As a jersey decorator, surely you know the excitement a player has when first getting that personalized jersey – an excitement that is revived each time they wear your work for a game.

There’s also the excitement of getting the jersey of your favorite player, and showing your loyalty for all the world to see. One little fan experienced that excitement, with the added thrill that the jersey came straight from her favorite player.

Five-year-old Libby Lu was crushed that her favorite player, T.J. Oshie, had been traded from her favorite team, the St. Louis Blues, to the Washington Capitals. A video of her tearful reaction soon went viral.

Oshie heard about the video and, after a conversation with Libby on ESPN’s SportsCenter, sent her a care package, including a signed #77 Capitals jersey. As you can see in the picture above, her smile alone was surely worth it.
