1984-85 Dwight Schofield St. Louis Blues Game Worn Jersey
Lot #700

GAMEWORNAUCTIONS.NET is pleased to bring this exciting collection of game worn enforcers and tough guys to the hobby exclusively thru our Fall 2017 Auction. These 14 NHL 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, some which are being offered at auction for the first time!

This home white mesh gamer by Rawlings was worn by Dwight Schofield during the 1984-85 NHL season. The Detroit Red Wings selected Schofield in the 5th round of the 1976 NHL Amateur Draft. This native of Waltham, MA began his NHL career with the Wings in 1976-77. Schofield spent parts of 7 years in the NHL representing the Detroit Red Wings, Montreal Canadiens, St. Louis Blues, Washington Capitals, Pittsburgh Penguins and the Winnipeg Jets. In between his NHL stops, this enforcer ran roughshot over the minor leagues, amassing lofty PIM totals along the way. In 211 NHL games, Dwight racked up an impressive 631 PIMS, many of them the 5-minute major variety.

The game wear on this size 52 sweater is tremendous and consists of stick marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, washed out bloodstains, inner pilling as well as plenty of fight abuse and team-sewn repair work. Abuse and repair work most worthy of mention include a torn and repaired front collar; a heavily used and abused fight strap with archaic brown Velcro and heavy repair work fortifying it between the back numbers; the front left breast has been torn and heavily repaired in the shape of a “C”; the upper left side of the back player number “2” has been repaired while the lower portion of the “S” in Blues has also been heavily reinforced; the left sleeve is littered with repairs backed with yellow, blue and white material remnants. Also worthy of mention is the reattachment of the nameplate, a commonality with this set. Beloved by St. Louis fans and type style collectors alike, this one-year all sewn-on style by Rawlings was worn by the Blues during the 1984-85 season. This is a tremendous example of an old-school enforcers game worn jersey!
