Lot #31

This Larry Robinson game worn LA Kings jersey was originally sold as part of “The Patrick Roy Collection” which GAMEWORNAUCTIONS.NET exclusively brought to the hobby in our Spring 2017 Auction. Each jersey in the collection was gifted by the players to Patrick Roy during his playing days and each resided in Patrick Roy’s personal collection since leaving the ice. A signed letter from Patrick Roy will accompany your purchase.

This road black knit gamer by CCM was worn by Larry Robinson during the 1990-91 NHL season. The Montreal Canadiens selected Robinson in the 1st round of the 1971 NHL Amateur Draft. Robinson enjoyed a 20-year NHL career and spent the first 17 of those seasons with Montreal, where he won an incredible 7 Stanley Cups. Robinson finished up his career alongside Wayne Gretzky in Los Angeles. Larry was the 1978 Conn Smythe Trophy winner as playoff MVP and also captured two Norris Trophies as the NHL’s best defenseman. Robinson was 6-times a 1st or 2nd Team NHL All Star on defense and was a regular participant in the NHL All Star game throughout his two decade long career, playing in a total of 10 of the annual classics.

Larry also starred when the international spotlight was on, playing for Team Canada in four different Canada Cups, while also taking part in those memorable New Year’s Eve Super Series contests against the Soviets during the Cold War era. He is considered one of the game’s all-time greats and was so recognized in the now revered ‘The Hockey News’ book that ranked the 50 greatest players in NHL history. Larry was honored as the 24th greatest player in NHL history in that publication. Robinson added another Cup to his trophy case as he coached the New Jersey Devils to a Championship in 2000. In 1384 games played, Larry scored 208 goals and added 750 assists for a total of 958 points. His remarkable career also saw Larry partake in 227 playoff games where he added another 144 points.

Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. The game wear on this size 54 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, heavy inner pilling and a team-sewn repair. On the back player number in black sharpie is a beautiful personal message from Larry Robinson to Patrick Roy. These Hall of Fame friends were teammates in Montreal where they celebrated a Stanley Cup Championship together in 1986 during Patrick’s rookie season. This Robinson gamer hails directly from Patrick Roy’s personal collection where it had remained since Larry Robinson presented it to Patrick as a gift during their playing days. A signed LOA by Mr. Roy will accompany your purchase. This well-worn offering is packed with provenance and sports the coveted letter of honor, thus bringing together a pair of all-time Hall of Fame greats, choice!
