1972-74 Bobby Rousseau New York Rangers Game Worn Jersey
Lot #19

This home white dureen gamer by Cosby was worn by Bobby Rousseau during the 1972-74 NHL seasons. Rousseau made his NHL debut with the Montreal Canadiens in 1960-61 and earned rookie of the year honors in 1962 when he was awarded the Calder Trophy. Bobby spent 10 years with Les Habitants where he played in 5 Stanley Cup Finals and walked away with 4 Stanley Cup Rings. He next spent a lone season with the Minnesota North Stars before joining the New York Rangers in 1971-72. Rousseau called New York home for the final 4 years of his career. All told this winger played 15 NHL seasons and a total of 942 regular season games. He was twice a 30-goal scorer and ended his career with 245 goals, 458 assists and 703 points, quite impressive for his era. Rousseau earned 2nd Team NHL All Star honors in 1966 and played in 3 NHL All Star games as well as the 1960 Olympics for Team Canada.

Sewn into the hem of this vintage tie-down is the Cosby and size 44 tagging. The original tie remains sewn thru the eyelets. Affixed to the inside is the old school garter style fight strap. The game wear on this 40-year old sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, inner pilling and several team-sewn repairs. The overall condition of this jersey is remarkable having been incredibly preserved over the past 40 some odd years. The Rangers pioneered the concept of wearing player names on their jerseys and did so during home games beginning in the early 1970’s, making this all-original NOB offering a treat certainly worthy of mention. Sweet 4-decade old dureen from a 4-time Cup winner and 3-time NHL All Star, choice!
