1983-84 EDMONTON OILERS # 13 KEN LINSEMAN STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONSHIP
GAME WORN JERSEY - PHOTO MATCHED
This jersey hails from the Wexler collection of Edmonton Oiler game worn jerseys purchased from Peter Pocklington in 1997. It has been in a private collection since that time. The jersey is photo matched to the studio portrait commissioned by the Edmonton Oilers after their victory in which each player was photographed while seated on a stool in the middle of the Northland's ice surface, in full equipment and jersey, holding the Stanley Cup. The repair in the white stripe of Linseman's left arm matches perfectly in the photo. Linseman began his NHL career with the Philadelphia Flyers and was traded to the Edmonton Oilers via the Hartford Whalers for Risto Siltanen. A fierce competitor, Linseman helped lead the Oilers to their first Stanley Cup while scoring 10 goals and 14 points in the 1983-84 playoffs. He played in all 19 games for the team. He was then traded in June of 1984 to the Boston Bruins for Mike Krushelnyski.
This is a classic blue Nike jersey from the Edmonton Oilers dynasty. And more significantly, worn in every away playoff game during their first Stanley Cup Championship. The jersey comes with the Oilers letter of sale and the Meigray Certificate of Registration.
