Early 1980s Bob Bourne New York Islanders Game Worn Jersey Stanley Cup Season
Lot #38

This home white mesh gamer by Sandow SK was worn by Bob Bourne during the early 1980’s during a Stanley Cup winning season. The KC Scouts selected Bourne in the 3rd round of the 1974 NHL Amateur Draft. A trade sent Bourne to the New York Islanders where he made his NHL debut in 1974-75, an important season in franchise history. Bourne became an integral part of the team’s nucleus that would go onto dynasty status in the years to come. Bourne remained an Islander for 12 seasons and won four straight Stanley Cups before joining the Kings for two more years prior to announcing his retirement. Bobby was a three time 30-goal scorer for New York, although his biggest contributions were felt in the playoffs during the dynasty years. During the four consecutive Stanley Cup winning seasons in the 1980’s, Bourne averaged a point per game, scoring 74 points in 74 playoff games including many clutch goals. Recognized as one of the taller players in the league, Bourne possessed lightning fast speed and he used it to perfection as one of the NHL’s best penalty killers, a constant breakaway threat and a tremendous defensive forward. Bobby won the 1987-88 Bill Masterton Trophy, represented Team Canada in the 1984 Canada Cup and was also an NHL All Star.

The game wear on this sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer from the Nassau Coliseum, un-repaired burn holes, collar pilling, fine inner pilling and a couple of team-sewn repairs. A sweet example worn by this NHL All Star during the height of the Islanders Stanley Cup dynasty.
