1960's Gordie Howe Detroit Red Wings Game Worn Jersey
Only one player can lay claim to the handle "Mr. Hockey". Gordie Howe did it all. Howe retired from the game at the astonishing age of fifty-one after thirty-two seasons with six Hart's, four Stanley Cups, 801 goals and 1850 points. And that's not counting WHA stats! Gordie wore this red and white uniform towards the end of his tenure with the Detroit Red Wings. This heavy dureen jersey features the embroidered winged wheel crest on the front with Howe's number "9" on the back and again on each sleeve. The collar displays the "Olympic Sporting Goods" supplier label with the size "48" fly tag below. An additional tag in the hem identifies General Athletic as the manufacturer and helps in dating the jersey to the mid-to-late 1960's. Gordie was not one to tuck in the elbows and this jersey has the scars to prove it. One sleeve is plastered with eight team repairs and another stitched patch appears on the opposite arm. Further testament to the trainer's sewing skills can be found on the body of the jersey. Decent wear throughout with a few black stick slashes, some board burns and a number of unrepaired holes. This prime example has been thoroughly examined and comes to you with excel-lent documentation and our unwavering assurance of authenticity.
