Lot 1767: Glenn Hall 1970-71 St. Louis Blues Game Worn Jersey
Spectacular specimen worn by Hall of Fame netminder Glenn "Mr. Goalie" Hall during his final season in the National Hockey League. Beautiful blue dureen St. Louis Blues uniform by Rawlings with the Geisler-Jorgen tag, in size 48, displays Hall's number "1" on the back. Displays lighter wear with a few good marks. This set was donated and used briefly by a high school team, and this one has been neatly stitched up at the waist and taken in at the sides above the striping. No material was removed during alteration. Obtained among a collection of thirty-five home and road Blues uniforms from the 1970-71 season belonging to a former AHL trainer who received the shirts directly from ex-Blues equipment man Tommy Woodcock. Glenn Hall, a premiere goaltender throughout the Fifties and Sixties, raised Stanley's Cup as a member of the 1961 Chicago Blackhawks and came close again in 1970 only to watch the air-born Bobby Orr dash his dreams of post-season glory. Hall's career statistics include a shining 2.51 goals per game average to go along with an incredible 84 shutouts in 906 contests. Hall took the Calder Trophy for NHL Rookie of the Year in 1956 and added three Vezina awards for the league's top goaltender in 1963, 1967 and 1969. His streak of 552 consecutive games (without a mask!) has remained unmatched among goalies. Glenn Hall was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1975.
