On April 18, 1999 during a game at MSG against the visiting Penguins, Wayne Gretzky fed teammate Brian Leetch for what would be his last point in the National Hockey League. The crowd on hand for the game was witness to hockey history as the career of the greatest player ever to lace up skates came to a close. This jersey was worn by Rangers’ star defenseman and team captain Brain Leetch as he scored that momentous goal. Blue mesh uniform by Starter, tagged in the neck with a size 56R tag below and a pair of team set tags in the tail (1998-99 Set 2). Nice wear for a recent jersey, especially in the elbows. Comes with an extensive package of documentation, including a letter from the Rangers signed by GM Neil Smith, in which he confirms that this exact shirt was in fact worn during the second half of the regular season, and reads, in part: “Leetch wore this jersey on April 18, 1999… scored the goal that resulted in Gretzky’s final NHL assist and point”.
