1977-78 J.C. Tremblay WHA Quebec Nordiques Game Worn Jersey
Lot #252
This road blue mesh gamer was worn by All Star defenseman Jean-Claude Tremblay during the 1977-78 WHA seasons. Tremblay began his lengthy 20-year professional career during the 1959-60 NHL season as the Montreal Canadiens were winning their record 5th straight Stanley Cup. He would spend 13 years in the NHL representing the Canadiens and winning an impressive 6 Stanley Cup titles during that span. When the 1972-73 season began, JC found himself in the WHA, as an original member of the Quebec Nordiques where he was recognized as the team’s biggest star. JC remained in the WHA thru its entire 7-year existence, all with the Quebec franchise. During his NHL career, Tremblay played in 7 NHL All Star games and was twice named a 1st or 2nd Team NHL All Star. His WHA resume is no less impressive. Considered among the finest defenseman in the fledgling leagues history, JC was twice awarded the Dennis Murphy Trophy as the WHA’s outstanding defenseman. He was 4 times a 1st or 2nd Team WHA All Star and partook in 6 WHA All Star games! JC also represented Team Canada’s WHA All Stars during their 8-game Summit Series against the Russians in 1974. In a memorable poll done some years ago that ranked the 50 greatest players in WHA history, J.C. Tremblay was ranked 4th on that all-time list!

The game wear on this vintage WHA sweater is solid and consists of stick marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, stitch pops and heavy pilling running from the belly to the rear of the left hip, the wrist areas and of course the inside. A tremendous offering that was donned by the man ranked 4th best in WHA history, choice!
