Description:
Mid 1970's Gordie Howe Game Used Hockey Stick - Used During Tenure With the Houston Aeros. Given that his 26-year NHL career included countless awards and accomplishments, it seemed that the book had closed on Gordie Howe's stellar career. Not one fan would have felt shorted, as Howe's prowess was enough that he essentially already racked up the statistics for two Hall of Fame careers. All that said, in 1973 it only seems fitting that the iconic sports figure added the feat of taking an entire league under his wing when he joined the World Hockey Association.

Offered here is an extremely rare game-used hockey stick that was used by "Mr. Hockey" during his memorable WHA tenure. Stamped "Sher-Wood P.M.P.", it also features the proper "HOWE 9" stamp below the handle. Original tape is applied to the blade and handle, while the historic twig exhibits nice use throughout. Uncracked and absolutely gorgeous, this is one of the nicer game-used pieces to hit the auction block representing arguably the best player ever to lace up the skates. LOA from Bill Campbell/Heritage Auctions.
