    Description

    1972-75 Chicago Cougars (WHA) Jacket. Rare and beautiful exemplar from the Chicago Cougars (1972-75) of the World Hockey Association (1971-79). The heavy, Kelly green wool exterior is dominated by two huge team patches. The first sits over the left breast and features a gold embroidered cougar atop a white canvas backdrop, both trimmed in green. The second displays on the verso with "Chicago Cougars" and the team cat all embroidered in gold and green atop a die-cut white canvas backdrop trimmed in white. Other notable accents include a five-gold-snap front, thick gold felt trim with gold piping down the sleeves, green/white/gold ribbed wrist cuff, and green leather-lined front pockets trimmed in gold braid. The inner lining of the garment is quilted in a muted gold hue with a fabric tag (detached) which has "40" written in red pen and another size "40" tag in the left pocket. Minor distractions include light wear on the sleeve braid, pocket trim, and a tear at the lower front which that goes through to the lining. Still, this piece remains stunning and exquisite. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
