“The Flower” produced his most prolific goal-scoring season in 1977-78, a memorable campaign which was capped by a Stanley Cup triumph; the Canadiens’ 20th Stanley Cup in their illustrious history. Lafleur donned this home (white) NHL All-Star jersey while representing the Campbell Conference at Buffalo’s Memorial Auditorium on January 24, 1978. The jersey features several light stick marks across the front, along with the bold NHL crest in the middle and two smaller NHL crests inside of orange stars on the chest. NHL crests are sewn on each shoulder above Lafleur’s customary number “10” on each sleeve. The right sleeve displays a few stick marks and one board burn which created an un-repaired hole on the elbow. Several more stick marks are on the left sleeve along with another un-repaired hole. Lafleur’s name is sewn directly onto the back above the number “10” while size “48” and Gerry Cosby tags are sewn into the collar. A magnificent example from Lafleur’s greatest season as he captured the Hart and Art Ross Trophies as the league’s MVP and leading scorer, respectively.
