Description
1988-89 Mark Laforest Philadelphia Flyers Game Worn Jersey
Lot #380
This home white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Mark Laforest during the 1988-89 NHL season. Laforest is a two-time winner of the Baz Bastien Memorial Award, given to the AHL’s best goalie. He won those awards in 1987 with the Adirondack Red Wings and in 1991 with the Binghamton Rangers. Laforest spent parts of 6 seasons in the NHL, representing the likes of the Detroit Red Wings, the Philadelphia Flyers, the Ottawa Senators and the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Offered here is Laforest’s home jersey from his final year with the Flyers. He played in 17 games that year, serving as Ron Hextall’s backup between the pipes. The sleeves on this gamer have been custom shortened and elasticized. The game wear is on the lighter side, as would be expected, and consists of stick and puck marks, goal post paint transfer and inner pilling. A nice example of one of the tougher Flyers goalies to acquire a gamer from due to his short stay with the Flyers back in the 1980’s.
