1977-78 Marcel Dionne Kings Game Worn Jersey - Photo Match
Lot #2

This road purple heavy mesh gamer by Goodman & Sons was worn by Marcel Dionne during the 1977-78 NHL season. Marcel was selected 2nd overall in the 1971 NHL entry draft by the Detroit Red Wings. After 4 seasons in Detroit, Marcel was traded to the LA Kings where he would carve out his legend for the next 12 seasons, before finishing up his career in the Big Apple.

Dionne’s career statistics are gaudy. His 731 career goals rank him 4th on the all-time list behind only Gretzky, Howe and Hull. His 1040 assists rank him 9th in that category, a lone assist in front of Lemieux. His 1771 career points rank him 5th all-time behind Gretzky, Messier, Howe, and Francis. Marcel is a four-time 1st or 2nd team NHL All Star. He partook in 8 NHL All Star games. Dionne was a member of Team Canada in the 72 Summit Series, the 1976 and 1981 Canada Cups and several World Championships. He also represented Team NHL against the Russians in the 1979 Challenge Cup. In his career he tabbed 10 different 40-goal seasons, connecting for 50 or more 6 times. His hardware is impressive and includes (2) Lady Byng trophies for the combination of sportsmanship and high ability, (2) Lester B. Pearson awards as the NHL’s outstanding player along with (1) Art Ross trophy for leading the NHL in scoring. The Hockey Hall of Fame was made to honor players such as Dionne.

The game wear on this sweater consists of stick marks, board burns, un-repaired burn holes and inner pilling. On the back player number is a black sharpie signature in Dionne’s own hand. Shown above are a couple of beautiful photo matches showing Dionne wearing this exact jersey during the 1977-78 season. A wonderful vintage example of this upper-echelon Hall of Famer.
