It's the largest gathering of game worn jerseys in Minnesota each year and you can count on seeing some amazing and varied collections in a great hockey environment with collectors bringing favorites from their personal collections for some good old "show and tell". While there is naturally an emphasis on jerseys related to the Minnesota Wild, Minnesota North Stars and Minnesota Gophers, there are always many other interesting jerseys from throughout the hockey world and this year was no exception.
It's great opportunity to see some great game worn jerseys up close, meet some new people and perhaps add a new jersey to your collection, as there are always deals to be made plus an annual raffle of great prizes from the collections of many of those in attendance in an effort to raise money for the Minnesota NHL Alumni Association, who will receive 100% of the raffle proceeds.
Above is Scott Janvrin's impressive Ben Clymer collection. Collecting one player, such as Clymer can be a challenge when they make multiple stops in the NHL and the AHL, but that challenge increases exponentially when a player extends his career by playing in Europe, so this collection was all the more impressive with the addition of game worn jerseys from the German DEL.
