While I was a fan of Cujo’s before the 1993 playoffs, this season would be the most memorable for St. Louis Blues fans of that 1990’s era.  The Blues clinched a playoff birth on the last day of the regular season.  Most folks didn’t see the Blues making much of a splash in the playoffs.

In the Norris Division Semifinal, Cujo was the key player in leading a huge upset of the first place Chicago Blackhawks.  The Blues swept them in 4 games.  In game 2 at Chicago Stadium, Cujo earned his first career playoff shutout while wearing this sweater. He would end his career with 16, third all-time.

The Blues would face the Toronto Maple Leafs in the Norris Division Finals. This jersey is video-matched games 1, 2, and 7; played at Maple Leaf Gardens. Game 1, Doug Gilmour scored that historic (and heart-breaking to Blues fans) double-overtime winner.  In the decisive Game 7, the Leafs over-powered the Blues.  Wendel Clark fired a slapshot that knocked the mask off Cujo’s head.  This would be the last appearance of that Greg Harrison “Trumpet” mask.

This jersey represents my definitive “Holy Grail” of jerseys.  When I first discovered that people could own game worn jerseys, I thought to myself, “I wish I could get his blue jersey from the 1993 playoffs.”  If I could choose one of any of his sweaters to have, it’s this one.  Easily, a Hall of Fame worthy piece of hockey history.

A special thanks to Greg and Mike, both of whom are good friends who enabled me to acquire this.
