This Sunday Gold mesh gamer by Sandow SK was worn by Ron Stackhouse during the 1981-82 NHL season. The Oakland Seals selected Stackhouse 18th overall in the 1969 NHL Amateur Draft. He began his NHL career in 1970-71 with the California Golden Seals and spent just more than a year with the club before he joined the Detroit Red Wings early in 1971-72. After 2 and a half seasons in the Motor City, Stackhouse joined the Pittsburgh Penguins, the team he is most remembered for having played with. Ron spent 9 years patrolling the blueline for the Penguins. During that time he became one of the league’s more adept offensive defenseman. In 1974-75, Stackhouse lit the lamp a career best 15 times and registered 60 points. The following season he tallied a career best 60 assists en route to a 71-point campaign, also a career high for this blueliner. Stackhouse represented the Penguins in the NHL All Star game in Detroit in 1980.
The game wear on this Sunday Gold sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer and areas of pilling. The all sewn on nameplate is certainly a treat worthy of mention. A terrific and tough to find style that resides on many wantlists.
