1995-96 Gordie Roberts Minnesota Moose Game Worn Jersey Team Letter
Lot #229

This home white knit gamer by Bauer was worn by Gordie Roberts during the 1995-96 IHL season, the last season for both the Minnesota Moose and Roberts himself. The Montreal Canadiens selected Roberts in the 3rd round of the 1977 NHL Amateur Draft. This Detroit native made his WHA debut in 1975-76 with the New England Whalers where he remained thru the fledgling leagues collapse. Gordie transferred with his teammates to the NHL and played with Hartford for parts of two seasons before joining the North Stars during the 1980-81 campaign, a year that saw the North Stars trek to the Stanley Cup Finals. Roberts would spend 8 years wearing the Minnesota green and gold colors, earning himself a place on their all-decade team of the 1980’s. He later went on to play for the Flyers, Blues, Penguins and Bruins before retiring after 19 WHA/NHL seasons. Roberts played with the Penguins during their back-to-back Stanley Cup runs in the early 1990’s. In just over 1400 games played between the WHA and NHL this hard-nosed defenseman racked up in excess of 2000 PIMS.

Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the alternate Captain’s “A”. The sleeves on this gamer have been custom shortened by the team for Roberts. The game wear on this size 56 Goalie cut sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes and fine inner pilling. According to the Moose, the players were issued one home and road jersey for the entire season. A beautiful customized gamer, complete with the coveted letter of honor that marked the final season for the Minnesota Moose as well as the end to Gordie Roberts 22-year professional career. This jersey will be accompanied by a Moose team letter.
