1989-90 Mick Vukota New York Islanders Game Worn Jersey The Terrence Murphy Collection Joe Murphy Letter
Lot #87

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 Mick Vukota during the 1989-90 NHL season. After battling his way through junior hockey in the WHL, Vukota made his NHL debut in 1987-88 with the New York Islanders. Mick would spend the first 10 years of his 11-year NHL career with the Islanders where he served as the team’s enforcer. Vukota finished up his career with stops in Tampa Bay and Montreal. This enforcer took on all comers and ended his career with a resounding 2071 PIMS in just 574 games played! His single season best PIMS total came in 1991-92 when he tallied 293 PIMS.

The fight strap on this gamer has been customized for Vukota by the team. The game wear on this 3rd set size 54 sweater is very light with some notable stretching and stitch popping at the rear collar, obviously from a late season skirmish. This jersey was ready to go into further battle with Mick during the much anticipated 1990 Islanders-Rangers playoff series, however, Vukota was involved in the Game 1 brawl at MSG that saw him receive 17 PIMS, a game-misconduct and an additional 10-game suspension that took him out of commission for the remainder of the playoffs. A lightly worn fresh to the hobby customized enforcer’s gamer that comes directly from the personal collection of Terrence Murphy.
