1982-83 Brad Park Bruins Game Worn Jersey
Lot #20

This home white heavy mesh gamer by Sandow was worn by Brad Park during the 1982-83 NHL season. Park began his illustrious career in 1968 with the New York Rangers, the team with whom he would spend his first 7+ NHL seasons. A blockbuster deal early during the 1975-76 campaign saw Park along with Jean Ratelle move to the Bruins in exchange for Phil Esposito and Carol Vadnais.

Brad would spend the next 8 seasons on the Bruins blueline before heading to Detroit for a final 2 years. Park’s career has the unique distinction of his teams having gone to the playoffs in all 17 seasons that he took the ice. Brad played in 9 NHL All Star games and was voted 7 times a 1st or 2nd team NHL All Star. He found himself runner up for the Norris Trophy a record 6 times, having had the misfortune of playing in the same era as Bobby Orr and Denis Potvin. Brad was the 1984 recipient of the Bill Masterton trophy for the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey. He was a key figure in Team Canada’s stunning 1972 Summit Series victory against the Russians.

His leadership qualities were never more apparent than with his time served on the Bruins blueline. Deep playoff runs were the norm during the Don Cherry era and back to back to back playoff defeats at the hands of the Montreal Canadiens dynasty will forever sting. His 125 playoff points rank him among the elite all-time for defenseman. Brad Park and the Hockey Hall of Fame go hand in hand.

This heavy Sandow gamer has a black sharpie signature in Park’s hand on the front crest. Blood stains are evident beneath the front collar. There are also some small droplets of blood elsewhere on this gamer. Other noticeable game use includes stick marks, board burns and pilling including some in the collar area of this sweater. As with a vast majority of Bruins gamers from this era there is evidence of another plate once having been on this shirt.
