1978-79 NHL Chicago Black Hawks # 24 Doug Wilson
Game Worn Road Red Jersey
Voted the best jersey in NHL history and rightfully so, this gamer features the eye catching road red style in all its glory. Worn by Norris Trophy winning Defenseman, Doug Wilson in the 1978-79 season the jersey is photo matched multiple times to images featuring him in this jersey. The photo match shows the diagonal black stick mark on the front coming down from the red body into the lower striping as well as the stick mark on the lower white stripe.
The jersey has the 78 year tag in the hem and is riddled with team repairs as was common for these Wilson dureens of this era as they were susceptible to runs in the material. The equipment managers and team seamstresses worked tirelessly to keep up with the repairs on these jerseys. The correct tags of Wilson size 44 and Gunzo are sewn to the collar. In spite of the size 44 tag the chest actually measures to a 52" chest (26 " across). The name bar on the back has been removed which was most common in this frugal period.
Game worn Doug Wilson jerseys do not surface very often and this is from only his second season in the NHL.
