This red jersey was worn by Darren McCarty during the 2008-09 preseason for the Detroit Red Wings.
The jersey has a large hole in the elbow, a mark on the stripe of the arm and melting at the sleeve. It has been photo matched to September 28th, 2008 to the hole in the elbow.
The jersey has been signed by McCarty and inscribed several times.
The name on the back was removed by Hockeytown Authentics to be supplied to Upper Deck in order to be cut into cards. The jersey was then sold by Hockeytown Authentics without an LOA. You can see the original serial number they screened in the hem from the outside of the jersey that they covered up with the set tag on the inside.
