1984-85 Mark Napier Edmonton Oilers Game Worn Jersey - Stanley Cup Finals - Video Match - Team Letter
Lot #37

This road blue heavy mesh gamer by Nike was worn by Mark Napier during the 1984-85 regular season and through the Stanley Cup Finals. Napier began his professional career with the Toronto Toros of the WHA, winning the Lou Kaplan Trophy as the leagues top rookie in 1976. He joined the Montreal Canadiens in 1978-79 and won his first Stanley Cup that season, the Habs final of 4 straight during their late 1970’s dynasty. After spending 5+ years in Montreal, Mark was dealt to the North Stars in 1983. He spent parts of 2 years in Minnesota and was moved to the Oilers in late January 1985. What a great move this turned out to be for Napier, as he would have the great fortune to celebrate yet another Stanley Cup only a few months later! Napier was a force in the WHA, scoring 136 goals and 254 points in 237 games. His 60 goals in 1976-77 proved 3rd best in the entire league that season. His stellar play gained him 2 WHA All Star berths in his 3 seasons of participation. Mark twice netted 40 goals in his NHL career, both with Montreal in the early 1980’s.

Napier suited up in 33 regular season games and registered 35 points for Edmonton and then dressed for all 18 playoff contests as the Oilers went on to win their 2nd Stanley Cup. Offered here is Mark’s road jersey from that historic season. The game wear on this sweater is solid and consists of numerous stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, inner pilling and a handful of team-sewn repairs. Shown above is a video match of Napier wearing this exact jersey at the Spectrum in Philadelphia during the 1985 Stanley Cup Finals. Gamers worn during the Stanley Cup Finals are among the crown jewels of our hobby. The 1985 Finals saw the Oilers capture their 2nd consecutive Stanley Cup and further cement their status as an all-time great team. A tremendous opportunity to acquire this 40-goal scorer’s Stanley Cup Finals gamer; Good Luck! This jersey will be accompanied by an Oilers team letter.
