1980-81 Pat Ribble Washington Capitals Pre-Season Game Worn Jersey
Lot #76

This red heavy knit gamer by Sandow SK was worn by Pat Ribble during the 1980 and or 1981 pre-seasons. The Atlanta Flames and Indianapolis Racers selected Ribble in the 1974 NHL and WHA Amateur Drafts. Ribble made his professional debut in the NHL in 1975-76 with the Atlanta Flames where he played for four seasons. This defenseman next spent two partial seasons with the Chicago Blackhawks before playing briefly for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Pat joined the Washington Capitals in 1979-80 and spent parts of three seasons in the nations capitol before finishing up his 8-year NHL career with the Calgary Flames.

During the 1980 and 1981 pre-seasons, the Capitals traveled to Sweden to compete in the Dagens Nyheter Cup, a tournament that Washington won in 1980. According to the Capitals equipment manager, Washington wore these Sandow SK sweaters during those tournaments. Offered here is Ribble’s sweater from the aforementioned set that is now approaching being 40 years removed from the ice. Penned in the collar of this lightly worn sweater is the size 56. The game worn jerseys of this colorful and scrappy fan favorite have been virtually non-existent in the hobby over the years; with this being the first we’ve had the pleasure to bring to market.
