Circa 1954 Gordie Howe Red Wings Game Worn Wool Sweater

Circa 1954 Gordie Howe Red Wings Game Worn Wool Sweater

Spectacular gamer was obtained from Jack Adams, then coach and senior manager of the Detroit Redwings. It is a particularly unique and special find, as it was intended to be sent for use by prison inmates in the Detroit area after Gordie Howe had used it. The crests were removed for obvious reasons, and the stitching for the outlines of the patches are still present on the fabric. But the jersey never made it to prison, its fate turned out to be far better, bestowed upon a deserving member of the public instead. The provenance of this jersey is collaborated by the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. The jersey itself is fantastic wool with Lippmans Sporting Goods tag in the hem with [size] 50 tag. All original number "9" fills the back. Multiple wool team repairs on both sleeves as well as the shoulders and back. There exists possible photo documentation for the jersey on page 83 of the book, <i>The Spirit of the Game</i> published by Triumph, displaying a photo of Gordie Howe in 1954 sporting a red wool sweater with similar markings to the jersey offered here. For display purposes, Mitchell & Ness has provided a crest which the winner can attach himself. Comes with LOA from the shirt's original owner.
