Bill Guerin Jersey Card

Bill Guerin was a hard-nosed power forward who scored a career-high 41 goals in 2001-02 with the Boston Bruins, and led the league with 10 game-winning goals in 2003-04 with the Dallas Stars. All told, he accumulated 20-goal seasons with an NHL-record seven different teams in his distinguished career, which included a number of Team USA nods and the title of MVP of the 2001 All-Star Game.

He won two Stanley Cups as a player - 1994-95 with the New Jersey Devils and 2008-09 with the Pittsburgh Penguins - and added another as the Pens' assistant GM last year.

He was bought out by the Stars after a sub-par 2005-06 season (13 goals, 27 assists and 40 points in 70 games), but not before he got to wear the infamous "mooterus" jersey:
Oh. So. Good. That's card #J2-BG from Upper Deck's 2005-06 Series 2 set and UD Game Jersey sub-set. It features a two-colour game-worn jersey swatch (gold and white) that is likely from the Stars' white (then-home) uniform, but could also stem from his days with the Bruins or Edmonton Oilers.
