1980-81 Marcel Dionne Los Angeles Kings Game Worn Jersey
Lot #11
This home gold mesh and knit gamer by Goodman & Sons was worn by Marcel Dionne during the 1980-81 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 array of 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 1980-81 season saw Marcel perform in his prime, while wearing this very sweater. While centering the famed “Triple Crown Line”, Dionne racked up 58 goals and 77 assists for a lofty 135 points. His totals were good for 2nd in NHL goal scoring behind Mike Bossy and 2nd in points behind Wayne Gretzky.

Sewn into the collar of this gamer is the Goodman & Sons tag. The game wear on this size M sweater consists of stick marks, board burns, washed out bloodstains, fine pilling both inside and out along with in excess of a half dozen team-sewn repairs. On the inside crest is a black sharpie signature in Dionne’s own hand. A nice vintage example donned by Dionne during an All Star season, choice!
