    1940's Boston Olympics Game Worn Jersey. One of the most attractive styles in our October Signature Auction, here we present this gorgeous wool sweater worn by a Boston Olympics player in the 1940's. The defunct farm team for the Boston Bruins played in the Eastern Amateur Hockey League from 1940-52, and this catalog listing represents one of only a few examples ever offered at auction.

    Jersey shows several team repairs and solid game use throughout, while the unique team logo patch is presented on the front. "Jim McCarthy" tag is affixed to the lower hem, and a "[size] 46" tag is stitched in the collar. Most likely worn by more than one player in several seasons, a No. 4 sewn-on felt identifier is displayed on the back. Overall condition of the jersey is solid, while it has several small unrepaired holes throughout. Superb game-worn shirt from the gone but not forgotten east coast squad. LOA from Joe Tomon.
