Mid/Late 1970s Saginaw Gears Game Worn Jersey Player #1
Lot #223

This home white mesh gamer by Athletic Sewing was worn by player #1 circa the mid to late 1970’s during IHL play. Players of the era to have worn the player number include former NHL Goalies Bob Froese and Doug Keans. The Gears existed in the IHL from 1972-83, a total of 11 seasons. During that time, they went to five Turner Cup Finals walking away with two Championships, the first in 1978 and the last in 1981.

The game wear on this sweater is solid and consists of stick, slash and puck marks, goal post paint transfer, pilling and some team-sewn repair work. A unique number change is evident, as this sweater was originally numbered as 01. A tough to find minor league example from one of the great short-lived IHL franchises.
