1963-64 Pete Stemkowski Toronto Marlboros Game Worn Jersey - Memorial Cup Champions
Lot #298
This blue wool gamer was worn by Pete Stemkowski during the 1963-64 OHA Memorial Cup winning season. Stemkowski enjoyed a lengthy NHL career that began with the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1963-64. He would play in 967 NHL games over the course of 15 seasons. Pete spent parts of 5 years with the Maple Leafs in the 1960’s and was part of the 1967 Stanley Cup winning squad. He went on to spend parts of 4 seasons with the Detroit Red Wings, 7 years with the New York Rangers and one final season with the Los Angeles Kings.

Pete Stemkowski led the 1963-64 Toronto Marlboros in scoring as he netted 42 goals and 61 assists for 103 points in merely 51 games played! Pete was brilliant in leading Toronto to a clean sweep of the 1964 Memorial Cup, marking the only time that the Memorial Cup and the Stanley Cup were awarded in the same building, Maple Leaf Gardens!

Sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. The “A”, crest, sleeve and rear player numbers are all made of felt material and have remained in tremendous condition over the past 50-years. Sewn thru the eyelets is the original tie-string. The game wear on this wool jersey is tremendous and features a couple of handfuls of small un-repaired holes and no less than 50 team-sewn repairs! Stemkowski averaged better than 2-points per game in this Memorial Cup winning season! This amazing vintage offering, complete with its letter of honor, is now a half-century removed from the ice and would become an instant highlight in any collection of wool gamers and easily ranks as one of the finest minor league sweaters that we’ve ever had the pleasure of offering, choice!
