GAMEWORNAUCTIONS.NET is pleased to present The Michel Goulet Collection. This exciting collection of game worn jerseys, game used sticks, game worn equipment and memorabilia come directly from the personal collection of Hockey Hall of Famer, Michel Goulet. Mr. Goulet personally collected and preserved these items over the course of his legendary NHL career. A signed letter from Mr. Goulet will accompany your purchase.

This black barber pole knit gamer by CCM was worn by Michel Goulet during the 1991-92 NHL season. The Quebec Nordiques selected Goulet in the 1st round of the 1979 NHL Entry Draft. This Quebec native made his professional debut in 1978-79 with the WHA’s Birmingham Bulls. When NHL expansion ensued the following year, Goulet made his NHL debut in 1979-80 with the Quebec Nordiques.

Goulet was among the finest Left Wingers of his generation, and in NHL history for that matter. He netted a spectacular 548 goals and 1152 points during a 15-year NHL career. Michel’s goal totals from the period of 1981-82 thru 1987-88 is an impressive read; 42, 57, 56, 55, 53, 49 and 48 respectively. He was a five-time 1st or 2nd Team NHL All Star who also played in five NHL All Star Games. Goulet represented Team Canada during the World Championships, the 1984 and 1987 Canada Cup and also represented Team NHL during Rendezvous ’87. Following 11 seasons with the Nordiques, Goulet joined the Chicago Blackhawks and soon after led them on an epic run to the 1992 Stanley Cup Finals. Merely two seasons later, Michel suffered a vicious head injury during the latter stages of the 1993-94 season, putting a sudden end to his Hall of Fame career.

Based on our research, the Hawks wore their stunning TBTC sweaters a total of 19 times throughout the 1991-92 season. The set which was sold by the team in the late 1990’s was considered the backup set, worn for a game, perhaps two and showed very light wear. The primary set was worn about 17 or 18 times, featured tremendous game use and were taken home by the players after the season. As you would imagine, the primary set is highly prized amongst collectors, with a scant few having found their way into the hobby to date. To our knowledge, this is just the second such example to appear at Major Auction. Sewn to the right breast of this gamer is the NHL’s 75-year anniversary patch. 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, washed out bloodstains, fine inner pilling and a couple of handfuls of team-sewn repairs. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Goulet wearing this exact jersey during the 1991-92 season. The 1991-92 season was a special one in Chicago as the team trekked to the Stanley Cup Finals, making their first visit since 1973. This well-worn fresh to the hobby patched and photo matched example comes directly from the personal collection of Michel Goulet and will be accompanied by his signed LOA, choice!
