This game worn jersey from the 1978-79 Pittsburgh Penguins features a unique, and thankfully not oft-repeated, style. A smattering of clashing colors grace the jersey, which is predominantly white with blue and light blue trim. The Penguins crest is front and center, with its black, white, and yellow scheme having little to do with the surrounding hodgepodge of color. It is all original with the number "23" appearing on the back in purple with blue stitching; the number also appears on both sleeves but in white. "SCHUTT" is sewn on a name plate in the back as the jersey belonged to Todd Schutt, who had a relatively brief stint in the NHL. A Stahl & Dean tag appears in the collar with washing instructions and a size 52 tag. A "7" tag can also be found in the collar which denotes the jersey was made in 1977. Since Schutt was not with the Penguins that year the jersey is a hold-over from the previous season and was lettered and numbered when he joined the team. It shows fine use with at least 11 team repairs, as well as other use in the form of stick marks and some scuffs and burns, and has a metal clip style fight strap inside.
