    1994 Wayne Gretzky European Exhibition Tour Game Worn and Signed Jersey. In an attempt to jar the powers that be at the league offices, Wayne Gretzky organized a six-game tour of Finland, Sweden, and Norway during the 1994 NHL lockout. Officially earmarked as a tour of goodwill and charity, "Wayne Gretzky & Friends" included several high-profile stars such as Mark Messier, Brett Hull, Sergei Federov, and Steve Yzerman. A classy design of the utmost eccentricity, the red and white striped sweater presented here is the on-ice garment for the Great One for that '94 tour. Script wording spelling Gretzky's famous jersey number is embroidered across the chest, which also is home to an NHLPA logo at right breast and a 4" white-red-white three-color tackle twill captain's "C" at left breast. Red twill stars complete the design of the jersey front as two flank the neck and four more form a horizontal line near the waistline. The player's surname "GRETZKY" is affixed to a red name plate on the jersey's verso along with white-red-white "99". A pair of CCM logos have been stitched into the rear tail, which also carries the customization of a velcro swatch on the inside right. The fight strap has been appropriately removed. As can be expected from an exhibition jersey, only light signs of wear can be discerned, however the white portions have picked up a bit of staining, especially near the waist on the reverse. A photograph is included depicting Gretzky himself presenting the jersey and the stained area can be accurately photo matched. A 10/10 Gretzky signature and "Tour 94" inscription has been added to the eastern "9" on the verso. We can't imagine a more attractive and unique exemplar from the Great One than this slick gamer. LOA from Rich Ellis. LOA from PSA/DNA (autograph). LOA from James Spence Authentication (autograph).
