Description
1984-85 Charlie Simmer Kings Game Worn Jersey
Lot #33

This road purple and gold knit gamer by CCM and Adidas was worn by Charlie Simmer during the 1984-85 NHL season. Simmer began his career with the California Seals in 1974-75. After 2 years with the Seals and another with the Barons, Charlie joined the Kings where he would form the LW side of the famed Triple Crown Line. Skating alongside Marcel Dionne and Dave Taylor did wonders for Simmer’s game. He became a scoring machine, averaging well in excess of a point per game during his 7+ seasons with the Kings. In 1980-81 Simmer put forth a career year with 56 goals and 105 points in 65 games of action. Simmer next moved onto Boston where he skated for 3 years before a final season with the Penguins in 1987-88. Simmer twice netted 50-goals and ended his 712 game career with 342 goals and 711 points. He was the 1986 recipient of the Bill Masterton Trophy, was twice a 1st Team NHL All Star and played in 2 NHL All Star games.

Worn during Simmer’s last season with the Kings that saw him play just 5 regular season games. The game wear on this jersey is solid consisting of stick marks, board burns, board paint transfer and un-repaired burn holes. Worthy of mention is a nickel sized hole left from the removal of the original fight strap which surprisingly was left un-repaired when a different fight strap was added and sewn to the back player number. On the front hem is a black sharpie signature in Charlie’s own hand.
