1988-89 Marty McSorley Los Angeles Kings Game Worn Jersey 350 PIMS Season
Lot #4
This road black knit gamer by CCM was worn by Marty McSorley during the 1988-89 NHL season. McSorley made his NHL debut in 1983-84 with the Pittsburgh Penguins. This noted tough guy spent 17 seasons running roughshot over the NHL. During that time, Marty partook in 961 regular season contests and amassed 3381 PIMS, good for the 4th highest total of all time. In 115 playoff contests Marty totaled another 374 PIMS. During his career, McSorley went to three Stanley Cup Finals, all while skating alongside Wayne Gretzky. The first two were winning efforts in Edmonton, while the last proved unsuccessful with the Kings. Marty’s career began in Pittsburgh and his stay there was brief, playing parts of two seasons before joining the Oilers in 1985-86. After two seasons in Edmonton, Marty joined the Kings where he played for parts of the next 8 seasons. McSorley also spent time with the Penguins and Rangers before stints with San Jose, Edmonton and finally Boston. McSorley set a single season best of 399 PIMS in 1992-93 with the Kings, one of three years that he totaled better than 300 PIMS. McSorley will forever be looked upon as one of the NHL’s legendary enforcers.

The game wear on this size 54 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, fight abuse, stitch pops, heavy amounts of washed-out bloodstains, exterior pilling and inner pilling. McSorley wore this sweater during his first season with LA where he helped serve as a bodyguard for Wayne Gretzky who was also in his first season with the Kings. Marty played in 66 games, scoring 10 goals, 27 points and racking up what to date was far and away a single season career best of 350 PIMS. A tremendous enforcer’s gamer, covered in blood and worn during McSorley’s first year in LA, a 350 PIMS season, choice!
