Gear up for this year's Hockey Night at the ballpark! The Bisons are putting a select number of Hockey Night jerseys up for auction right now (through Wednesday, August 14). Get your bids in now as proceeds will benefit the Buffalo Bisons Charitable Foundation and the Buffalo Sabres Foundation.
The jerseys of Bisons players/coaches will be game-worn and autographed on Friday, August 16. Special thanks to the Buffalo Sabres and Jeff Skinner and Rasmus Dahlin for also autographing a Bisons' Hockey Night Jersey for this auction!
The Jerseys are Good... SCARY GOOD!
The Bisons' royal blue 'Hockey Night Jersey' features three gold stripes across the bottom and on the sleeves, much like the Sabres jerseys from the 1970s and 1980s. Below the gold neckline are three sweater laces printed underneath in the style of a vintage 'hockey sweater.' The Bisons' classic 'standing buffalo' crest logo is centered on the chest of the jersey, but also in the Sabres' blue and gold color scheme.
The numbers printed on the back are gold and all player jerseys will have 'Buffalo' as their nameplate. The matching New Era on-field cap is royal blue with a gold brim, once again featuring the blue and gold standing Buffalo baseball logo.
