1971-72 Bobby Hull Black Hawks Game Used Team Signed Stick
Lot #151

This Gunzos hockey stick was game used by Bobby Hull during the 1971-72 NHL season.  Besides Bobby signing the stick "This is my game used stick Bobby Hull #9", there are beautiful signatures of 18 members of the 1971-72 Chicago Black Hawks.  The signatures include:  Bobby Hull, Stan Mikita, Keith Magnuson (deceased), Dennis Hull, Pit Martin, Pat Stapleton, Andre Lacroix and Tony Esposito.

Bobby finished his NHL career with 610 goals, which is still good for 11th on the all-time list despite playing 411 games in the WHA. He finished with 1170 NHL points, another lofty total in the sports history. After a 15-year NHL career as a member of the Chicago Black Hawks, Hull jumped to the WHA’s Winnipeg Jets where he spent the next 7 seasons. In those 7 seasons, Hull scored 303 goals and amassed 638 points in a mere 411 games played while in his mid to late 30’s.

In a prominent list, which ranks the Top 50 players in WHA history Bobby Hull was voted a resounding #1. This is something that nobody would argue. The publicity surrounding the signing of Bobby Hull by the WHA’s Winnipeg franchise was enough to lift an entire league to respectability.

Hull played part of one more NHL season following the collapse of the WHA as a 40-year-old for both the Winnipeg Jets and Hartford Whalers. His list of awards include being a (12) time 1st or 2nd team NHL All Star and a (5) time 1st or 2nd team WHA All Star. Bobby won (1) Stanley Cup, (1) Lester Patrick Trophy for outstanding service to hockey in the United States, (1) Lady Byng Trophy for the combination of sportsmanship and high ability, (3) Art Ross Trophies for leading the NHL in scoring, (2) Hart Memorial Trophies as NHL MVP and (2) Gary Davidson trophies as the WHA MVP. A professional career that includes over 900 goals and 1800 career points ranks The Golden Jet as one of Hockey’s all-time greats.

This Gunzos hockey stick is fully taped on both the butt and the blade.  It has the player name "Hull" stamped on the side and the player number "9" written in black marker on the side.  An absolutely stunning team signed stick from one the greatest players to ever lace up the skates.
