Aspen Based Collector Has DU Covered

(above) Raifie Bass' collection is the envy of DU hockey fans

Special to LetsGoDU

Raifie Bass has been collecting game worn hockey jerseys for 20 years. He also probably has one of the largest collections of DU hockey jerseys on the planet. When he contacted LetsGoDU, we knew we had to get the "inside story."

Raifie got into sports memorabilia originally by collecting NHL jerseys. His main focus had been collecting shirts of all of the 500 goal scorers in the NHL.

Sixteen years ago he moved to Colorado and started adding the history of Colorado hockey to his collection. He owns shirts from DU, Colorado College, Air Force, the Denver Spurs, Colorado Rockies, Colorado Flames, Denver Rangers, Denver Grizzlies, Colorado Gold Kings and the Colorado Eagles.

Raifie will be attending the Frozen Four in March and LetsGoDU will keep you posted on when and where to view his collection.

He is always looking to add great Colorado hockey items and especially DU items to his collection. If you have any jerseys that might be of interest feel free to email him at 500goals@sopris.net

I miss those awesome McD's jerseys. It fit Denver players so well since many of them would be saying "Would you like fries with that?" soon after they finished playing for the Pioneers. Especially Judd Stauss.
