This road blue air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Ken Baumgartner during the 1989-90 NHL season. The Buffalo Sabres selected Baumgartner in the 12th round of the 1985 NHL Entry Draft. This Flin Flon, MAN native made his NHL debut in 1987-88 with the Los Angeles Kings where he played for parts of three seasons before being dealt to the New York Islanders in the Fall of 1989. This enforcer spent parts of three seasons on Long Island before joining the Leafs during the latter part of the 1991-92 campaign. Baumgartner played for Toronto for parts of five years before finishing up his NHL career with stops in Anaheim and Boston. Over the course of 12 seasons, this legendary tough guy played in 696 games and amassed a most impressive 2242 PIMS! His single season career best came in 1988-89 with the Kings where in just 49 games Kenny registered a resounding 286 PIMS!

The fight strap on this gamer has been customized for Baumgartner by the team. The game wear on this 2nd set size 54 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes and trauma, material pulls, fine inner pilling and fight abuse to the torn rear collar extending down to the plate with team-sewn repair work in tow. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Baumgartner wearing this exact jersey during the 1989-90 season. Baumgartner appeared in 57 games and racked up 221 PIMS during his first season with the Islanders while wearing this jersey. A fantastic fresh to the hobby customized and photo matched enforcer’s gamer that comes directly from the personal collection of Terrence Murphy.
