Some times a jersey is really hard to find, and this one was until recently. Today the TXHT Jersey Share series takes a look at the 1996 West All Star Jersey.
So I’ll fight anyone and everyone on this one, but the All Star jerseys used from 1994 to 1997 were hands down the best uniforms ever worn, and I have been trying to find both the West and East jerseys. Recently I was able to find the West, but the East still eludes me. Now while these jerseys are being labelled as from 1996, that is because I plan to get this jersey customized to Wayne Gretzky for 1996 which will include the 1996 Boston All Star patch and the old Los Angeles Kings logo patch on the shoulders. Once I get the East I plan to have it customized to Peter Bondra also with the 1996 Boston All Star patch and the old Washington Capitals logo patch on the shoulders.
Also fun fact, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this jersey design is what inspired the Dallas Stars alternates, then eventual home and road uniforms, that they wore in the late 1990’s and early 200’s, and also wore when they won the Stanley Cup in 1999.
