The highlight of my Gaborik collection!
I used to have a Gaborik home game-used jersey from 2006-07 that I got from an NHL alumni auction. It was nice, but was only worn for a handful of games. I got rid of it about 5 years ago in a blockbuster deal with a friend.
Well, the Minnesota Wild had a big game-used sale this past weekend. They do not sell to MeiGray and only sell at their arena. So it is the only place to get any Wild gear. Plus, they hold back a lot of stuff for years. Well, this time they went all out selling game-used items. So I figured it was time to check for a Gaborik gamer, which usually are only offered for charity events. They did pull out some older jerseys of his...they actually had 5 different ones from different years. No real discounts, so I bit the bullet. I picked this one for a variety of reasons.
First....it had the Wild 5th Year Anniversary patch.
Second.....had an Alternate Captain "A" patch.
Third....lots of game use wear!
My new prized Gaborik gamer:
A 2005-06 Set 3 White Wild away jersey (February-April 2006...he had the "A" for the last month, as the Wild rotated Captains and Alternates back then) - front:
Tag inside hem:
Left sleeve repairs:
Stick/puck marks and hole by chest emblem:
Huge stick mark on left front:
Getty shot of him wearing the jersey. I haven't found a definite photomatch of this (stick mark on front would be huge giveaway, but what game did it happen in?):
Time for a card sale to help pay for this beast!!

That's just nuts, Curt! I can only dream of coming up with the $2000 the Canucks want for my guy. Congrats man, it's a beautiful PC piece :)

That is a sweet addition, Curt. Your Gaborik collection is disgusting, yet you still find new ways to beef it up. :)** If I can archive a thread of yours that you no longer need, just let me know, I would be happy to help. **
