1975-76 Tony Esposito Chicago Black Hawks Game Worn Jersey

1975-76 Tony Esposito Chicago Black Hawks Game Worn Jersey

The Chicago Black Hawks never failed to make the playoffs with Tony Esposito minding the net from 1970 to 1983. As the younger brother of one of the most dynamic sibling duos in NHL history, Esposito revolutionized the way goaltenders played in net with his legs-open “butterfly” style and his frantic flopping saves. Backstopping the Black Hawks to the Smythe Division championship and a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Esposito won 30 games and compiled a 2.97 GAA and .905 save percentage. This road, red jersey is from that spectacular season and may have very well been worn in the 1976 Stanley Cup Playoffs before the Hawks were bounced in four games. #35 is sewn to both sleeves and the back with the tomahawk logos sitting proudly on each shoulder. One puck mark can be found to the left of the logo with scattered snags and material pulls throughout the front. Light sweat staining is present in the front hem striping. The collar is a v-neck style vs. the cross-over collar as both styles were worn in the same game by different players at times during the mid-70’s. One solid puck mark is evident on the back of the left arm with red post paint on the elbow area and bottom portion of the #5 on the same sleeve. The right arm features even more red post paint transfer on the elbow and the lower left hand portion of the #3. Also, two small un-repaired holes are present on the right sleeve cuff area. Light marks are scattered across the back hem. The numbers on the back show even puckering and use with light red post paint transfers at the bottom. Light pilling inside at the seams, behind the crest with a larger material snag, and more pilling and durene material balling behind the back numbers. Classic!
