VEGAS (June 21, 2017) - The Vegas Golden Knights and MeiGray Group have entered into a multi-year partnership to have MeiGray authenticate and market the Knights' complete collection of game-worn jerseys and game-used equipment, Vegas Golden Knights President Kerry Bubolz announced today.
MeiGray has been named the "Exclusive Game-Worn Source of the Golden Knights."
"Thanks to this partnership, hockey fans will have the opportunity to acquire some incredibly unique items, including the first ever game-worn jerseys in our team's history," said Vegas Golden Knights President Kerry Bubolz. "Our jerseys - especially those in our inaugural season - will sure to be cherished memorabilia for not just Golden Knights fans, but hockey fans all around the world."
"We're thrilled to be a Golden Knights partner from Day One," said MGG President Barry Meisel. "It's unprecedented for an NHL franchise to have the foresight to authenticate its coveted game-worn jerseys before even one game-worn jersey exists. We intend to preserve the Knights' history from that first step on NHL ice. Collectors deserve it."
Every game-worn jersey worn by the Golden Knights will contain a serial-numbered, counterfeit-proof security tag inside the jersey to insure authenticity. An original VGK-MGG Program letter of authenticity will also be issued for every item authenticated. Throughout the Golden Knights' Inaugural Season, beginning with the Inaugural Game, the VGK-MGG Program will identify and archive the most historic relics of the franchise's most historic opening milestones.
The Program will also offer collectors Goal Pucks, game-used pucks, game-used sticks, game-worn equipment, practice-worn jerseys, and other game-used and game-worn items tied to the Golden Knights' premiere NHL season.
MeiGray Group of Branchburg, NJ, is celebrating its 20th year as the sports memorabilia industry's most respected game-worn jersey authenticator. MeiGray introduced the National Hockey League-MeiGray Group Game-Worn Authentication Program with the NHL in 2002. MGG also partners with eight other NHL teams, the National Basketball Association, the ECHL, and the National Women's Hockey League
