The sport's most beautiful garment from the team's career points leader
Circa 1960 Stan Mikita Game Worn Chicago Black Hawks
For twenty-two seasons, this Czech-born Hall of Famer was the face of Windy City hockey, an eight-time All-Star with two Byngs, two Harts, four Ross Trophies and a 1961 Stanley Cup Championship ring. The presented gorgeous red wool garment finds the franchise leader in both games played and points scored very early in that long march to immortality, the black collar and sleeve number positioning consistent with Black Hawks imagery we find in both the 1960 and 1961 Topps Hockey sets.
You'll still find that classic Indian-head emblem on Chicago jerseys to this day, but the number "21" that appears in white tackle twill on sleeves and verso was raised to the rafters of Chicago Stadium in 1980, the season Mikita played the last of his record 1,394 games for the Black Hawks.
Marvelous game wear bears witness to Mikita's fearless playing style during those early years when he was one of the most penalized players in the league, the jersey exhibiting stick marks, board burns, inner pilling and more than a dozen team repairs. Proper "Wilson [size] 48" label appears at interior center tail. The earliest and finest Mikita gamer ever to appear on the hobby's major auction block. LOA from Spivak & Kraut. LOA from Heritage Auctions.

Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
