1982-83 Walt McKechnie Red Wings Game Worn Jersey
Lot #48

This home white knit gamer by Maska was worn by Walt McKechnie during the 1982-83 NHL season. Walt was a 16 year veteran of the NHL wars, playing for a number of different teams beginning in the post expansion year of 1967-68 with the Minnesota North Stars. He put a wrap on his 200+ goal & 600+ point career with 2 seasons in the Motor City, the last of which came while wearing this very sweater.

Sewn to the inside collar is the Maska and Eastside Sporting Goods tagging. The game wear consists of stick marks, board burns, board paint transfer, exterior pilling, heavy inner pilling, un-repaired burn holes and a team-sewn repair. These attractive Maska gamers, with the fancy script style numbers, are now about 3 decades old. The Red Wings wore this 1-year style during only the 1982-83 season which has kept them popular among collectors. Nice example worn by this veteran during his last NHL season.
