Description
1969-70 & 1970-71 Don Awrey Boston Bruins Stanley Cup Finals Game Worn Jersey - Photo Match - Video Match
Lot #22
This home black dureen gamer by Wilson was worn by Don Awrey during the 1969-70 and 1970-71 NHL seasons, including the 1970 Stanley Cup Finals. Awrey began his NHL career with the Bruins in 1963-64. All told he would spend 11 seasons with the Bruins, winning 2 Stanley Cups in the process. After leaving Boston, Don went on to play for the Blues, Canadiens, Penguins, Rangers and Rockies. Awrey was a gritty defenseman who finished 2nd leaguewide in PIMS in 1967-68 and 5th in 1968-69. Awrey was a member of Team Canada for the 1972 Summit Series and he was also an NHL All Star.


The game wear on this vintage dureen is solid and consists of stick marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired holes, stitch pops, gobs of heavy pilling both inside and out and about 20 team-sewn repairs. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Awrey wearing this exact jersey during game 3 of the 1970 Stanley Cup Finals, merely one game before Bobby Orr’s Stanley Cup winner that saw him flying through the air. Incidentally, Awrey was one of just 5 Bruin skaters on the ice as Orr netted the Cup winner and he was wearing this jersey! Also shown above are some video highlights of the 1970 Stanley Cup celebration with Awrey clearly wearing this sweater with its unique attributes. Also included are video matched highlights of a fight between Awrey and Gerry Hart during the early part of the 1970-71 season. You can see Hart tugging upon Awrey’s collar and the subsequent trauma where there is now significant team-sewn repairwork! This coincides with all we know about vintage Bruins game worn jerseys, as they were a frugal organization that recycled their gamers from one season to the next! An incredible opportunity to acquire a photo and video matched Stanley Cup Finals jersey worn by this All Star defenseman as the Bruins won their first of two Stanley Cups during the Bobby Orr era, choice!
