Jerseys and pucks used in the game in which the Philadelphia Flyers honored one of their all-time greats are now up for auction.
MeiGray Auctions is offering 23 jerseys worn by players during Eric Lindros Night on January 18 against the Toronto Maple Leafs. His number 88 was retired by the team in a special pre-game ceremony. The orange home jerseys carry a special “88” shoulder patch.
Lindros was a six-time NHL All-Star. His career points-per-game average of 1.36 is the best in franchise history. While he had his share of spats with team management, he remains popular and is now only the sixth Flyers player in 51 years to have his number hung from the rafters.
Among the jerseys being offered are those donned by Nolan Patrick, Sean Couturier, Wayne Simmonds and Claude Giroux. A Patrick goal puck is also in the sale.
Also part of the auction are five game-used pucks—four of which resulted in goals in the 3-2 overtime win by the Flyers.
The orange jerseys were authenticated by a Flyers-MeiGray Group Game-Worn Jersey Authentication Program Director immediately after it was used. Each jersey has been security-tagged, serial-numbered, and registered into the NHL-MGG Population Report.
The auction will continue through February 15 at MeiGrayAuctions.com.
