1978-79 Randy Carlyle Penguins Game Worn Jersey - Photo Matched
Lot #5

This road blue mesh gamer by Stall and Dean was worn by Randy Carlyle during the 1978-79 NHL season. Carlyle was the 2nd round selection of the Toronto Maple Leafs back in 1976. After playing parts of 2 seasons with the Leafs, Carlyle found a home with the Pittsburgh Penguins where he would represent the Steel City for the next 6 seasons. Randy’s last stop in the NHL was in Winnipeg, where he played for parts of 10 years before retiring following the 1992-93 campaign.

Carlyle enjoyed a 17-year career that saw him play in more than 1000 games and score nearly 650 points. In 1980-81, Carlyle attained his greatest individual honor by capturing the Norris Trophy as the NHL’s best defenseman. Since leaving the league as a player, Randy has taken up coaching and is now the head man behind the bench in Anaheim.

This spectacular blue Penguin’s gamer was worn by Carlyle in his first season with the Pittsburgh franchise. Sewn perfectly in the collar are the Stall and Dean, wash, size and year tags. The original nameplate and tackle twill crest are certainly a treat. The fragile multi tiered crest became intimate with the trainer’s needle and thread, a commonality to this season’s gamers. The game use is solid consisting of stick marks, board burns, board paint transfer, fine pilling both inside and out and all told in excess of a dozen team-sewn repairs. Shown above is a photo-match of Carlyle wearing this exact jersey on the cover of a GOAL magazine that is dated 1979. It would be easy to argue that this is the finest Carlyle gamer in the entire hobby!
