Wayne Gretzky Sherwood

Wayne Gretzky 99 LA Kings stick

 

Another very rare and hard to find Wayne Gretzky Sherwood stick. Sherwood along with Easton was trying to sign Gretz to a stick contract after the contract with Titan ended during the 1989-90 season while with the LA Kings. This is one of very few that were made up for Wayne to try in games and practises.  In the picture below, you will see a picture taken at the Gretzky home in Brantford Ontario in the earl 90’s.   The grouping of sticks to the right of the photo, clearly show the exact same type of Sherwood in Walters collection. Notice no name on the shaft, just the iconic 99 as being the same as this stick shown here.  This one comes from a Kings trainers collection and is said to have been used in a game. These don’t come around at all being a very limited production and Wayne went with Easton making them one of the most well known sticks makers of the era.
