Circa 1973-74 Terry O'Reilly Game Worn Gloves
Lot #178

These black and white hockey gloves by Cooper were worn by Terry O'Reilly circa the 1973-74 NHL season. O’Reilly, the Big Bad Bruins beloved tough guy, patrolled the right wing for the Boston Bruins for all 13 seasons of his NHL career. During that time he registered over 200 goals and 2000 PIMS. He was twice an NHL All Star, often showcasing his offensive talents.

During the 1977-78 season, O’Reilly led the Bruins in scoring with 29 goals and 90 points. O’Reilly is probably best remembered for his on-ice fights of which there were many. He is a dominant figure on any Big Bad Bruins fight tape from the 1970’s or 1980’s. O’Reilly served as full-time team Captain for his final 2 seasons, following the retirement of Wayne Cashman. To this day, Terry remains one of the most beloved sports figures in the history of Boston sports.

These Cooper gloves have Terry's player number "24" stenciled on cloth tape across the cuffs. The gloves show tremendous game use as you would expect from a player who wasn't afraid to mix it up. Shown above is a photo of Terry wearing this style of Cooper gloves during the 1973-74 NHL season. In 1973-74 the Bruins made yet another trip to the Stanley Cup Finals, their 3rd in 5 seasons.
