    Description

    1972 USSR Olympic Hockey Team Jersey. For over thirty years, from 1956 to 1988, the Soviet Union dominated Olympic hockey, winning seven golds, one silver and one bronze in nine consecutive Olympiads.

    This white wool jersey reports "CCCP" on the chest and "26" on the sleeves in thick dark red felt, "26 on the verso in shiny red satin on thick white felt, and light red trim on the collar, sleeves and waist. While no player identification has yet been made, we have confirmed that that the Soviet team did wear this style jersey during the 1972 Winter Olympic Games in Sapporo, Japan, when they captured the gold medal. At the very best, this jersey was game worn by a Russian Olympian during the 1972 Games. At the very least, the jersey was a team issued extra.

    Considering the scarcity of Soviet hockey jerseys from this period, coupled with its Olympic gold medal pedigree, this exemplar is a wonderful exemplar dating from a golden era in Soviet hockey. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
