Late 80ís Bob Probert Detroit Red Wings Practice Worn Jersey
Lot #80

This green mesh jersey by Eastside and Sand Knit was worn by Bob Probert circa the 1980’s during his early days in the NHL. The Detroit Red Wings selected Probert in the 3rd round of the 1983 NHL Entry Draft. Probert made his NHL debut with Detroit during the 1985-86 season. It didn’t take long for Bob to make his presence felt, chipping in 21 points and 186 PIMS in 44 games as a rookie. The following two seasons Probert and his Wings made trips to the Conference Finals, where they fell both times to the Oilers dynasty. Probert spent his first 9 seasons with the Red Wings where he became the leagues top enforcer and a serious fan favorite. After some off-ice problems and a year away from the sport, Probert’s career landed him in Chicago where he ran roughshod over the league for the next 7 seasons. All told, Bob played for 16 seasons in the NHL and is 5th on the NHL’s all-time penalty minute leaders list with 3300 PIMS! Considered one of the most feared men who ever laced up the skates, this tough guy will never be forgotten by the fans that witnessed his wrath. Sadly, Bob passed away at only 46 years of age in the summer of 2010.

Sewn into the collar of this practice jersey are the East Side Sporting Goods and Medalist Sand-Knit tagging. The wear on this jersey consists of stick marks, board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes, heavy inner pilling and multiple areas of team-sewn repair work. Probert’s player number 24 is found in yellow numbering on the verso while a wash instruction tag is affixed to the inner seam. A terrific early career offering from one of the NHL’s all-time great legendary enforcer’s.
