1981-82 Dave Semenko Edmonton Oilers Game Worn Jersey - "1981 Year of Disabled Persons" - Photo Match - Video Match
Lot #356

This road blue heavy mesh gamer by Sandow SK was worn by Dave Semenko during the 1981-82 NHL season. Semenko began his career with the Edmonton Oilers in 1977-78 in the WHA. After 2 years in the WHA, Semenko and his Oilers joined the NHL in the 1979-80 expansion. He would suit up for the NHL Oilers for parts of 8 seasons before brief stays in Hartford and Toronto. Proudly known as Wayne Gretzky’s on ice bodyguard, Semenko provided protection and space for the greatest player to ever lace up the skates. Semenko won 2 Stanley Cups in 3 Finals appearances. In 575 NHL games, Semenko compiled 1175 PIMS. In 73 playoff contests he compiled another 208 PIMS, proving all the while that he would drop em’ with anyone.

Sewn to the right shoulder of this gamer is the coveted 1981 International Year of Disabled Persons patch. The game wear on this heavy Sandow SK mesh is solid consisting of numerous stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, inner pilling and 3 team-sewn repairs. Shown above are some beautiful photo and video matches of Semenko wearing this exact jersey during the 1981-82 season. Semenko, while playing in only 59 games, set a career high with 194 PIMS in 1981-82 while wearing this sweater. Dave also scored a career best 12 goals and recorded 24 points during the 1981-82 campaign. There is little doubt that Semenko let plenty of haymakers fly while wearing this sweater. Tremendous vintage example worn by this revered pugilist!
