The jersey is from the third team set, which was worn late in the season and through the playoffs. It shows nice overall wear. The set tag is located in the rear hem, and is tagged set "III-1". There is no size tag in the collar, but the jersey looks to be around a 56-58. Because Hahl came up late in the year, he only wore one set of jerseys. The jersey shows good overall game use. The sleeves show some very good wear, with numerous marks and several holes. The jersey also displays a variety of black stick marks. There is a very nice white mark on the shoulder. The inside of the jersey shows some moderate to heavy pilling in the arm and underarm areas. The jersey is accompanied by the Avalanche LOA and Meigray documents.
