1974-75 Springfield Indians Game Worn Jersey Player #17 Calder Cup Season
Lot #414
This road blue mesh gamer by Champion was worn by player number 17 during the 1974-75 AHL Calder Cup winning season. This intriguing set of sweaters was produced on behalf of Eddie Shore who saved the team from nearly folding in January of 1975, and then changed the team nickname from the Kings to the Indians in February, smack dab in the middle of the season. The purple and gold colors were replaced with this set of red, white and blue jerseys and worn through the season’s final stretch that saw them win their final 15 home games on their way to the most improbable Calder Cup Championship in AHL history later that spring.

The sleeves on this jersey have been shortened. The game wear on this size 48 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes and trauma, inner pilling and a half-dozen team-sewn repairs. This championship set of sweaters were worn without player names on back and were created and owned by Hall of Famer Eddie Shore himself. An important set of sweaters that hail from a magnificent and intriguing time in Springfield hockey history as the club inexorably rolled to their fifth Calder Cup Championship.
