1993-94 Jim Hillman University of Minnesota Golden Gophers Game Worn Jersey - Mariucci Arena Throwback Alternate
Lot #315
This home white mesh alternate gamer by Athletic Sewing & Steichens was worn by Jim Hillman during the 1993-94 WCHA season. Hillman, a native of Blaine, MN spent 2 seasons in the USHL with the St. Paul Vulcans prior to beginning his collegiate career at the University of Minnesota. Hillman’s collegiate playing career consisted of a mere 6 contests for the Golden Gophers in 1993-94. Incidentally, he played alongside his brother John, who was also only a member of the 1993-94 squad. Following his playing days, Hillman joined the coaching ranks and spent 2 years as an assistant and 5 more as a Head Coach in the USHL.

The 1993-94 season marked the opening of the new Mariucci Arena and in tribute the Golden Gophers broke out these “Bumble Bee” styled Turn Back The Clock alternates. These were a throwback to the Golden Gophers uniform style from a half-century ago and were only worn on home ice. The game wear on this size XL sweater consists of some stick and slash marks, several stitch pops and light pilling. Sewn through the eyelets is the original tie string. These TBTC gamers became an instant classic in collecting circles and have been long since coveted by Minnesota and college collectors alike. This 1-year style is considered among the toughest and most desirable of the past quarter century by University of Minnesota collectors and is now ready to become an instant cornerstone in your game worn college collection!
