This road red knit gamer by CCM was worn by Bobby Smith circa the late 1980’s during NHL play. The Minnesota North Stars selected Smith with the 1st overall pick in the 1978 NHL Amateur Draft. Smith began his NHL career in 1978-79 with the North Stars and played for the franchise for parts of 9 seasons that encompassed the beginning and end of his illustrious career. In between, Bobby spent parts of 7 seasons with the Montreal Canadiens where he won the only Stanley Cup of his career in 1986. Bobby would appear in the Stanley Cup Finals on four separate occasions, twice each with Minnesota and Montreal. Smith was a four-time NHL All Star who also captured the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s Rookie of the Year in 1979. In 1077 games played, Bobby tallied 357 goals and 1036 points. Bobby also had the good fortune to partake in 184 playoff games during which time he racked up a most impressive 160 points.

Proudly sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the Captain’s “C”. The hem of this gamer has been custom shortened by the team for Smith. The game wear on this sweater is solid and consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, fine inner pilling and no less than 75 to 80 classic Canadiens team-sewn repairs. All in all, a Bobby Smith Canadiens jersey has been a notoriously difficult get for hobbyists over the years with this being the first example that we’ve had the pleasure to bring to auction. This customized offering shows terrific game use and sports the coveted letter of honor, choice!
