Absolutely astonishing 50-year old jersey has an equally remarkable story behind it. It's Bobby Hull's first ever junior sweater, worn by Bobby as a 14-year old while with the Hespeler, Ontario Hawks during the 1953-54 season, his first away from home. The future Hall-of-Famer was just 14 when Chicago Black Hawks scout Robert Wilson spotted Bobby on an outdoor rink in Belleville. Wilson proposed that Hull go to Galt the next season to play with the Hawks-sponsored Junior "A" team, but since he wasn't quite ready to step into such fast company, he was farmed out to Hespeler, a Junior "B" team. The next season Hull did play six games with Galt but he was loaned to the Woodstock Warriors who captured the Ontario Junior "B" championship. A promotion to the St. Catharines Teepees in 1955-56 and a second season in Junior "A" preceeded his fabulous 15-year NHL career. This sensational red, white and black wool jersey that has always held a special place in Bobby's heart still has the original tag in the neck. It reads "D-5 LTD – Waterloo – All Wool". Felt number "16"s outlined in blue are sewn on the front and back while a Hespeler Hawks felt patch is sewn on the right shoulder. A shortened skate lace is woven through the wide metal eyelits. Game wear includes four repairs on both the front and back, six on the right sleeve and another on the left. Numerous holes (over three dozen) were never repaired. The neck, the double-weight shoulders and the thick cuffs are in outstanding excellent condition. From the personal collection of Bobby Hull, this awesome and significant piece of hockey history will come with a letter of authenticity signed by hockey's greatest left winger.
