1984-85 Doug Wickenheiser St. Louis Blues Game Worn Jersey - Honored Number
Lot #38

This home white mesh gamer by Rawlings was worn by Doug Wickenheiser during the 1984-85 NHL season. The Montreal Canadiens selected Wickenheiser with the 1st overall pick in the 1980 NHL Entry Draft. Wickenheiser made his NHL debut with the Habs in 1980-81 and spent parts of 4 seasons with the club before joining the St. Louis Blues midway through the 1983-84 campaign. Doug spent 4 years with the Blues and scored the most famous goal in franchise history when he notched the overtime winner in Game 6 of the 1986 Conference Finals to force a 7th Game for the right to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals. Doug went on to play briefly for the Canucks, Rangers and Capitals before retiring. Tragically, Wick lost his life after a battle with Cancer at just 37-years of age in 1999. His player #14 hangs from the rafters in St. Louis alongside the other legendary Blues.

The game wear on this size 48 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, collar pilling, inner pilling and no less than a dozen team-sewn repairs. Also worthy of mention is evidence of a nameplate reattachment on the upper verso. Beloved by St. Louis fans and type style collectors alike, this one-year all sewn-on style by Rawlings was only worn by the Blues during the 1984-85 season. Offered is a wonderful opportunity to acquire this coveted style of a beloved player whose honored number will forever hang in the rafters in St. Louis.
