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.
