Grant Fuhr St. Louis Blues White Franklin Game Worn Pads Autographed - Photo Match
Lot #380

These white & blue goalie pads by Franklin were game worn by Hall of Famer Grant Fuhr while playing for the St. Louis Blues. It was with the 8th overall selection in the 1981 NHL Entry Draft that the Edmonton Oilers further cemented their destiny to greatness. Fuhr spent the first 10 years of his 19-year career with the Oilers. During that time he won 5 Stanley Cups and numerous other accolades.

Some of the career highlights include a Vezina Trophy, a Jennings Trophy, a 1st and a 2nd Team NHL All Star selection and 6 NHL All Star game appearances. On the international stage Fuhr represented Team Canada in Rendezvous ‘87 and 2 Canada Cup’s. His stellar work in the 1987 Canada Cup is still talked about to this day, having played in all 9 games and losing just once. In his final NHL season, Fuhr won his 400th game, becoming only the 6th goalie in NHL history to accomplish that feat.

Grant was one of the most durable goalies in the history of the sport. He holds numerous goaltending records that speak to that fact including most games played in a single season with 79 and most consecutive games played with 76. His record breaking undefeated streak of 23 consecutive games in 1982 still stands to this day as does his 14 assists in 1984. On October 6, 2001, the Edmonton Oilers paid homage to their great netminder by retiring his number 31 to the rafters.

With the 1990-91 season complete, the Edmonton Oilers continued to dismantle their dynasty and sent Fuhr along with fellow Hall of Famer Glenn Anderson to the Toronto Maple Leafs. After a year and a half with the Leafs, Fuhr was sent to the Buffalo Sabres where he tended goal for parts of 3 seasons before spending a partial year in Los Angeles. Fuhr’s next stop was St. Louis where he stayed for 4 seasons before spending one last year in Alberta, this time with the Calgary Flames.

These white & blue Franklin pads are autographed by Grant in blue sharpie on both pads. Shown above are several photo matches of Grant wearing these exact pads while playing with the Blues around 1997-98.
