Sean Broderick is a renowned jersey collector who focuses on goalies, specifically Vezina winning years. He is planning on bringing some amazing hockey history to the 2017 Game Worn Expo in Chicago and we wanted to let you know in advance, some of the incredible pieces you will be able to see!
Pictured above: 1957 Jacques Plante – worn during 1957 Stanley Cup Finals and matched to Cup-winning ceremony
1969-71 Terry Sawchuk/Gilles Villemure. Matched to both Sawchuk’s last year in the NHL (died in 1970) and Villemure’s Vezina-winning year, where he shared the award with Ed Giacomin.
1972-73 Ken Dryden – worn during second half of the year, including Stanley Cup Finals. Matched to multiple photos against Chicago in the Finals
1972-74 Doug Favell/Bernie Parent – worn by Favell in 72-73 then by Parent in 73-74. Very rare white nameplate that was used for TV games and only year it was used until the 08-09 season, if I remember correctly. Worn in regular season and first couple rounds of playoffs, where Flyers won their first Stanley Cup
1981-83 Billy Smith – worn during the playoffs of his 81-82 Vezina campaign and throughout the 82-83 season. Worn in two Stanley Cup Finals series and matched to both series. Also match to 82-83 celebration.
1984-85 Pelle Lindbergh – worn throughout most of the regular season and matched to multiple games. Pelle led the Flyers to the Finals that year and won his only Vezina. Died in November of 85.
87-88 Grant Fuhr – worn during part of the regular season and into the Stanley Cup Finals. Matched to Game 4 of the Finals when the lights went out in Boston.
We hope you are able to make it to the expo to enjoy some of this fantastic hockey history with us!
