The Hanson Brothers “Slap Shot” Autographed Replica Charlestown Chiefs Jersey
Lot #517

This blue mesh replica Charlestown Chiefs hockey jersey has been personally signed by Dave Hanson, Steve Carlson and Jeff Carlson of “Slap Shot” fame. Slap Shot, a 1977 comedy, was written by Nancy Dowd and starred Paul Newman.

The characters of the "Hanson Brothers" are in fact based on three actual brothers, Jeff, Steve and Jack Carlson. The character of Dave “Killer” Carlson is based on Dave "Killer" Hanson. Steve and Jeff Carlson played their Hanson brother counterparts in the film. Jack Carlson was originally scripted to appear in the film as the third brother, Jack, with Dave Hanson playing his film counterpart, Dave “Killer” Carlson. However by the time filming began, Jack Carlson had been called up by the Edmonton Oilers, then of the WHA, to play in the WHA playoffs, so Dave Hanson moved into the role of "Jack Hanson," and actor Jerry Houser was hired for the role of "'Killer' Carlson."

The jersey is unnumbered. It has a “Charlestown All American City” patch on the left shoulder. Dave Hanson #16, Steve Carlson #17 and Jeff Carlson #18 have signed the jersey on the hem. The signatures are beautiful.
