1984-85 Marcel Dionne Los Angeles Kings Game Worn Jersey - Photo Matched
Lot #11
This road purple knit gamer by CCM and Adidas was worn by Marcel Dionne during the 1984-85 NHL season. Marcel was selected 2nd overall in the 1971 NHL entry draft by the Detroit Red Wings. After 4 seasons in Detroit, Marcel was traded to the LA Kings where he would carve out his legend for the next 12 seasons, before finishing up his career in the Big Apple.



Dionne’s career statistics are gaudy. His 731 career goals rank him 5th on the all-time list behind only Gretzky, Howe, Jagr and Hull. His 1040 assists rank him 9th in that category, a lone assist in front of Lemieux. His 1771 career points rank him 6th all-time behind Gretzky, Jagr, Messier, Howe, and Francis. Marcel is a four-time 1st or 2nd team NHL All Star. He partook in 8 NHL All Star games. Dionne was a member of Team Canada in the 72 Summit Series, the 1976 and 1981 Canada Cups and several World Championships. He also represented Team NHL against the Russians in the 1979 Challenge Cup. In his career he tabbed 10 different 40-goal seasons, connecting for 50 or more 6 times. His array of hardware is impressive and includes 2 Lady Byng trophies for the combination of sportsmanship and high ability, 2 Lester B. Pearson awards as the NHL’s outstanding player along with 1 Art Ross trophy for leading the NHL in scoring. The Hockey Hall of fame was made to honor players such as Dionne.


Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. Sewn into the collar is the born on date that reads “84-10”. Embroidered to the back hem is the Adidas logo. The game wear on this sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, stitch pops, pulls, gobs of inner pilling and a couple of team-sewn repairs. The original fight strap was cut away and replaced higher up on the back player number. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Dionne wearing this exact jersey during the 1984-85 season. A spectacular well worn photo matched example, complete with the coveted letter of honor and worn during a season that saw Dionne light the lamp 46 times and add 80 assists for an astounding 126 points, choice!
