1993-94 Marty McSorley Penguins Game Worn Jersey - Video Match
Lot #175

This road black knit gamer by CCM was worn by Marty McSorley during the 1993-94 NHL season. McSorley spent 17 seasons running roughshot over the NHL. During that time, Marty partook in 961 regular season contests that saw him amass 3381 PIMS, good for 4th best of all time. In 115 playoff contests he totaled another 374 PIMS.

During his career, McSorley went to 3 Stanley Cup Finals, all alongside Wayne Gretzky. The first two were winning efforts in Edmonton, while the last was unsuccessful with the Kings in 1993. Marty’s time in Pittsburgh was brief, having broken in there as a rookie and playing parts of 2 seasons before joining the Oilers in 1985-86.

He would return to the Steel City for part of the 1993-94 campaign, spending a total of 47 games wearing the Penguins black and gold. This is his road jersey from that brief return to Pittsburgh. In fact this was the jersey that Marty was wearing during the famed fight against Bob Probert on February 4th 1994 in Detroit. The fight which pitted two of the games great heavyweights was deemed a marathon and is looked back upon as one of the decade’s great rumbles. Shown above are video highlights of that famous heavyweight brawl with Marty wearing this gamer

This sweater has been uniquely customized for Marty. There have been inserts sewn into the sleeves while the neck has been vented and sewn back. Fight abuse is readily evident. The collar has been torn down the front and is sewn up tie-down style, really cool. The cuffs show stitch popping all around while washed out bloodstaining remains evident as well. In addition there are numerous stick marks as well as board burns and inner pilling to complete the offering of this fine heavyweight example.
