2007-08 Fedor Tyutin Hall of Fame Game (MeiGray)

This is Fedor Tyutin's game worn NY Rangers sweater from the Hall of Fame game played on November 10th, 2007 against the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.. It was Hall of Fame induction weekend in Toronto as Mark Messier was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame.  The Rangers beat the Maple Leafs 3-2 in a shootout with Marcel Hossa scoring the game winner.  The Tyutin sweater has very light use, with just a light board burn on the cuff and some minor pilling. This is expected as it was only worn for one game. It has the fabulous 2007 Hall of Fame Induction patch on the shoulder and is the rare Reebok Edge 1.0 with custom hem done by the team.  
The famous NY Rangers custom hem done by the team to give the new Reebok Edge 1.0 sweater a cleaner look. 
 The 2007 Hall of Fame Induction patch, the highlight of this sweater.
 Here is a photo of Tyutin wearing this sweater as he finishes his check of Jason Blake of the Toronto Maple Leafs Toronto on 11/10/2007.

This is Michael Del Zotto Set 1, 2010-11 85th Anniversary Heritage jersey.  This is a very special jersey commemorating the NY Rangers 85th anniversary with the retired numbers of NY Rangers greats from the past.  This original set of NY Rangers heritage sweaters are becoming very hard to obtain as they have disappeared into collections. 


Here is a photo of Del Zotto wearing this sweater on the night the NY Rangers unveiled their Heritage sweaters on November 17th, 2010 at Madison Square Garden vs. the Boston Bruins.

The goal was scored at 17:11 of the 1st period and was assisted by Vinny Prospal and Eric Christensen. It was Gaborik's 281st goal of his career.  The Rangers beat the Canadiens 6-3.  Carey Price was pulled in the game after yielding 5 goals and was replaced by Alex Auld in net.  This is a special puck as I attended this game with my brother and cousin.

2013 Chris Kreider NY Rangers Set 2 Home (Rookie) Steiner

This Chris Kreider's 2013 game worn rookie road sweater (set 2) from the strike shortened 2013 season.. This sweater shows decent game use and was video matched to the shootout against the Ottawa Senators on February 21st, 2013.  Probably the most special thing about the sweater that Kreider was wearing this sweater when he scored his 1st goal (regular season) of his career..




 Here is Chris Kreider wearing this sweater in the February 21st, 2013 game vs the Ottawa Senators.

2012 John Mitchell NHL Winter Classic Period 1 (MeiGray)

This is John Mitchell's New York Rangers 2012 NHL Winter Classic game worn sweater. Mitchell wore this jersey throughout the 1st period on January 2nd, 2012 at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. The 5th annual NHL Winter Classic was played in front of 46,967 fans that saw the Rangers take a 3-2 win in a thriller. The sweater displays very light use with a few light stick marks on sleeves. The Winter Classic jerseys have been very difficult to obtain as they have disappeared into collections. This sweater is one of my favorites and will stay in my collection for many years to enjoy..


The beautiful 2012 NHL Winter Classic patch adorns the right shoulder of the sweater
Here are a couple of photos of Mitchell wearing this jersey from period 1 of the game..

2012-13 Ryan McDonagh Set 1 Road (Steiner)

This is Ryan McDonagh's 2012-13 opening week road NY Rangers sweater. I usually never collect sweaters that do not have several games worth of use but I saw the stick marks on the sleeve after opening night in Boston on 1/19/2013 and knew I had a coveted photo match. McDonagh also wore the sweater a few days later in Philadelphia.  He didnt get on the scoreboard in either game but logged 49:55 in total ice time in both games.



It seems that McDonagh does not appreciate the pointy and sharp NHL logo in the neck and shaves it similar to former teammate Brandon Dubinsky.

Here are two photos of McDonagh wearing the sweater against Boston on 1/19/2013 and Philadelphia on 1/29/13
