Collection of 20 Team USA 1991 Canada Cup Game Worn Jerseys
Tremendous collection of 20 Team USA game worn jerseys from the '91 Canada Cup, a signal moment for the U.S. skaters who vaulted over the Russians and Czechs and into the world elite by earning the silver medal in the competition, the final Canada Cup, and greasing the way for Team USA's triumphant gold medal in the '96 World Cup of Hockey when they turned the tables on Team Canada. Many of the men who wore these jerseys were instrumental in the 7-3 victory over Finland in the semi-finals and -- as can be seen in the battle scars on several of the shirts -- played their hearts and guts out in the 4-1 and 4-2 defeats to Wayne Gretzky's Canada squad in the championship round games on September 14th and 16th. Included among the jerseys is that of Craig Janney, Team USA's 3rd-leading scorer behind Brett Hull and Mike Modano with 4 goals and 2 assists. Other jerseys were worn by D. Brown, G. Brown, Wolanin, Bourque, Sutter, Weinrich, Jablonski, Miller, Delguidice, Wood, Mantha, Norton, Stanton, Ranheim, Otto, Hatcher, Cole, Snuggerud, Dineen. Jerseys are blue with red, white and blue patch across the chest and red, white and blue stripes horizontally across the lower middle. White running vertically from neck and shoulders down the sleeves with player numbers on both sleeves in red, white and blue. Player name and number on the back in white (number bordered by blue and red) and Labatt Canada Cup patch is on the right shoulder area. Interior neck tagging is by Maska with the individual size flag tags. Most jerseys show good use, some extensive, a few terrifying. Most damage is on the sleeves, not surprising given the hand to hand combat in the corners. Most heavily battered are Wood's, which is streaked blue and red (blood?) and with various scuffs and slash marks on the back numbers and sleeves, and Miller's, which show tremendous wear on the sleeves. It's amazing some of these guys -- and their jerseys -- came out of that series in one piece. Great keepers from a most satisfying and important period in U.S. hockey history.
