Description:
Worn while netting the Cup-winning clincher in overtime!
1980 Bob Nystrom Stanley Cup Finals Game Six Game Worn New York Islanders Jersey. No greater thrill exists in the sport, and the most celebrated moments (Toe Blake in 1944, Bill Barilko in 1951, Bobby Orr in 1970) tend to revolve around overtime Stanley Cup clinchers. The childhood fantasy of every boy to have strapped on a pair of skates was lived by star right winger Bob Nystrom in the sixth game of the 1980 Stanley Cup, who earned the nickname of "Mr. Islander" for netting the most famous goal in franchise history. Presented is the jersey he was wearing when he did it.

The date was May 24, 1980, and the Islanders were hosting the Philadelphia Flyers at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, leading the Stanley Cup Finals by a tally of three games to two. A blown call by referee Leon Stickle had given the home team an early lead but Philadelphia bravely battled back, and at the end of regulation the score was deadlocked at four. Almost seven minutes into sudden-death, coach Al Arbour sent his third line of Lorne Henning, John Tonelli and Nystrom onto the ice. Henning, an original Islander like Nystrom, collected the puck in the defensive half and passed across the red line to Tonelli, cutting into the middle from left to right. He bore down on Flyers defenseman Moose Dupont as he crossed the blue line and spotted Nystrom breaking for the net a half stride ahead of defender Bob Dailey, threading a perfect pass onto Nystrom's stick. A quick backhand thrust lofted the puck on goal, barely clearing goalie Pete Peeters' blocker to end the 1979-80 NHL season.

The home white mesh jersey exhibits heavy wear that concluded with the Stanley Cup clincher, the scattered scuffs, holes and marks from pucks, sticks and boards essential in photo matching the sweater to that unforgettable evening on Long Island. The team logo crest is applied at center chest, with number "23," since retired by the franchise, appearing on each sleeve and on verso, where it stands in ten-inch font beneath a block lettered "Nystrom." A patch for the 1980 Winter Olympics at Lake Placid, site of another memorable hockey story in New York State that year, appears at left shoulder. Interior collar holds dual tagging from "W.A. Goodman & Sons" and local distributor "Bill Vanderburg Company." Fight strap remains affixed to lower rear interior tail.

The sight of the helmet-less Nystrom leaping into the air as he's swarmed by his teammates, the fans in hysterics beyond the plexiglass, will stand forever with Gehrig at the microphone and Namath with his index finger aloft as one of the definitive images of New York sports, and this is unquestionably your best opportunity to own the jersey worn by the primary figure in those scenes. For many thousands living east of the East River, it simply doesn't get any better than this. LOA from Joe Tomon. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
