1988-89 Tom Karalis Indianapolis Ice Game Worn Jersey
Lot #298

This home white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Tom Karalis during the 1988-89 IHL season. This Montreal born enforcer played his junior hockey in the QMJHL before turning pro and beginning his minor league career in 1985-86. All told this rearguard cleared creases and provided protection for a decade in the AHL, IHL and CHL. In 601 games played, Karalis racked up an impressive 2059 PIMS!

The game wear on this sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, stitch popping at the collar, a fight strap that has lost the battle to salt and rust and inner pilling. Evidence of a plate and number change are evident and worthy of mention to this vintage enforcer’s jersey. Karalis played in just 26 games with Indianapolis, wearing this sweater on home ice and accumulating 132 PIMS!
