This is Oscar Lindberg's set 2 road sweater from his rookie season.. The jersey shows decent game use with board burns, stick marks and a small team repair..

2008-09 Michal Rozsival Prague Premier (MeiGray)

This is Michal Roszival's Prague Premier Opening Night game worn sweater worn in the 1st period on October 4th, 2008 vs Tampa Bay Lightning.  The Rangers and Lightning opened the 2008-09 season playing each other 2 times in Prague, Czech Republic.  The Rangers won the game 2-1 with Brandon Dubinsky scoring the game winning goal in the 3rd period on the power play.  The Rangers won the opening series in Prague by winning both games.

2006-07 Matt Cullen Liberty (MeiGray)

This is Matt Cullen's Liberty game worn jersey from the Garth Brooks/NHL Teammates for Kids Night at MSG from January 7th, 2007.  The jersey is fairly pristine with very minor pilling.  The jersey was customized with a nameplate which wasn't done by the Rangers until a couple of years later, making me wonder if someone other than the Rangers letter these sweaters that were worn throughout the NHL that night.  The numbers are not layered but kiss cut which is very nice.  The Liberty sweaters have always been a favorite of mine and this is a beautiful gamer representing how nice these sweaters really are.. The Rangers defeated the Flyers at MSG that night by the score of 3-2.  Cullen didn't register any points that night but spent 2 minutes in the penalty box.

2014-15 JT Miller Heritage Set 1 (Steiner)

This is JT Miller's 2014-15 Heritage sweater.  The team only issues one set of Heritage sweaters per year now.  This Miller sweater exhibits good game use with board burns and stick marks throughout.. I was able to photo match this jersey to some loose whiskers on the front of the sweater on the diagonal New York.  I really enjoy the Heritage sweaters as they have the retired numbers of the NY Rangers greats displayed in the rear hem.  Miller scored what was likely his best goal of the year in this sweater with an amazing wraparound goal against the Philadelphia Flyers on 11/29/14.  JT had a good sophomore season scoring 10 goals and 13 assists in 58 games.

2012-13 JT Miller Road (Rookie Season) Steiner

This is one of JT Miller's "rookie" season road sweaters from the strike shortened 2012-13 season.  The sweater displays very light use with a couple of stick marks and unprepared hole on the wrist.  Miller was called up from the Connecticut Whale in February 2013 and played in 26 games, scoring 2 goals and 2 assists.  This rookie sweater is coveted by Miller fans as only a few home and road sweaters with Miller's original number 47 were customized by the team.
