Lot #58

This white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Lane MacDonald during the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Alberta. The Calgary Flames selected MacDonald, the son of longtime NHL winger, Lowell, in the 3rd round of the 1985 NHL Entry Draft. MacDonald, a native of Tulsa, OK played his college hockey at Harvard University where he became one of the schools most decorated players of all-time. MacDonald graduated with four Harvard scoring records and remains their all-time leading goal scorer with 111. Lane led the Crimson to three Frozen Four’s and their first and only NCAA Championship in 1989. MacDonald was a two-time All American while also being named NCAA All-Tournament Team in 1989. Lane’s esteemed collegiate accomplishments were further acknowledged with the 1989 Hobey Baker Award. MacDonald represented team USA in several international competitions, including the 1988 Olympics where he led the team with 6 goals in 6 games, including a pair of goals against the Soviets. MacDonald was elected to the US Hockey Hall of Fame in 2005.

Sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the sponsorship patch. Sewn into the collar is the chain stitched “88”. The game wear on this sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, material pulls, fine inner pilling and a few team-sewn repairs. A terrific example that would make for a great addition to any Team USA collection of gamers.
