Lot #7
This road orange mesh gamer by Goodman & Sons was worn by Paul Holmgren during the 1979-80 NHL season, playoffs and Stanley Cup Finals. The Philadelphia Flyers selected Holmgren in the 6th round of the 1975 NHL Amateur Draft. After attending the University of Minnesota, this St. Paul, MN native began his professional career in the WHA with the hometown Fighting Saints. After spending just a year in the WHA, Holmgren joined the Philadelphia Flyers where he carved out his legend as one of the toughest customers of his era. This power forward netted 144 goals and 323 points while amassing 1684 PIMS in merely 527 NHL games played. Following parts of 9 seasons with the Flyers, Holmgren returned home and spent parts of two seasons with the Minnesota North Stars before retiring.



The game wear on this size 52 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, stitch pops, fine pilling both inside and out as well as nearly 20 team-sewn repairs! Shown above are some beautiful photo matches of Holmgren wearing this exact jersey during the 1980 Stanley Cup Finals.


The 1979-80 season was a special year for the Flyers as they ran off a record setting 35-game unbeaten streak and trekked all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals. Holmgren played a big role in Philadelphia’s success as he scored a career best 30-goals and 65-points while ringing up 267 PIMS. Paul was even better in the playoffs as he lit the lamp 10 times and added 10 helpers for 20 points and amassed 47 PIMS in 18 playoff games! Holmgren gamers have been an exceedingly difficult get for Flyers collectors, with this example being just the 2nd that we’ve had the pleasure to handle. This battered example was worn during the Flyers record setting 35-game unbeaten streak and is photo matched to the 1980 Stanley Cup Finals. Offered is an incredible opportunity to acquire what is likely to be the finest Holmgren gamer in the hobby, choice!
