1975-76 Terry Holbrook WHA Cleveland Crusaders Game Worn Jersey - The Twin Cities WHA Find
Lot #27

This fresh to the hobby example is part of an exciting find of newly discovered WHA jerseys that were recently sourced from the Twin Cities. This collection is being offered to the hobby for the first time via the Fall 2019 Auction, exclusively at GAMEWORNAUCTIONS.NET.

This road purple dureen gamer by Rawlings was worn by Terry Holbrook during the 1975-76 WHA season. The Los Angeles Kings selected Holbrook in the 3rd round of the 1970 NHL Amateur Draft. After playing for the AHL’s Springfield Kings and Cleveland Barons, Holbrook made his NHL debut in 1972-73 with the Minnesota North Stars where he played for a couple of years. In 1974-75 the WHA came calling and Holbrook signed on with the Cleveland Crusaders where he played for two seasons before retiring from the sport in 1976.

Sewn into the collar of this gamer is the Rawlings tag. The game wear on this 1st set size 48 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer and inner pilling. Holbrook saw action in just 15 games during the regular season in his last year with the Crusaders, wearing this sweater during road games. Featuring a beautiful chain stitched tackle twill crest and all sewn-on lettering and numbering this heavy weight purple gamer was part of the last set of road dureen sweaters worn during the Crusaders existence. This enchanting example is still bursting with color having sat unbeknownst to us all since leaving the ice some 44 years ago. This fresh to the hobby offering is one of six recently discovered WHA game worn jerseys that are part of the exciting Twin Cities WHA Collection, choice!
