1980 Butch Goring NHL All Star Game Worn Jersey - Photo Match - The Dave Goring Collection Dave Goring Letter
Lot #31
It is with great pleasure that we bring to the hobby the Dave Goring Collection, featuring three Butch Goring game worn jerseys. Butch gifted these game worn jerseys to his brother Dave during his playing days. They have been incredibly preserved since leaving the ice some 30+ years ago and are being offered to the hobby for the very first time! A letter from Dave Goring will accompany your purchase.



This white mesh gamer by Cosby was worn by Butch Goring during the 1980 NHL All Star Game. The Los Angeles Kings selected Goring in the 5th round of the 1969 NHL Amateur Draft. Goring joined the Kings in 1969-70 and remained with the franchise for 11 seasons. While with LA, Butch scored 30-goals on 4 different occasions and won the 1978 Bill Masterton and Lady Byng Trophies. The Kings dealt Butch to the New York Islanders at the deadline in 1979-80. This trade proved to be one of the most significant deals in hockey history.



It was Goring’s arrival in New York that literally helped kick start the Islanders dynasty. Goring and the Islanders went to the Stanley Cup Finals for five consecutive years after his arrival and they walked away with 4 straight Stanley Cups. Butch was named the winner of the Conn Smythe Trophy in 1981 as playoff MVP. Midway thru the 1984-85 campaign, Goring was dealt to the Boston Bruins where he spent a half season before announcing his retirement. During his 16-year NHL career, this NHL All Star scored 375 goals and 888 points. Goring was a deadly penalty killer who ranked in the top 10 in shorthanded goals 9 different seasons. His 40 career shorthanded goals rank him 5th on the NHL’s all-time list.



Sewn into the collar of this gamer are the Cosby, wash and size tagging. The game wear on this size 52 sweater consists of stick and slash marks and inner pilling. Shown above are some beautiful photo matches of Goring wearing this exact jersey during the 1980 All Star Game. Butch played in just one NHL All Star Game during his entire career therefore making this his one and only NHL All Star Game jersey. A terrific photo matched offering from the most important season of Goring’s career and hailing directly from the collection of Dave Goring, Butch’s brother, who has treasured it since receiving it from Butch back in 1980, choice!
