Description from Classic Auctions: A rare opportunity, Classic Auctions is pleased to announce yet another partnership with the historic Montreal Canadiens franchise, one that will bring to auction a large and impressive bounty of jerseys fresh from the vast and seldom offered holdings of the storied hockey club. Examples are present from 2003-04 to 2014-15, with both important game-issued and game-worn jerseys offered, with a direct line from the actual player and the Canadiens franchise – to you, our loyal bidders. Each desirable jersey has inventory numbers from the Canadiens, with each to be accompanied by a letter of authenticity on Canadiens letterhead.
A veteran of eleven NHL seasons, Carey Price has made six All-Star Game appearances, with the Ted Lindsay, Jennings, Vezina and Hart trophies all won by the Vancouver native in 2015. We have a photo-matched Canadiens jersey that was worn by Price in 2008-09. “Goalie Style” labeling with a "58" size tag appear along the collar with handwritten “1”, with embroidered NHL and Reebok crests on the front and back necklines respectively. Styled with the famous and sacred CH team crest, the white V-neck has been accented with tri-colour tackle twill sleeve and verso numbers, with the Canadiens 100 Seasons crest over the right shoulder and All-Star Game crest over the left. The team patch numbered “A02978” sits on the inside hem, while a hologram affixed to the reverse number “1” matches the accompanying LOA from the Canadiens.
A number of puck marks are visible including over the team crest, with paint transfer over the lower right sleeve. There is also some pilling just beneath the team crest. Regarding the aforementioned photo-matches, Getty Image #83270965 from Oct 10th 2008 has been matched to the linear black mark below the "31" over the right sleeve, while Getty Image #83301115 from Oct 13th has been matched to the slightly circular black mark over front left of the jersey just below the shoulder. Lastly, Getty Image #83537437 from Nov 1st and Getty Image #83614830 from Nov 8th have both been matched to the three marks below the "31" over the right sleeve.
