In my collection you will find a reprint of the Front page Columbus Dispatch from 10/8/00 declaring "Making history - Blue Jackets take to the ice in NHL debut" with a photograph of Robert Kron winning the CBJ's first ever face off in their first ever game. Below the photo is a list of the opening day roster and a photo of the ticket issued for the game.
- A pennant from the first game, the program and ticket from the first game, a pocket schedule for the first season, logo sticker, one of the patches that were worn on the jerseys that year, a signed Knutsen and Heward Inaugural Season logo puck, an unsigned Inaugural Season logo puck
- An Inaugural Season team photo signed by Whitney, Knutsen and Denis
- Finally, a game used puck from the first game that was shot into the crowd at Nationwide Arena.
I have many other items from the Blue Jackets first season but these are some of the better items.What an incredible collection...thank you, Charles, for sharing!
