1981-82 Darryl Sittler Philadelphia Flyers Game Worn Jersey - Photo Match
Lot #34
This home white mesh gamer by Sandow SK was worn by Darryl Sittler during the 1981-82 NHL season. The Toronto Maple Leafs selected Sittler with the 8th overall pick in the 1970 NHL Amateur Draft. Sittler made his NHL debut with the Leafs in 1970-71 and spent parts of 12 seasons representing the franchise that drafted him. During the 1981-82 season, Sittler joined the Philadelphia Flyers where he spent three years before wrapping up his career with the Detroit Red Wings. In a Hall of Fame career that spanned 15 seasons, this Center scored 484 Goals, added 637 Assists and 1121 Points. Darryl was the first Leafs player to reach 100-points in a season in 1975-76, a year that saw him set the NHL mark with 10-points in a single game. Later that season, Sittler scored 5-goals in a playoff game against Philadelphia and then netted the overtime winner in the 1976 Canada Cup finale to give Team Canada the victory. Sittler earned 2nd Team NHL All Star honors in 1978 and was a 4-time NHL All Star who was inducted to the Hall of Fame in 1989.

The game wear on this size XL sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, plenty of board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes and inner pilling. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Sittler wearing this exact jersey during the 1981-82 season. The team removed the fight strap from the rear player number and there is some team-sewn repair work left in its absence. Also worthy of mention is the nameplate on the upper verso, which is not original to the jersey. On the back player number is a beautiful black sharpie signature in Sittler’s own hand. Darryl played in 35 games for the Flyers upon his arrival in the second half of the 1981-82 season, wearing this number 9 jersey on home ice. He wore the player number 9 during his first season with Philly before switching to number 27 the following year. Darryl lit the lamp 14 times and added 18 assists for 32 points while also accumulating 50 PIMS in those 35 games during his first season with the Flyers. A terrific well-worn photo matched gamer dating to this Hall of Famers arrival in Philadelphia.
