CIRCA 1968-69 CHICAGO BLACK HAWKS - CARDIGAN SWEATER
This all original wool cardigan was obtained from a gentleman whose father worked as the lead hand on Bobby Hull's ranch in the 1960's. Bobby Hull gifted this cardigan along with a game used stick to his father.
This cardigan displays in fantastic condition with the chain stitched lettering in the Chicago Black Hawks and Indian Head crest sewn to the left chest along with the "C" tomahawks that adorn each sleeve. These tomahawk logos are the exact same crests that would have been sewn on to the jerseys that the players wore at the time.
The original " Gunzo Sports Center Inc. Berwyn, Illinois" tag is sewn inside the collar. This style of Gunzo tagging last appeared in 1968-69. The sweater presents with a creamy white body with black and orange trim. Two orange trimmed pockets adorn the front. The sweater has a 1" hem and 3" cuffs. The chest measures to 18 1/2" across and the length from the back of the collar to the base of the sweater is 24". The sleeves measure 19" from the shoulder yoke. The sweater has survived in fantastic condition with only two small runs in the wool in the right front body. The buttons are all original with some stretching present in the button holes.
This is first white Chicago Black Hawks cardigan from this period that I have ever handled.
