Description

The offered Washington Capitals road jersey is a battle-tested garment worn during the franchise’s formative years. The red dureen pullover garment features the club logo sewn to the chest in white and blue twill with like-colored five-point stars symmetrically lining the upper front and three-quarter sleeves. In white-on-blue double twill, “21” is sewn to the back and each shoulder. “MARUK” is sewn to a nameplate atop the back number in white twill, and a “Wilson” size “44” label resides within the white stretch knit V-neck. This was likely originally worn during the 1975-76 or 1976-77 season by left winger Mike Lampman (the first Southern Californian drafted into the NHL) and subsequently by Dennis Maruk, as the tagging is consistent with early Caps jerseys, and there is no evidence of a nameplate change, only that the present name plate was added (the Caps road jerseys didn’t have nameplates during Lampman’s tenure). Heavy wear is evident with (3) team repairs on the front, surface marks throughout and a vintage fight strap sewn within the back tail. Full photo LOA from Rich Ellis.
