Lot #26

This jersey originated from the personal collection of Bernie Nicholls. Mr. Nicholls’ signed letter will accompany your purchase.

This road red knit gamer by CCM was worn by Bernie Nicholls during the 1993-94 NHL season, while scoring his 400th NHL Goal and 1000th NHL Point. The Los Angeles Kings selected Nicholls in the 4th round of the 1980 NHL Entry Draft. Nicholls made his NHL debut in 1981-82 with the Kings where he played for parts of 9 seasons before being dealt to the New York Rangers during the 1989-90 campaign. Bernie went onto play for the Rangers, Oilers, Devils, Blackhawks and Sharks before calling it quits after 18 NHL seasons. In a career that spanned 1127 games, Nicholls retired with 475 goals, 734 assists and 1209 points. Bernie was a three-time NHL All Star who was traded by the Kings in his prime. At the time, Bernie was Los Angeles’ 5th all-time leading scorer. Merely a few years later, the Rangers dealt Nicholls to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for Hall of Famer Mark Messier. Bernie remains one of only 8 players in NHL history to score 70 goals in a season and one of only five players to record 150 points in a season.

The sleeves on this jersey have been custom shortened for Nicholls with elastic added to the cuffs by the team. The game wear on this 1st set sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes and inner pilling. Shown above are a number of beautiful photo matches of Nicholls wearing this exact jersey during the 1993-94 season, including to the road trip where he scored his 400th NHL Goal early in the season, to his 1000th NHL point game in February at Tampa and a match towards the very end of the season in April at Washington. On the inside hem is the official New Jersey Devils game worn jersey and set stamp. Bernie wore this sweater throughout the memorable 1993-94 season with the battle scars and photo matches serving as evidence. A history making well-worn photo matched example that hails from Bernie Nicholls personal collection and will be accompanied by his signed letter.
