Lot #43

This fresh to the hobby example comes directly from the personal collection of longtime New York Islanders employee Terrence Murphy. Terry worked for the New York Islanders from 1983 through 1992, beginning as their stick boy until being promoted to Assistant Equipment Manager in 1988. A letter of provenance signed by Mr. Murphy’s son will accompany your purchase. These exciting items are being offered to the hobby for the first time via the Fall 2020 Auction, exclusively at GAMEWORNAUCTIONS.NET.

This home white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Glenn Healy during the 1989-90 NHL season. After playing his college hockey at Western Michigan University, this Ajax, ONT native made his NHL debut in 1985-86 with the Los Angeles Kings. Glenn played in LA for three seasons before joining the New York Islanders for the 1989-90 campaign. Healy tended goal for four seasons on Long Island and then moved to the crosstown rival New York Rangers for another four seasons. Healy wrapped up his 15-year NHL career after spending a final four seasons with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Healy led the Islanders to a deep playoff run that took them to the cusp of the Finals in 1993 and then won a Stanley Cup the following season with the New York Rangers.

The game wear on this 3rd set size 56 sweater consists of stick and puck marks, some heavy exterior pilling and inner pilling. Shown above are a couple of beautiful photo matches of Healy wearing this exact jersey during Game 3 of the 1989-90 Stanley Cup Playoffs against the New York Rangers, a double overtime thriller won by the Islanders. Healy wore this sweater at the Nassau Coliseum during his first season on Long Island. A surprisingly difficult get for collectors through the years, this is the first Healy Islanders jersey that we’ve ever had the pleasure to bring to auction. A terrific fresh to the hobby photo matched example that comes directly from the personal collection of Terrence Murphy.
