    Description

    Another ironclad gamer from a former Boston Garden employee!

    1973-74 Phil Esposito Game Worn Boston Bruins Jersey--Photo Matched!

    UPDATE: This lot will be accompanied by an LOA from Perry Nelson.

    Only the Stanley Cup would elude the game's greatest offensive weapon this year, as Espo would run the table on personal awards with the Hart Memorial (NHL MVP), the Ted Lindsay (Most Outstanding Player) and the Art Ross (top points scorer). It was the only year of his Hall of Fame career that he notched this historic trifecta. His 1973-74 stat line is awash in the bold ink of league supremacy as well, with 78 games, 68 goals, 145 points, 50 even-strength goals and 393 shots on goal each an NHL superlative.

    As one might expect, such eye-popping stats do not come without a physical toll, and we see the evidence here in the form of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfers, interior pilling and a team repair. The rear nameplate, worn for televised contests, is removed here, but otherwise the garment remains in glorious, as-issued condition but for a few stains suffered during storage.

    We love the uniquely fonted "A" for "assistant captain" at upper chest, and the super-cool "Bruins 50th Anniversary" patch at each shoulder. The classic team crest is affixed at upper chest beneath the classic crossover collar, with number "7" at each bicep and verso. Interior collar holds "Wilson" maker's label with handwritten size "56." Fight strap remains at lower rear interior tail.

    This is one of several jerseys consigned to this auction by a former worker at Boston Garden, each of which will include his letter of provenance. The included letter of authenticity from GameWornAuctions provides a pair of photos of Esposito wearing the subject jersey, supplying the most ironclad assurance of authenticity possible. LOA from GameWornAuctions. Photo matches. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Letter of provenance from Boston Garden worker. LOA from Perry Nelson.
