Up for bids on ebay right now are a pair of 1996 Czech Republic Jaromir Jagr jerseys as he wore in the 1996 World Cup of Hockey, the first time this style of jersey would have been worn. These jerseys are the highly attractive "Waving Flag" style, a rare home white and a traditional road red style.
Both jerseys are the correct Bauer brand for the World Cup of Hockey, as worn by only Canada, Sweden and the Czechs, while everyone else wore Nike in the tournament.
They are both size mediums, but do run a bit larger than the CCM and Starter jerseys of that era, measuring 23" across as measured through the bottom portion of the body (the jerseys do narrow a bit as they get closer to the armpits). The white one measures 32" long from the collar to the hem while the red one is 31" long.
In addition to the two Czech Republic Jagr jerseys, we are also offering a striking black 1996 Germany National Team Jochen Hecht jersey as he would have worn in the 1996 World Cup of Hockey, again, the first time this style of jersey would have been worn.
Each jersey has been expertly customized by Exclusive Pro Sports to our exact instructions based on our detailed research with the numbers all being two layers of sewn on twill, while the names are single color twill on a nameplate made of jersey material, not twill as is often incorrectly used for nameplates by other customizers.
All three auctions conclude next Monday evening and if you are the winner of more than one jersey, we will certainly combine the shipping to save you some money.
