This home white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Bobby Smith during the 1990-91 NHL season including the Stanley Cup Finals. The Minnesota North Stars selected Smith with the 1st overall pick in the 1978 NHL Amateur Draft. Smith began his NHL career in 1978-79 with the North Stars and played for the franchise for parts of 9 seasons that encompassed the beginning and end of his illustrious career. In between, Bobby spent parts of 7 seasons with the Montreal Canadiens where he won the only Stanley Cup of his career in 1986. Bobby would appear in the Stanley Cup Finals on four separate occasions, twice each with Minnesota and Montreal. Smith was a four-time NHL All Star who also captured the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s Rookie of the Year in 1979. In 1077 games played, Bobby tallied 357 goals and 1036 points. Bobby also had the good fortune to partake in 184 playoff games during which time he racked up a most impressive 160 points.

Sewn to the right breast of this gamer is the 1991 Stanley Cup Finals patch. The game wear on this 4th set sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, washed out bloodstains, material pulls, heavy inner pilling and 8 team-sewn repairs. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Smith wearing this exact jersey during the 1991 Stanley Cup Finals. Sewn to the inside hem is the official Minnesota North Stars game worn jersey and set tagging. Smith and his North Stars pushed the eventual Stanley Cup Champion Mario Lemieux-led Pittsburgh Penguins to game 6 of the Cup Finals. Bobby partook in 23 playoff games that memorable postseason, scoring 8 goals and 16 points to go along with 56 PIMS to lead his team on their last great run while still in the state of Minnesota. A fantastic well-worn example, complete with the coveted Stanley Cup Finals patch and a terrific photo match that hails from the Minnesota North Stars last-ever trip to the Stanley Cup Finals, choice!
