Lot #15

This road purple and gold mesh gamer by Goodman & Sons was worn by Marcel Dionne during the 1981-82 season. The Detroit Red Wings selected Dionne with the 2nd overall pick in the 1971 NHL Amateur Draft. After playing three seasons of junior hockey with the St. Catharines Black Hawks, Dionne made his NHL debut with Detroit in 1971-72. Following four productive seasons in Detroit, Marcel was traded to the LA Kings where he would carve out his legend over the next 12 seasons prior to finishing up his career with the New York Rangers.

Dionne’s career statistics are indeed gaudy. His 731 career goals rank him 5th on the all-time list behind only Gretzky, Howe, Jagr and Hull. Marcel ranks 10th on the all-time assists list with 1040 while his 1771 career points rank 6th all-time behind Gretzky, Jagr, Messier, Howe, and Francis. Marcel partook in 8 NHL All Star Games and is a four-time 1st or 2nd Team NHL All Star at Center. Dionne was a member of Team Canada in the 72 Summit Series, the 1976 and 1981 Canada Cups and several World Championships. He also represented Team NHL against the Soviets in the 1979 Challenge Cup. Dionne’s career saw him tab 10 different 40-goal seasons, connecting for 50 or more 6 times! His array of hardware is impressive and includes 2 Lady Byng trophies for the combination of sportsmanship and high ability, 2 Lester B. Pearson awards as the NHL’s outstanding player along with 1 Art Ross Trophy for leading the NHL in scoring. The Hockey Hall of Fame was made to honor players such as Dionne.

Sewn into the collar of this gamer is the Goodman & Sons tag. The game wear on this size Medium gamer consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, fine inner pilling and a gaudy sized team-sewn repair on the right sleeve. On the back player number is a beautiful autograph in Dionne’s own hand. Dionne finished in the top 10 of all three major scoring categories in 1981-82 while wearing this sweater during road contests. Marcel lit the lamp 50 times and added 67 assists for an impressive 117 points during the regular season while centering the famed Triple Crown Line. He then added 7 goals in 10 playoff games and helped lead the Kings to a stunning playoff upset over the high-powered Edmonton Oilers in a series that included the Miracle on Manchester. A terrific example worn by this legendary Hall of Famer during the prime of his career.
