1988-89 Dale Hawerchuk Winnipeg Jets Game Worn Jersey - Photo Match
Lot #27
This home white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Dale Hawerchuk during the 1988-89 NHL season. The Winnipeg Jets selected Hawerchuk with the 1st overall pick in the 1981 NHL Entry Draft. Hawerchuk burst onto the scene and as a rookie won the Calder Trophy on the strength of 45 goals and 103 points. A Hall of Fame career was underway and flourished as a member of the Jets where he played for the first 9 years of his 16-year NHL career. Dale spent his next 5 seasons in Buffalo and then played briefly with the Blues and Flyers before retiring. When all was said and done, Hawerchuk had registered 518 goals and 1409 points in 1188 games played. Hawerchuk represented team Canada in 2 Canada Cups, played in Rendezvous ’87, was a 5-time NHL All Star and was a 2nd team NHL All Star in 1985.

Sewn proudly to the left breast of this gamer is the Captain’s “C”. The game wear on this vintage sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired holes, fine inner pilling and a team-sewn repair. On the back just above the player number is a beautiful black sharpie signature in Hawerchuk’s own hand. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Hawerchuk wearing this exact jersey during the 1988-89 season. Hawerchuk netted his last 40-goal season in 1988-89 as he struck for 41 goals and 96 points over the course of 75 games while wearing this jersey on home ice in front of the Winnipeg fans. A terrific photo matched Captain’s gamer that will surely boost any Hall of Fame or 500-Goal Scorer’s collection, choice!
