1976-77 Willi Plett Atlanta Flames Game Worn Jersey - Rookie - Calder Trophy - Photo Match
Lot #38

This home dureen gamer by Rawlings was worn by Willi Plett during the 1976-77 NHL season, his rookie year. The Atlanta Flames selected Plett in the 5th round of the 1975 NHL Amatueur Draft.  Willi joined the Flames lineup as a regular in 1976-77. After playing 4 games with Atlanta the season before, Plett began the 1976-77 season with the Tulsa Oilers. After scoring 8 goals and racking up 68 PIMS in 14 games with Tulsa, the Flames decided they couldn’t keep the youngster down any longer. Plett joined the Flames and played in 64 contests, scoring 33 goals and getting 123 PIMS. His tremendous rookie season earned him the Calder Trophy as Rookie of the Year. Willi remained with the Flames for 7 years, two of them after the move to Calgary. He next spent 5 years in Minnesota and a final season with the Boston Bruins before retiring. Plett played in 834 games, scored 222 goals and racked up 2572 PIMS! His single season high in penalty minutes came with the North Stars in 1983-84 when he rung up 316. In 83 playoff games Willi netted 24 goals and amassed 466 PIMS, playing his brand of power forward whenever he took the ice.

Offered here is Plett’s home gamer from his Calder Trophy winning season as Rookie of the Year. Sewn into the collar of this gamer is the Rawlings size 52 tagging. The game wear on this dureen is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, washed out bloodstains, fine inner pilling and a team-sewn repair. Shown above is a photo match of Plett wearing this exact jersey during the 1976-77 season. Also worthy of mention is the faint outline of a TV nameplate. An awesome example, worn as this rookie netted 33 goals and captured the attention of the hockey world.
