1990-91 Larry Murphy Pittsburgh Penguins Game Worn Jersey - Stanley Cup Season - Photo Match
Lot #72

This road black knit gamer by CCM was worn by Larry Murphy during the 1990-91 Stanley Cup winning season. Murphy, who was the 4th overall selection in the 1980 NHL Entry Draft and was later inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2004 in his first year of eligibility, spent 21 seasons on NHL ice. During that time he captured 4 Stanley Cups, 2 each with Pittsburgh and Detroit. He ranks in the top 15 on the NHL’s all-time career assists list. He also ranks 5th on the all-time scoring list for defensemen with over 1200 points. He is 2nd in career NHL games played trailing only Gordie Howe. Larry tallied double-digit goals in an impressive 16 different seasons. His 150+ career playoff points rank him in the top 20 all-time. Murph performed at an elite level for 2 decades, earning 2nd team All Star selections in the 1980’s and 90’s.

On December 11th 1990 the Penguins acquired Murphy from Minnesota to bolster their blueline. Larry appeared in 44 regular season games for the Penguins before embarking on the team’s first successful run at the Stanley Cup. During those memorable playoffs, Murphy netted 5 goals and added 18 helpers for 23-points in 23 games. Offered here is Larry’s road sweater from that first Stanley Cup winning season.

The game wear on this sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, a well salted fight strap and fine inner pilling. Shown above are a couple of photo matches of Murphy wearing this exact jersey during the 1990-91 Stanley Cup winning season. A beautiful photo matched Hall of Fame example from the Pens 1st Stanley Cup winning season.
