1976-77 Bobby Clarke Philadelphia Flyers Game Worn Jersey
Lot #1
This road knit gamer was worn by Bobby Clarke during the 1976-77 NHL season. The Philadelphia Flyers selected Clarks in the 2nd round of the 1969 NHL Amateur Draft. He soon after became the face of the franchise and is considered one of the NHL’s all-time greats thanks to his 15 years of service, all with the Philadelphia Flyers. Clarke exuded leadership and Captained the Flyers to back-to-back Stanley Cup titles in 1974 and 1975. He was an adept playmaker who, at the time of his retirement, ranked 4th all-time in assists and was 11th on the NHL’s all-time scoring list. In 1144 games, Clarke scored 358 goals and added 852 assists for a total of 1210 points. His mantel is impressive and full of hardware that includes 2 Stanley Cups, the 1972 Bill Masterton Trophy, the 1973 Lester B. Pearson Trophy, the 1983 Frank J Selke Trophy as the NHL’s best defensive forward and 3 Hart Trophies, won in 1973, 1975 and 1976 as the NHL’s Most Valuable Player. Clarke’s vaunted player number 16 was long ago retired to the rafters in Philadelphia. The Hall of Fame was made to honor players like Clarke.

Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the Captain’s “C”. The game wear on this size L sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired holes, fine inner pilling and nearly a handful of team-sewn repairs. Also worthy of mention is faint evidence of a nameplate on the reverse, consistent with Philadelphia jerseys from this season that saw the Flyers play in a few nationally televised games during which they wore a nameplate. This impressive offering has passed thru the hands of several noted Flyers collectors over the years. Most recently it hailed as the cornerstone item in the Ken "Hammered Hockey" Mace collection prior to his untimely passing. A spectacular Captain’s jersey from the end of the mid 1970’s knit era in Philadelphia when the Broad Street Bullies ruled the NHL and were led into battle by this Hall of Famer from Flin Flon, choice!
