Gordie Howe Game-Worn 1977 WHA All-Star Jersey
Wow - what a tremendous opportunity to own a piece of hockey history. This jersey was game-worn by Mr. Hockey himself Gordie Howe during the 1977 WHA All-Star Game in Hartford, CT. This was Howe's fourth season in the WHA and last with the Houston Aeros who he starred with his sons Mark and Marty. Gordie wasn't just selected to the All-Star Game for name recognition, he earned his spot that season by scoring 68 points in only 62 games.
The blue Western All-Star jersey displays the WHA logo on the front and reads "G. Howe #9" on the reverse. Even though this wasn't a physical game, Howe never took a shift off and there is some wear to show for it, mainly on the sleeves. Sweat stains are visible around the neck/collar with the tag proudly reading Gerry Cosby Athletic Outfitters but no size.
This jersey comes with a Letter of Authenticity from prominent hockey collector Shawn Chaulk.
