    1955-57 Game Worn Boston Bruins Jersey. Vintage white wool sweater has gold and black striping on the shoulders, arms and waist, with a circular Bruins crest and "25" all sewn on the front and back, respectively, in three-color silver/gold/white satin twill. All important tagging in the inner back tail includes "Jim McCarthy Athletic Equipment. Somerville, Mass." and "46."

    The jersey can be dated to the 1955-57 era by the striping pattern and placement, lack of sleeve numbers, and tagging. During this era, number "25" was worn by Al Nicholson, Ellard O'Brien, and Floyd Hillman. The jersey exhibits excessive wear (with fraying identifiers and holes to the wool) from two seasons of NHL and, undoubtedly, continued action at the Bruins training camp and with their minor league affiliate (Estevan Bruins of the WCJHL), as it was common practice for the Bruins at that time to recycle their jerseys after the season. A rare exemplar from a golden era. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
