    Mid-1950's Detroit Red Wings White Cardigan Sweater. They sure don't make sports souvenirs like they used to. This high-quality white and red cardigan sweater was purchased by former Red Wings head coach, Jim Skinner, in the mid-1950's for his daughter, Holly. Obtained from the son of Skinner, this piece remains in nearly the same condition as on the day it was originally purchased. All six buttons still intact, as is the original Red Wings patch on the left breast (bottom is partially separated from use). In addition, an American and Canadian Flag patch is applied to the left shoulder. "Coane [size] 36" tag is in the collar of this sweater that measures 16" from shoulder to shoulder, and 23" from top to bottom. A great relic from one of the greatest eras in Red Wings history. LOA from Jim Skinner Jr.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $1,200 - $1,500.
