    One of several Bruins jerseys consigned to this auction by Boston Garden worker!

    1966-67 Johnny Bucyk Game Worn Boston Bruins Jersey--Photo Matched! He's represented the Boston Bruins from 1957 to this day, earning Hall of Fame immortality on the ice before transitioning to various front office roles after hanging up his skates in 1978. Despite his intimidating size and a reputation for devastating hip checks, Bucyk was a scorer at heart, retiring as number four on the career points list. No Bruin in franchise history has scored more goals (545).

    He'd add eighteen to that tally during the season the offered home white knit gamer was put through its paces, with thirty assists, captaining a team that was closing out eight seasons of playoff drought en route to the era of glory that his rookie teammate Bobby Orr would soon help deliver to Beantown.

    The design is as classic as it gets, with the team logo crest applied to center chest and number "9," a digit properly retired in Bucyk's honor, sewn to each striped sleeve and reverse. A captain's "C" appears over the heart. Interior hem holds proper "Wilson [size] 46" label and the remnants of a washing instructions tag. A stamped inventory code nearby is similar to those found on many Bruins and Celtics garments from the period.

    Marvelous game wear is apparent, with eight team repairs scattered about the jersey's surface and all tagging and identifiers softened by salty sweat. Stick marks, board burns, board paint transfers and inner pilling likewise bear witness to the brutality of the professional game. A letter of authenticity from GameWornAuctions supplies a photograph of Bucyk wearing this jersey. LOA from GameWornAuctions. Photo match. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Letter of provenance from Boston Garden worker.
