1981-82 Gerry Minor Vancouver Canucks Stanley Cup Finals Game Worn Jersey
Lot #46

This road black mesh gamer by Sandow SK was worn by Gerry Minor during the 1981-82 NHL regular season and playoffs, including the Stanley Cup Finals. The Vancouver Canucks selected Minor in the 6th round of the 1978 NHL Amateur Draft. This Center iceman made his NHL debut in 1979-80 with the Canucks. Minor spent his entire 5-year NHL career playing in Vancouver, where he was part of the beloved 1981-82 team that trekked to the Stanley Cup Finals only to fall to the New York Islanders Dynasty.

The game wear on this vintage sweater consists of stick and slash marks, a number of board burns, board paint transfer and inner pilling. A custom fight strap has been added and is affixed with heavy stitching to the standard loop style fight strap between the back player numbers. Shown above are some beautiful photos of Minor wearing this jersey in the official team photo and during the 1982 Stanley Cup Finals on Long Island. This jersey is a one-year style, worn by Vancouver during their improbable Stanley Cup Finals run in 1981-82, the first in franchise history! Coveted by Canucks fans and type style collectors alike, these heat pressed heavyweight V-Style jerseys with sewn on lettering don’t often show up in the hobby. This is in fact the first example that we’ve ever had the pleasure to bring to Auction. This example has held up quite well, having withstood the battles of the Stanley Cup Playoffs and remains in fantastic condition. This fresh to the hobby photo matched offering shows nice game use, remains in wonderful condition and was worn during the season that saw Vancouver make their first ever Stanley Cup Finals appearance!
