    1957-58 Marcel Pronovost Game Worn Jersey. A native of Quebec, Marcel Pronovost failed to get the attention of the Montreal Canadian scouts and was instead scooped up by the Detroit Red Wings, turning pro in 1949. A solid defensive presence with the Red Wings, Pronovost was a permanent fixture in Detroit starting in 1951-52, eventually being promoted to an alternate captain behind Gordie Howe in the middle of the decade. The Hall of Famer was a part of four Hockeytown championship teams during the 1950s.

    A fantastic example of Pronovost's white wool sweater comes to us here from his 1957-58 campaign and includes the iconic winged wheel crest on the chest. The alternate captain's "A" has also been sewn onto the jersey front in a 3" red-on-white tackle twill. Manufactured by Lippman's Sporting Goods in Detroit, the garment has tagging from the company in the tail as well as a "48" size tag. Each sleeve includes 3" number "3", a development that did not begin until the 1956-57 season. Verso has a 10.5" tackle twill "3" that exhibits some puckering and has a small hole near the top. Condition is fabulous, with four unrepaired holes in the jersey body and a team repair on the front near the waist stripe. Sleeves each have several team repairs and great material pilling.

    Jersey was acquired from a friend of former Red Wing head coach and front office man Jimmy Skinner having been in his possession for almost fifty years. A top-notch Hall of Fame wool -- one of the most-desirable and recognizable NHL designs in the hobby and a must-have for those devout to Hockeytown. LOA from MeiGray. Guide Value or Estimate: $6,000 - $11,000.
