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..
