1989-90 Marty McSorley Los Angeles Kings Game Worn Jersey - Video Match - Team Letter
Lot #539

This home white knit gamer by CCM was worn by Marty McSorley during the 1989-90 NHL season. McSorley spent 17 seasons running roughshot over the NHL. During that time, Marty partook in 961 regular season contests that saw him amass 3381 PIMS, good for 4th best all time, and placing him as one of only 9 men in the history of the sport to have accomplished the feat. In 115 playoff contests McSorley totaled another 374 PIMS.

During his career, McSorley went to 3 Stanley Cup Finals, all while skating alongside Wayne Gretzky. The first two were winning efforts in Edmonton, while the last was unsuccessful with the Kings in 1993. Marty’s career began in Pittsburgh and his stay there was brief, playing parts of 2 seasons before joining the Oilers in 1985-86. After 2 seasons in Edmonton, Marty joined the Kings where he played for parts of the next 8 seasons. McSorley next spent 2 years with San Jose, another with Edmonton and then a final season with the Boston Bruins before announcing his retirement.

The 1989-90 season was one of McSorley’s finest. He scored a career best 15 goals and amassed 322 PIMS during that campaign. It was one of only 3 times that Marty surpassed the 300 PIMS plateu during his career.

We had the pleasure of selling this sweater back in the 1990’s and always wondered if we’d ever have the chance to handle it again. This is one of the all-time great fighter jerseys in the hobby. This incredible gamer has been highly customized with panels of up to 9 inches in width having been added that span from the hem all the way to the wrists. The game wear on this sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, un-repaired burn holes, loads of washed out bloodstains and heavy inner pilling. Also worthy of mention are stitch pops around the collar and a fight strap that has lost the battle to salt and rust. Shown above are some great video highlights of Marty wearing this highly customized home white jersey during the 89-90 season. An amazing jersey that will sit proudly front and center in any fight collectors collection, choice! This jersey will be accompanied by a Kings team letter.
