The Vegas Golden Knights and MeiGray Group have entered into a multi-year partnership to have MeiGray authenticate and market the Knights’ game-worn jerseys and game-used equipment.
MeiGray has been named the “Exclusive Game-Worn Source of the Golden Knights,” the league’s new expansion team set to begin play next fall.
Goal pucks, other game-used pucks, game-used sticks, game-worn equipment, practice-worn jerseys, and other game-used and game-worn items tied to the Golden Knights’ premiere NHL season are also part of the deal.
“We’re thrilled to be a Golden Knights partner from Day One,” said MGG President Barry Meisel. “It’s unprecedented for an NHL franchise to have the foresight to authenticate its coveted game-worn jerseys before even one game-worn jersey exists. We intend to preserve the Knights’ history from that first step on NHL ice. Collectors deserve it.”
Every game-worn jersey worn by the Golden Knights will contain a counterfeit-proof serial-numbered security tag inside the jersey. An original VGK-MGG Program letter of authenticity will also be issued for every item authenticated. Adidas will manufacture the “Adizero” jerseys, a new style of gamers all 32 teams will wear beginning next season.
“Thanks to this partnership, hockey fans will have the opportunity to acquire some incredibly unique items, including the first ever game-worn jerseys in our team’s history,” said Vegas Golden Knights President Kerry Bubolz. “Our jerseys – especially those in our inaugural season – will sure to be cherished memorabilia for not just Golden Knights fans, but hockey fans all around the world.”
MeiGray introduced the National Hockey League-MeiGray Group Game-Worn Authentication Program with the NHL in 2002. The company already partners with eight other NHL teams, the National Basketball Association, the ECHL, and the National Women’s Hockey League
As with other MeiGray programs, collectors and fans can actually pre-order game-used and game-worn items ahead of time. For more information, or to get on the pre-order request list, email [email protected].
