1996-97 Kevin Dineen Whalers jersey dates from the franchise's final season in Hartford and is everything you want to see on a game worn jersey. Top is navy blue - a change from the former green base worn until the team's final five seasons - with Starter tag in neck with 52 - R and handwritten number 11; under the tail is stamped, "Official Hartford Whalers 1st Set 1996-97 Season." Whale-tail crest is across the chest in green-and-blue on gray-and white, captains "C" is on left breast, and number 11 is on sleeves and back in white-on-blue/green. Name in all white letters is on a plate above the rear number. Exceptional, heavy use is evident with in excess of 50 slash marks, over a dozen holes on sleeves, multiple team repairs, paint transfers, abrasions, and pilling around the neck. Photo-matched to two games and 1997 card: 1/31/97 (Getty 279967), 12/16/96 - Assist game (Getty 53130071 - dated 12/19 but Rangers played Whalers 12/16), 1997-98 Collector's Choice #109 card; sources from former employee. Dineen is second on the list of Whalers all-time goal scorers with 235, behind only Hall of Famer Ron Francis with 264, though Francis played in 127 more games.
