Late 1980s/Early 1990s Larry Murphy Minnesota North Stars Practice Worn Jersey
Lot #92

We attribute this maroon knit practice jersey by CCM as being worn by Larry Murphy during the late 1980’s or early 1990’s. Murphy, who was the 4th overall selection in the 1980 NHL Entry Draft and was later inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2004 in his first year of eligibility, spent 21 seasons on NHL ice. During that time, he captured four Stanley Cups, two each with Pittsburgh and Detroit. He ranks in the top 15 on the NHL’s all-time career assists list. He also ranks 5th on the all-time scoring list for defensemen with over 1200 points. He is 2nd in career NHL games played trailing only Gordie Howe. Larry tallied double-digit goals in an impressive 16 different seasons. His 150+ career playoff points rank him in the top 20 all-time. Murph performed at an elite level for two decades, earning 2nd Team All Star selections in the 1980’s and 1990’s.

After being selected 4th overall by the LA Kings in 1980, Murphy began his NHL career in Los Angeles that fall. Larry spent the first three years of his career in LA and merely 6 games into his 4th year with the Kings he was dealt to the Washington Capitals in one of the most lopsided trades in league history. Murphy’s time on the LA blueline was prosperous, having scored 16, 22 and 14 goals and point totals of 76, 66 and 62 in his three years of service. He would go on to represent the North Stars, Penguins, Maple Leafs and Red Wings before retiring in 2001.

This practice jersey shows nice use that consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes and inner pilling. A nice offering worn by Hall of Famer Larry Murphy.
