GAMEWORNAUCTIONS.NET is pleased to bring this exciting collection of game worn enforcers, tough guys and instigators to the hobby exclusively thru our Spring 2019 Auction. These 10 NHL, WHA and minor league game worn jerseys have been held in a private collection since being purchased beginning nearly 20 years ago and have been out of hobby circulation ever since. Included in this group of legendary tough guys are some extremely difficult to find players and styles, most which are being offered at auction for the first time!

This home white mesh gamer by Sandow SK was worn by Greg Adams during the 1982-83 NHL season. Adams made his NHL debut with the Philadelphia Flyers in 1980-81. After a couple of seasons in Philly, Adams spent a season with the Hartford Whalers before joining the Washington Capitals, his home for five years. Adams wrapped up his NHL career with stops in Edmonton, Vancouver, Quebec and Detroit. All told this tough guy spent 10 years in the NHL and racked up an impressive 1173 PIMS in 545 games played.

The game wear on this sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, a custom skate lace fight strap, washed out bloodstains and inner pilling. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Adams wearing this exact jersey during the 1982-83 season. Adams lit the lamp 10 times and added 13 assists for 23 points to go along with a career best 216 PIMS while wearing this sweater during his only season with the Whalers. A terrific vintage photo matched offering that has been out of hobby circulation for quite some time.
