This year’s Stanley Cup runners-up are clearing out the storeroom.
On the day when one of their all-time greats was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame, the Detroit Red Wings announced plans for their annual Game-Worn Jersey Sale.
While no Steve Yzerman gamers are expected to be offered, there will be plenty of other material available to collectors. The event will take place Hockeytown Authentics in Troy, Michigan, this Saturday, June 27, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. EDT.
Items available for purchase include game-worn jerseys from the 2008-09 Western Conference championship season, discounted game-worn jerseys from previous seasons, Winter Classic practice jerseys, and a limited amount of hockey sticks, gloves, skates, pants and goalie equipment. Discounted merchandise from the 2009 Stanley Cup playoffs will be available along with Detroit Tigers baseball bats, jerseys and helmets.
Fans will be admitted to the Game-Worn Jersey Sale on a first come, first serve basis. Anyone who puts down a deposit right now on a 2009-10 Red Wings’ season ticket plan will receive a special invitation to attend the Season Ticket Holder Game-Worn Jersey Sale on Friday, June 26 from 8-10 p.m. at Hockeytown Authentics.
Interested parties unable to attend the Game-Worn Jersey Sale will have the opportunity to purchase any leftover items beginning Wednesday, July 1.
