    2005-06 Sidney Crosby Game Worn Pittsburgh Penguins Rookie Jersey. Matched in pre-NHL debut hype only by Bobby Orr and Wayne Gretzky, Sidney Crosby was such a clear first choice for the 2005 NHL draft that the lottery to determine the team picking order was widely called "The Sidney Crosby Sweepstakes." Much to the joy of Penguins fans, Pittsburgh emerged with the coveted first draft spot, bringing Crosby onto the ice with the legendary veteran Mario Lemieux for what would prove to be the latter's final twenty-six games of his career. And the torch was passed.

    Presented is a home sweater worn during the most anticipated rookie season in three decades. The jersey sports a large logo patch at the chest, and the alternate captain's letter "A" just below the left shoulder. Number "87" appears at each bicep and on verso, where it is placed beneath a boldly lettered "Crosby" on the rear nameplate. "Cutting Edge Sports" maker's label appears at interior rear hem, noting the Penguins exclusivity and "Set #1 2005-2006." Fight strap remains affixed just above. Light wear is exhibited throughout, while a black stick mark is on the back No. 7.

    Crosby's rookie campaign would end with sixty-three assists and 102 points, each new records for a Penguins debut season topping tallies registered by Lemieux. This proved to be only a small taste of what was yet to come, as Crosby would hoist the 2009 Stanley Cup as team captain, and soon after earn a Gold Medal for Canada with his sudden-death goal against the United States. Already well on his way to hockey immortality with just half of his career in the books, Crosby serves as one of the safest bets in the sports collecting hobby for investors looking for a piece with potential to appreciate in value. Should Crosby's brilliance continue for fifteen seasons, the owner of this one will look back upon the purchase as a tactic of pure genius. LOA from Pittsburgh Penguins. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
