Lot #22

This road orange knit gamer by Wilson was worn by Kevin Morrison during the 1974-75 WHA season. Morrison began his professional career in 1969-70, playing in the EHL and CHL. He would spend the next few seasons between the CHL and AHL, representing New Haven, Omaha, Fort Worth, Rochester and Tidewater along the way. This enforcer put his fists to good use during the 1970-71 EHL season, playing in 78 games and amassing 415 PIMS! Kevin made his WHA debut with the New York Golden Blades in 1973-74 and finished 2nd in team scoring behind Andre Lacroix. Morrison trekked with the franchise from New Jersey to San Diego and put forth his finest season in his first year on the West Coast. In a full slate of 78 games, Kevin scored 81 points and added 143 PIMS and was recognized as one of the leagues premier players as he earned 1st Team WHA All Star honors. Morrison spent 3 years with the Mariners and then finished up his WHA career with Indianapolis and Quebec. After the league’s collapse, Morrison spent a year with the NHL’s Colorado Rockies before announcing his retirement. As the fight fans know, this tough guy was a participant in a couple of hockey’s all-time great fights, one against Battleship Kelly and another against Steve Durbano.

Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. Sewn to the right shoulder is the San Diego Mariners team logo. Sewn into the collar is the Wilson manufacturers tag. The game wear on this size 46 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, stitch pops and fine inner pilling. Morrison earned 1st team WHA All Star honors while wearing this jersey during road games as the San Diego Mariners competed in their inaugural WHA season. This example with its lettering, numbering and circular shoulder patch remains in completely original condition. A spectacular all-original offering from the Mariners inaugural season with still vibrant colors that sports the coveted letter of honor, choice!
