1982-83 George Ferguson Pittsburgh Penguins Game Worn Jersey – Sunday Gold Alternate
Lot #18
This home gold mesh gamer by General Athletic was worn by George Ferguson during the 1982-83 NHL season. The Toronto Maple Leafs selected Ferguson in the 1st round of the 1972 NHL Amateur Draft. This Ontario native made his NHL debut in 1972-73 with the Leafs where he played for 6 seasons. Ferguson joined the Pittsburgh Penguins to start the 1978-79 campaign and spent parts of five years with the club before finishing out his 12-year NHL career with the Minnesota North Stars. In each of George’s four full seasons with the Penguins he netted better than 20 goals.

Light but obvious game wear exists on this 1st set size XXL sweater, which Ferguson wore for a handful of games prior to being dealt to the Minnesota North Stars. The Pens wore these General Athletic all-sewn on Sunday Gold sweaters for less than a month into the 1982-83 before retiring the set. This set has always been highly coveted amongst Penguin’s collectors for both their scarcity as well as featuring a sewn-on tackle twill crest and numbers. A beautiful example from the tail end of Ferguson’s tenure with the Pittsburgh Penguins.
