The jerseys worn during the pivotal game six of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals are being sold by the victorious Boston Bruins. The 5-2 Boston victory is widely regarded as the most important in the last 39 years for the Boston franchise, propelling the franchise to a game 7 road win and their first Stanley Cup win since 1972.
The Bruins-MeiGray Group Game-Worn Jersey Authentication Program announced Thursday that the Stanley Cup Final Game 6 Game-Worn Jersey Auction was underway at Auctions.NHL.com. Bidding on several jerseys has already topped $1,000 including those donned by goalie Tim Thomas and veteran Mark Recchi. The auction ends Wednesday, January 11.
The Bruins wore two sets of white and two sets of black jerseys in the 2011 Stanley Cup Final.
Boston-MGG already offered to collectors last spring the one set of white and one set of black jerseys worn in Games 1 through 5 of the Bruins’ seven-game triumph over the Vancouver Canucks. The Bruins awarded to their triumphant players the historic set of white jerseys worn in Game 7 at Vancouver, when the Bruins won the cup with a 4-0 victory.
Now the Bruins have elected to offer to the highest bidder each of the jerseys worn on Monday, June 13, 2011, when they defeated the Vancouver Canucks at TD Garden.
Twenty game-worn jerseys and nine game-issued jerseys of Bruins who were not in the lineup for Game 7 are available.
The five-minute rule applies for each auction, meaning that each auction will stay active until there are no bids for five consecutive minutes after the initial ending time.
