    1958-59 Ted Lindsay Stanley Cup Playoffs Game Worn Chicago Black Hawks Jersey. With world-class aesthetics to match its elite heritage, the presented sweater derives from the family of a close friend of Walter "Gunzo" Humeniuk, the backup goaltender and assistant trainer for the 1955-61 Chicago Black Hawks who would begin a successful second career in sporting goods following his retirement from the ice. The gorgeous jersey is believed to have been worn by his teammate Lindsay during the Black Hawks' single series of post-season play in 1959, exhibiting light but definite game wear and inspiring leading expert Brad Moore to declare it "without a doubt the best preserved late 50's Blackhawk sweater in the hobby" in the attending letter of authenticity.

    Lindsay's diminutive size belied his brutal style of play, which earned him the nickname Terrible Ted and more than 400 stitches before he finally lost count. Considered by many the finest left winger ever to wear an NHL uniform, Lindsay was a nine-time All-Star and four-time Stanley Cup Champion. Yet game worn jerseys from this legendary bruiser remain the most elusive of quarry. Lindsay's number "7" appears on verso in white tackle twill, and again on each sleeve, where the positioning of the numeral and tomahawk allows us to pinpoint the jersey's exact vintage. The next season Lindsay would wear the Assistant Captain's letter "A" on his chest, a feature properly absent here.

    The classic and elegantly crafted Indian head patch remains unblemished on the chest, confidently asserting its claim to the status of most attractive style in NHL fashion. The tie-down collar features its original lace, and the proper "Lippman's" manufacturer's label remains at interior seam. Size measures to a "44," proper for Lindsay. Two team repairs and a scattering of stick slashes recall the semifinals meeting with the eventual Stanley Cup Champion Montreal Canadiens. LOA from Brad Moore. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
