Our latest reader submitted jersey comes from Jordan MacNiven, and it's an eye catching jersey as well as a perfect example of a type of collecting some people specialize in, obtaining a player's game worn jersey from the period of time prior to his becoming an established NHLer.
Here is Jordan's story about his striking jersey:
Thanks to Jordan for taking the time to shoot the photos and send in the biography about Sharp. It's pretty special to have such an early jersey of a Stanley Cup champion and All-Star Game MVP for certain.
The ability of some collectors to track down jerseys from obscure and often far flung teams, and then have the ability to get not just a jersey, but that of a future star player no less, often leaves us scratching our heads in amazement.
This Flyers jersey is a very striking jersey, with it's bold maple leaf design in lieu of any waist stripes. Combined with the wide and bright striping on the arms, these jerseys must have looked incredible on the ice in action.
If you have a jersey in your collection that you'd like to share with us and your fellow readers, please submit your pictures and a story to go with it, no matter how brief or detailed, to firstname.lastname@example.org and we look forward to seeing your favorites.
