1976 Gerry Cheevers Team Canada Canada Cup Pre-Tournament Game Worn Jersey
Lot #27

This white knit gamer by Athletic Knit was worn by Gerry Cheevers during the 1976 Canada Cup. Cheevers began carving out his Hall of Fame NHL career between the pipes back in 1961-62 as a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs. He joined the Boston Bruins in 1965-66 and spent the remaining 12 years of his NHL career in Boston where he won a pair of Stanley Cups. Cheevers also spent 4 seasons in the WHA where he became one of the league’s greatest stars, tending goal for the Cleveland Crusaders. Cheesy played goal for Team Canada during the 1974 Summit Series and the 1976 Canada Cup. He was named the winner of the Ben Hatskin Trophy as the WHA’s top goaltender during the leagues inaugural season and led the WHA in shutouts in each of his 3 full years in the league. Cheevers was 3-times a 1st or 2nd Team WHA All Star who played in both NHL and WHA All Star Games.

The game wear on this size 48 sweater consists of stick and puck marks, goal post paint transfer, material pulls and pilling. The red rubberized Team Canada logos, Canada down the front as well as the player name and numbers remain in flawless condition. On the back is a beautiful black sharpie signature in Cheevers’ own hand. Team Canada wore a couple of sets of jerseys for the inaugural 1976 tournament. Gerry wore this gamer with its crossover collar during the pre-tournament of this historic event. Cheevers sat on the bench as Rogie Vachon’s backup during the main part of the tournament as Team Canada went on to win the Canada Cup in an overtime thriller against the Czechs. Nearly half of Canada’s population was glued to their TV sets, making it the most watched television event in Canadian history to date! This amazing piece of Team Canada history was worn by this 2-time Stanley Cup Champion Hall of Fame goalie and would make a great addition to your Team Canada Wall of Fame, choice!
