Bryan Trottier: Classic Center

Classic Auctions is back with a new hockey history memorabilia auction. The feature collection this time around?   How about 41 items from Bryan Trottier!

Bryan Trottier needs little introduction. He was hockey's ultimate warrior in the later 1970s and in the early 1980s when the New York Islanders were winning 4 consecutive Stanley Cup championships. He was the near perfect center - proficient in every aspect of the game, although he was a bit overshadowed by flashier players like Guy Lafleur, Wayne Gretzky and even teammate Mike Bossy. Later he would provide that special champions presence with the Pittsburgh Penguins when they won two championships in the early 1990s. He later went into coaching, winning a Stanley Cup as an assistant in Colorado in 2001.

Included in the auction are three special memories from each championship reign.

Other interesting items include Trottier's Hall of Fame induction ring, his Hockey Hall of Fame glass panel, and several game worn items including helmets, jerseys, gloves and sticks from various NHL stars.

As always, there are a few oddball items too, including his tie clips, some wrist watches and wine bottle opener, some of Giovanni and Guisseppe suits and some windbreakers.

The auction closes on March 29th.
