Description
1981-82 Rick Zombo University of North Dakota Game Worn Jersey - National Championship Season
Lot #260
This home white mesh gamer was worn by Rick Zombo during the 1981-82 WCHA season. The Detroit Red Wings selected Zombo in the 8th round of the 1981 NHL Entry Draft. This Des Plaines, IL native spent 3 years with the Fighting Sioux before embarking on a 12-year NHL career. During that time Rick played for the Red Wings for parts of 8 seasons, the Blues for parts of 4 more and then spent a final year with the Boston Bruins.

The game wear on this vintage UND sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, un-repaired burn holes, fine inner pilling, exterior pilling and a couple of handfuls of some amazing team-sewn repair work. A treat also worthy of mention is the nameplate, an item often lost to history on vintage Fighting Sioux game jerseys from this era. Zombo wore this sweater as a freshman during what turned out to be a National Championship season for North Dakota. An incredible collegiate offering, worn by this veteran NHL defenseman during his freshman year at North Dakota as he and his Fighting Sioux teammates captured the 1982 National Championship, choice!
