Lot 81733 View Catalog


1979-80 John Garrett Game Worn Hartford Whalers Jersey - From Franchise's Inaugural NHL Season! One of several historically significant game-worn hockey sweaters in our April Signature Auction, here we present star goaltender turned color commentator John Garrett's Hartford Whalers jersey from the franchise's inaugural NHL season. Sure to fill the void in most rare hockey sweater collections, this green mesh away shirt displays the proper "Stall & Dean", "[size] 50" and "9 [year -79]" tags in the collar. The team's classic logo patch is at front and center, while two-color tackle twill name and numerals on the back. Exhibiting nice game wear, with sticks and puck marks throughout, its original fight strap has been removed. One of only a handful of Whalers shirts ever to hit the auction block, this example will be sure to turn the heads of most discerning collectors. LOA from Joe Tomon.
