Circa 1935-36 Paul Thompson Game Worn Chicago Blackhawks Jersey. Rare and important style in the evolution of Chicago Blackhawks sweaters is the final step in the progression toward the famed "barber pole" look that defined the franchise for decades. One of the only surviving examples of its kind, this gamer once shared the ice with left winger Paul Thompson, who would trade his skates for the clipboard immediately after claiming the 1938 Stanley Cup for a six-year tenure as the club's head coach. Not even the Hockey Hall of Fame can boast of this jersey variant in its holdings.

The sweater survives with remarkable aplomb, patched with twelve to fourteen vintage team repairs but bearing none of the staining, tearing or moth holes typical of ancient wool garments. The classic chenille team logo patch remains affixed at the chest, with Thompson's number "6" applied in black chenille to verso. Perhaps seven percent of the stitching here has come loose, causing no visual distraction. A french embroidered swatch at interior hem reads "Thompson" in elegant script. Housed in the family estate of Paul Thompson in Calgary, Alberta until the mid-1990's, this jersey makes its second, and quite possibly final, auction appearance within this Platinum Night event. LOA from MeiGray. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
