Lot #21

This black knit gamer by CCM and Steichens was worn by Basil McRae during the 1991-92 NHL season. The Quebec Nordiques selected McRae in the 5th round of the 1980 NHL Entry Draft. McRae began his NHL career with the Nordiques in 1981-82. Basil ran roughshod over the NHL while representing the Quebec Nordiques, Toronto Maple Leafs, Detroit Red Wings, Minnesota North Stars, Tampa Bay Lightning, St. Louis Blues and the Chicago Blackhawks.

All told McRae spent 15 seasons in the NHL. Despite appearing in only 576 games during that span, McRae amassed 2453 PIMS, one of the all-time greatest per game averages the NHL has ever seen. His single season best came in 1987-88 with the North Stars when he rang up 378 PIMS. He followed that up the next two seasons with 365 PIMS and 351 PIMS, wow! Pop in any great NHL fight tape from Basil’s era and you’re sure to witness plenty of footage featuring this legendary pugilist.

Proudly affixed to the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. Sewn to the left shoulder is the Minnesota North Stars 25-year anniversary patch. Sewn to the right breast is the NHL’s 75-year anniversary patch. The sleeves on this gamer have been custom shortened for McRae by the team.

The game wear on this 1st set size 54 sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, stitch pops, inner pilling and a couple of handfuls of team-sewn repairs. Fight abuse is abundant with washed out bloodstains, a torn and unrepaired sleeve cuff and a heavily customized fight strap. Sewn to the inside hem is the official Minnesota North Stars game worn jersey and set tagging. A tremendous fight abused multi-patched enforcers gamer, complete with customizations and the coveted letter of honor and worn by one of the NHL’s all-time great pugilists during his last season with the North Stars.
