1992-93 Tim Hunter Quebec Nordiques Game Worn Jersey Tim Hunter Letter
Lot #47

This jersey hails from the personal collection of legendary NHL enforcer, Tim Hunter. A letter of provenance signed by Mr. Hunter will accompany your purchase.

This home white knit gamer by CCM was worn by Tim Hunter during the 1992-93 NHL season. The Atlanta Flames selected Hunter in the 3rd round of the 1979 NHL Entry Draft. Tim made his NHL debut with a 2-game call-up in 1981-82 and finally became a fixture for the Flames in the latter stages of the 1982-83 season. He would spend parts of 11 years in Calgary before finishing his 16-year NHL career with stints in Quebec, Vancouver and San Jose. Immediately after his retirement, this inspirational leader joined the NHL coaching ranks, and spent 14 years working behind the NHL benches before becoming the Head Coach of the WHL’s Moose Jaw Warriors. Hunter ranks as one of the NHL’s all-time great heavyweights. In 815 regular season games, this 6’2” 200lb. forward amassed 3146 PIMS! He is one of only 9 players to ever surpass that vaunted total. Hunter won his only Stanley Cup in 1988-89 with Calgary. It was during that season that he set his career best single season total of 375 PIMS.

This jersey has been customized for Hunter with extra panels added into the upper sleeves. Sewn to the right breast of this gamer is the French version of the NHL’s 100-year Stanley Cup anniversary patch. The game wear on this size 56 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, a torn sleeve cuff and inner pilling. Hunter spent a mere 48 games with the Nordiques before joining the Vancouver Canucks in February 1993. This jersey resided in Hunter’s personal collection since leaving the ice in 1993 and it marks the first time we’ve seen a Hunter Nordiques jersey ever appear at Major Auction. A beautiful customized Stanley Cup anniversary patched example, hailing from the personal collection of legendary enforcer and 3000 PIMS club member, Tim Hunter.
