The most desirable jersey from a historic night, this red durene beauty was worn by the one and only Gordie Howe as he skated in a February 21, 1980 game at Detroit’s famous Olympia. The last game ever played at the Olympia, it featured a Detroit Red Wings Alumni team against the ‘79-80 Wings team. Obtained from longtime Detroit Red Wings Oldtimers’ trainer and equipment manager Tom Shaw, who later had Mr. Hockey autograph it in blue sharpie on the number “9” on the back, the jersey has a classic red Rawlings company tag in the neck indicating size 48. An embroidered winged wheel crest is sewn on the front and “Howe” in white tackle twill is stitched to a red tackle twill nameplate. This is the lone sweater worn by Howe during the game and Gordie even had the fitting distinction of scoring the last goal ever at the Olympia. The “Last Hurrah Oldtimers” team photo from the event pictures Howe, along with other Detroit hockey heroes which include Abel, Lindsay, Kelly, Pronovost, Gadsby, Delvecchio, the Big M, Ullman, Crozier, Redmond and others. The jersey, in gorgeous condition, has been in the possession of Tom Shaw since the memorable evening and will come with a letter of provenance from him, along with one from the photographer who took the thought- provoking photo that will be included. Unique opportunity for serious Red Wings and Howe faithful to consider.
