1981-83 Bobby Smith Minnesota North Stars Game Worn Jersey
Lot #21

This road green mesh gamer by Steichens was worn by Bobby Smith during the 1981-82 and or the 1982-83 NHL season. The Minnesota North Stars selected Smith with the 1st overall pick in the 1978 NHL Amateur Draft. Smith began his NHL career in 1978-79 with the North Stars and played for the franchise for parts of 9 seasons that encompassed the beginning and end of his illustrious career. In between, Bobby spent parts of 7 seasons with the Montreal Canadiens where he won the only Stanley Cup of his career in four separate trips to the Cup Finals. Smith was a 4-time NHL All Star who also captured the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s Rookie of the Year in 1979. In 1077 games played, Bobby tallied 357 goals and 1036 points. Bobby also had the good fortune to partake in 184 playoff games during which time he racked up a most impressive 160 points.

Sewn into the collar of this gamer are the manufacturers, size and wash tags. The game wear on this size 56 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, a popped and repaired front collar, heavy inner pilling and a couple of handfuls of team-sewn repairs. Shown above are a couple of photos of Smith wearing this lesser-used collar variation of green, white and yellow trim during the 1981-82 and 1982-83 seasons. Bobby netted a career best 43 goals and 114 points in 1981-82, good for top 10 in NHL scoring and assists while earning himself another NHL All Star appearance. An amazing North Stars gamer from the prime of this All Star’s illustrious career.
