The Toledo Walleye have announced their top 5 promotions for the year, and included within those promotions are the indication of themed jerseys. You can read more about the promotions here. As usual, we expect these jerseys to be auctions off immediately following the game.
When the Detroit Red Wings hosted Lidstrom’s number retirement night, we let you know to keep an eye on the NHL Auctions page for the warm-up jerseys to appear for auction. Now they are finally listed.
Up for auction are 2 kinds of jerseys. The first set is worn by the active players during warm-ups and autographed by both the player and Lidstrom. The second set are replica jerseys made for the alumni players in attendance and is signed by both the alumni member and Lidstrom.
Each jersey has the commemorative Lidstrom banner patch sewn on, indicated the date of the event.
On March 13th, the Columbus Blue Jackets will be wearing special green warm-up jerseys with a green sharmrock patch for the pre-game warm up. After they are worn, the jerseys will be autographed and auctioned. Much like the Sharks, Columbus will be allowing remote bidding. Proceeds go towards the Blue Jackets Foundation.
To make your remote bid, there is a form to fill out and email which can be found on the Original Article on the Columbus Blue Jackets website.
On March 6th, 2014 the Detroit Red Wings will be raising a banner in to the rafters of Joe Louis Arena to commemorate the retirement of Nick Lidstrom’s jersey number. The Red Wings will be wearing a special patch for this game on their regular season jerseys which will then be removed afterward so the jerseys can be used for the rest of the year.
However, jersey collectors can still celebrate this special day because the Red Wings will be wearing special pre-game warm up jerseys. These special Lidstrom Jersey Retirement Night Warm-up jerseys will be auctioned off at a later date. We have heard that the foundation will be auctioning these jerseys off through auctions.nhl.com.
We will follow up on this story once these jerseys become available for bid.
On March 8th and March 11th, the San Jose Sharks will be hosting a silent auction for the Sharks Foundation by auctioning off St. Patrick’s Day themed practice jerseys.
