1973-74 Tom Martin WHA Toronto Toros Game Worn Jersey - Inaugural Season
Lot #18

This road blue dureen gamer by Maska was worn by Tom Martin during the 1973-74 WHA season. The Toronto Maple Leafs selected Martin with the 5th overall pick in the 1964 NHL Amateur Draft. This Toronto native made his brief NHL debut with the Leafs in 1967-68 before venturing on a 4-year minor league stint across the CHL and AHL. In 1972-73, the Rebel League came calling and Martin signed on with the Ottawa Nationals for the inaugural WHA season. He and his teammates journeyed from Ottawa to Toronto for the WHA’s 2nd season as the Nationals became the Toros amidst new ownership. Tom played for a couple of seasons in Toronto before heading to Europe to finish up his playing career. Following his playing days, this Toronto native actually spent a couple of successful years behind the bench as Head Coach of the Toronto Marlboros.

Sewn into the collar of this gamer are the Maska and wash instruction tagging. The game wear on this size XL-48 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, un-repaired burn holes, runs, stitch pops, fine inner pilling and some terrific team-sewn repair work found on the sleeve, body and hem of this gamer. Everything is completely original and all-sewn-on to this vintage heavy weight dureen. Martin struck for 25 goals and added 32 assists for 57 points while wearing this jersey as the Toros did battle on the road. This vibrant example features nice game wear, is completely original and was worn during the Toronto Toros inaugural WHA season, choice!
