1980-81 Reggie Leach Flyers Game Worn Jersey
Lot #35

This road orange mesh gamer was worn by Reggie Leach during the 1980-81 NHL season. Reggie enjoyed a 13-year NHL career that saw him play for several teams including the Bruins, Golden Seals, Flyers and Red Wings. He is best known for his time in Philadelphia where he was an integral part of the “Broad Street Bullies” glory days, playing alongside Hall of Famers Bobby Clarke and Bill Barber.

Leach’s 1st two seasons in Philadelphia were two of his finest statistically, both culminating with Stanley Cup Finals appearances where he captured his 1st and only Stanley Cup. In 1974-75 Reggie netted 45 goals while in 1975-76 he scored 60 and also captured the Conn Smythe Trophy as MVP of the playoffs despite losing to the Montreal Canadiens. In 16 playoff games that year Leach scored a resounding 19 goals and 24 total points. Reggie’s 60 goal output made him the 2nd player in NHL history to ever achieve that lofty total. Reggie again turned on the jets in 1979-80 scoring 50 goals while leading his Flyers on an NHL record 35 game unbeaten streak and another trip to the Stanley Cup Finals. It seemed that as went Reggie, so did the Flyers. Reggie played in 2 NHL All Star games and was a 2nd team NHL All Star in 1976. He scored 381 goals during his NHL career.

On the back player number is a blue sharpie signature in Reggie’s own hand. This is symbolic, and matching up with other examples from this era, which leads us to believe it originated from the Philadelphia Flyers charity “Flyers Wives Fight for Lives”. The game use consists of stick marks, board burns and inner pilling. Leach gamers are among the most desirable and hardest to acquire of the “Broad Street Bullies” crowd. Ready to hang alongside your Clarke and Barber gamers.
