Description: (from gamewornauctions): Sewn to the left shoulder of this gamer is the Badger Bob patch, worn in commemoration of the passing of Badger Bob Johnson. Johnson guided the Penguins to their first Stanley Cup title the year prior. Sewn to the right shoulder is the Pittsburgh Penguins 25-year anniversary patch. Sewn to the right breast of this gamer is the 75-year NHL anniversary patch. The game wear on this goalie worn sweater is pleasing, consisting of stick and puck marks as well as some goal post paint transfer and pilling. Penned in the trainer’s hand on the collar tag is Frank’s #40 in black sharpie. Accompanying your purchase will be a letter of authenticity from noted Penguins historian Joseph Tomon. 3-patch Penguins gamers are among the most coveted and collectible shirts in the entire hobby. Couple that with the fact that Pietrangelo Penguins gamers have been notoriously difficult to obtain through the years, makes this example most worthy of your attention.
