The gloves worn by Alex Ovechkin during his 1,000th NHL game are on the auction block.
The CCM Pro Gloves date to a game on April 1 of last year when Ovechkin became the first member of the Washington Capitals to reach the milestone. They’re being offered as part of a collection of Caps’ memorabilia up for bid right now.
Ovechkin wore the photo-matched gloves in the Caps’ 3-1 win in Pittsburgh, becoming only the 54th player in NHL history to play 1,000 games with a single franchise. He also became one of only four NHL players in history to score 600 or more goals prior to reaching 1,000 games played. He’s the first player from the 2004 NHL Draft class to reach the mark.
“GR8” has been stitched on the side of each glove and the number ’18’ has been handwritten on each palm.
The Size 14 gloves are registered into the MeiGray Group Game-Worn Jersey Authentication Program.
The minimum bid is $2,500.
Also in the auction are several Capitals helmets worn during the 2018 Stanley Cup Final.
The auction runs through February 6 at MeiGrayAuctions.com.
