1974-75 Danny Grant Detroit Red Wings Game Worn Jersey - 50-Goal Season - Photo Match
Lot #90

This road red dureen gamer by Rawlings was worn by Danny Grant during the 1974-75 NHL season. Grant made his NHL debut with the Montreal Canadiens in 1965-66. He played with Les Habitants for a couple of years prior to joining the Minnesota North Stars where he played for 6 seasons, while making 3 NHL All Star Games, scoring better than 30-Goals on 3 different occasions and capturing the Calder Trophy as rookie of the year in 1968-69. The North Stars surprisingly saw fit to deal their All Star to the Detroit Red Wings in exchange for hometown hero Henry Boucha prior to the 1974-75 season. Grant exploded with a 50-Goal season in his first year in the Motor City, becoming only the 2nd Red Wing to score 50-Goals in a season. Danny spent parts of 4 years in Detroit and finished up his career with parts of two more in Los Angeles.

Sewn into the collar alongside the Rawlings tag is a 1” longer tag. The game wear on this size 48 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, inner pilling and a couple of handfuls of team-sewn repairs. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Grant wearing this exact jersey against Bobby Orr and the Bruins at Boston Garden during the 1974-75 season. Evidence of the removal of a TV nameplate exists on the upper verso while the original garter style fight strap remains sewn inside just beneath the back player numbers. A wonderful vintage photo matched offering that was worn by Grant during his historic 50-Goal season, as he became just the 2nd player in Detroit Red Wings history to accomplish the feat, choice!
