Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls welcome to another edition of the TXHT Jersey Share series. Today we have the Washington Capitals blue eagle jersey that they switched to for the 1995-96 season.
As a kid this was the first Capitals jersey I owned, though not the one pictured as the one I had a child was donated after I grew out of it. I always loved this jersey because it was so different from how all of the other jerseys looked, though the Calgary Flames and St. Louis Blues both had really unique jerseys that I liked too. However, this is one of the hardest jerseys to find along with a quality New York Islanders Fisherman jersey, and I was able to find one but sadly the word “CAPITALS” is screen printed on instead of sewn on like how my childhood one was. Overall it’s an awesome jersey and one I cherish as it was a jersey I always loved seeing it in action.
