1986-87 Bob Bourne Los Angeles Kings Game Worn Jersey – “20-year Anniversary”
Lot #60

This home gold knit gamer by CCM was worn by Bob Bourne during the 1986-87 NHL season. The KC Scouts selected Bourne in the 3rd round of the 1974 NHL Amateur Draft. A trade sent Bourne to the Islanders where he began his NHL career as a rookie in 1974-75. It was an important season in franchise history as the Islanders surged to game 7 of the Semi Finals where they lost on Spectrum ice to the defending Stanley Cup champion Flyers. Bobby would become an integral part of the team’s nucleus that would go onto dynasty status in the years to come. Bourne remained an Islander for a dozen seasons and won 4 Stanley Cups before joining the Kings for 2 more years prior to announcing his retirement. Bobby was 3-times a 30-goal scorer for New York, although his biggest contributions were felt in the playoffs during the dynasty years. During the four consecutive Stanley Cup wining seasons in the 1980’s, Bourne averaged a point per game, scoring 74 points in 74 games including many clutch goals. Despite being one of the taller players in the league, Bourne possessed lightning fast speed and he used it to perfection as one of the NHL’s best penalty killers, a constant breakaway threat and a tremendous defensive forward. Bobby represented Team Canada in the Canada Cup and was also an NHL All Star.

Sewn to the left shoulder of this gamer is the Los Angeles Kings 20-year anniversary patch. Sewn into the collar of this gamer is the born on tag “86-01”. The game wear on this sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, collar pilling, inner pilling and a couple of team-sewn repairs. A terrific patched example worn by this four-time Stanley Cup Champion during his first season with the LA Kings.
