1984-85 Tim Kerr Philadelphia Flyers Game Worn Jersey
Lot #15

This road orange mesh gamer by Eagle was worn by Tim Kerr during the 1984-85 NHL season. Kerr was an undrafted winger who made his NHL debut with the Philadelphia Flyers in 1980-81. He would spend 11 years with the Flyers before finishing his career with 1-year stints in New York and Hartford. This Bill Masterton Trophy winner played in a mere 655 games due largely to back injuries during his NHL career but scored a most impressive 370 goals. In a 4-year period, spanning 1983-84 through 1986-87, Kerr posted goal totals of 54, 54, 58 and 58, wow! After playing merely 8 games in 1987-88, Tim rebounded with a 48-goal performance during his injury shortened 69-game 1988-89 season. Kerr, who owns one of the highest goals per game ratios in NHL history, was a 2nd Team NHL All Star in 1987 and played in 3 NHL All Star games during his prolific career. Kerr, who was deadly from the slot, led the NHL in power play goals for 3 consecutive seasons spanning 1984-85 thru 1986-87 and then finished runner up in 1988-89.

The game wear on this size 56 sweater is solid and consists of numerous stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, washed out bloodstains, stitch pops, fine inner pilling and classic Flyers team-sewn hand stitching for means of reinforcement from general trauma. The fight strap has been removed from the inside back player number. The 1984-85 season saw the Flyers, under the guidance of Mike Keenan, the goaltending of Pelle Lindbergh and the scoring of Tim Kerr march all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals. Leading the way was Kerr who scored a career best 98 points on the strength of 54 goals during the regular season. This hulking winger followed that up with 10 goals in 12 playoff games as the Flyers fell just shy of Lord Stanley’s Cup. An incredible offering from one of the Flyers all-time greats that was worn during one of the more exciting seasons in franchise history, choice!
