    Circa 1980-82 Lanny McDonald Game Worn Jersey - Rare Colorado Rockies Example! Hockey Hall of Famer Lanny McDonald presented a storybook career in his 17 seasons in the National Hockey League. While sporting his bushy red hair and unforgettable mustache, McDonald was a leader on every team he played with, and turned in his most impressive season in 1983 when he battled the great Wayne Gretzky for the scoring title, with an impressive 66 goals. Regarded as a local hero in Calgary for bringing home the Stanley Cup for the Flames during his final season in the NHL, McDonald wore this rare style jersey in the early 1980's during his time with the Colorado Rockies. Originating from a private collection in the early 1980's, this impressive blue Durene sweater features tackle twill numerals on the sleeves and verso, and features a uniquely sewn-over tackle twill name, which covers the standard screened-on NOB. The reason for the reinforced lettering, was due to the fact that the standard Rockies' back font was susceptible to peeling and flaking, and the tackle twill fabric presented McDonald's name in a much more attractive appearance. Nice game wear is exhibited, with pilling of the sleeve number, three shoulder board burns and two team repairs on the left sleeves. Jersey has the proper "Sandow" tag in the collar, while measuring at the proper "[size] 52". One of the most unique and scarce hockey jerseys in our April Signature sale, this piece will be sure to stand out in even the most impressive of collections. LOA from Spirit of the Game.
