On February 18, 2011 the Flyers participated in Rod Brind’Amour Number Retirement Night in Carolina. When the Hurricanes honored their former captain, a proud Flyer for nine seasons, by retiring his number before the game in front of 18,726 fans at RBC Center in Raleigh, N.C, the Flyers also honored him by wearing a special set of #17 jerseys in the pre-game warmup.
Now you can own one of these historic Retirement Night jerseys, autographed both by Brind’Amour and the Flyer who wore it in pre-game warmup.
The Philadelphia Flyers-MeiGray Group Game-Worn Jersey Authentication Program is proud to offer for immediate bid at NHL Auctions a set of 20 jerseys from Brind’Amour Retirement Night. The auction ends on Thursday, March 24, beginning at 11 pm ET. Each auction includes the five-minute rule. Any jersey that gets a bid after that jersey’s initial auction close extends that individual auction for five minutes, until there is no new new bid for five minutes.

Twenty Flyers participated in the pre-game warmup. Flyers captain Mike Richards, who did not play in the game, wore his Brind’Amour jersey during the warmup and pre-game retirement ceremony. He presented Brind’Amour with a gift from the Flyers while wearing his Brind’Amour jersey.
Each Flyer signed the jersey he wore. Brind’Amour signed each of those 20 jerseys, and two other Brind’Amour Retirement Night prepared Flyers jerseys that were not worn by any Flyer.
Each jersey was authenticated by a Flyers-MGG Game-Worn Jersey Authentication Program director at RBC Center immediately after it was used. Each jersey has been security-tagged, serial-numbered, and registered into the NHL-MGG Population Report.
