1991-92 Joe Kocur Rangers Game Worn Jersey - Turn Back The Clock
Lot #170

This stunning blue Turn Back The Clock knit gamer by CCM and Cosby was worn by Joe Kocur during the 1991-92 NHL season. After being drafted in 1983, Kocur made his debut with Detroit during the 1984-85 season, playing an abbreviated 17 game schedule. In 1985-86 Joe dressed for only 59 games but made the league take notice as he racked up 377 PIMS! This was the first of 6 consecutive seasons that Joey would rack up better than 200 PIMS per. He and his Bash Bros. teammate Bob Probert ran roughshot over the league, taking no prisoners. In 1991, Kocur was dealt to the Rangers where he would spend his next 5 years. He did temper the bad boy act a bit on Broadway. After his stay with New York it was off to Vancouver for 7 games and then back to Detroit where Joe played his final 3 seasons. In 15 seasons Kocur racked up 2519 PIMS, placing him top-20 all-time. He will long be remembered as one of the fiercest fighters of his generation.

The 1991-92 season saw each of the original 6 teams sparingly don their stunning Turn Back The Clock jerseys as the NHL celebrated 75 years of hockey.
Sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the 75-year NHL patch. This long bygone style is a throwback to the NHL’s original 6 origins. Despite the lack of games these stunning Turn Back The Clock jerseys were actually worn in, this example shows fine game use consisting of stick marks, board burns, board paint transfer and inner pilling. An outstanding jersey which will forever appeal to a wide array of collectors. This jersey was originally acquired directly from the New York Rangers and will say so in the accompanying MGG letter.
