NHL Winter Classic Memorabilia

2008 marked the very first outdoor NHL Winter Classic game, excitedly for us, in Buffalo NY. Our beloved Sabres took on the Pittsburgh Penguins on New Year’s Day in front of 71,217 screaming, freezing fans (which broke the NHL’s record for most fans ever in attendance, by the way).

The outdoor game was so wildly successful that the NHL decided to make it a yearly event, so in 2009 the Chicago Blackhawks hosted the Detroit Red Wings at Wrigley Field. This game may not have broken Buffalo’s attendance record but it had the highest TV ratings of any hockey game ever played in 33 years. Not bad.

In celebration of a rad new tradition, we’ve got fantastic prints from both of these games; the 2008 NHL Winter Classic in Buffalo, NY and the 2009 NHL Winter Classic in Chicago, IL.

Here’s a snapshot of the print featuring the 2008 game in Buffalo:

Maybe it’s just because I hail from Buffalo but I get a warm, fuzzy feeling seeing so many fans piled in our stadium to watch our boys. I can’t wait to order one for myself!

Here’s a shot of the 2009 Chicago game print:

The city looks pretty rad behind the game. I may be partial to Buffalo but but of these prints have a lot to offer.

Cheers!
