NOTE: This description has been modified from the printed catalog to reflect that this is a signed sweater, but practice use can not be confirmed.
While there is room for debate regarding the greatest-ever players in baseball, football and basketball, very few will cite anyone but Wayne Gretzky as the all-time greatest hockey player. This sweater was signed by “The Great One” during his tenure at Madison Square Garden. The white mesh size “46” pullover garment features tackle twill identifiers that include “RANGERS” angled down the front, the since-retired (league-wide) number “99” on the back and sleeves and “GRETZKY” arched atop the back number. On the left breast, Gretzky has signed in black marker (“8-9” strength) and added a personalization, a “Your Friend” salutation and an inscription of “99.” Moderate wear is evident and the interior fight strap remains intact.
