the first team set, and contains the Avalanche set tag in the rear hem. The jersey shows lighter overall game wear, but does show some nice nicks in the left sleeve consisting of one very deep burn with a few light burns surrounding, and about a three-inch slice near the cuff. The neck and collar area show some stretching, presumably from fighting. The left shoulder seam is also torn open right on the seam, and again appears to be pulled apart from fighting. There are a few faint marks throughout, as well as some general spots of light filth. The All-Star patch is sewn to the right chest. The jersey is accompanied by the Avalanche LOA, which has the Hattricks stamp at the top.
