What a Beaut!

Would you look at that? That, my friends, is something I have been trying to lay my hands on for the better part of 3 years. It is a t-shirt/jersey/sweater from the Lithuanian ice hockey team. I could not find a true jersey, but this is more then satisfactory. For about 100Lt. or about $37.75, I procured what, until recently was my Holy Grail. It is a little flimsy, but I think even the sweaters were of the same quality.  How could this purchase be even sweeter? Well just look at the back. Yes, it is a Dainius Zubrus sweater too, the most famous Lithuanian player, who happens to play for my favorite Devils. There is even a Championship ‘patch’ along with the federation emblem. The best part is the crest, which is the Lithuanian crest the ‘Vytis‘. I also got some other little souvenirs. This must rank up there in my top-10 purchases of all time. Right next to my Tampa Bay Lightning 90’s third jersey.

Sweater of the Week of 1/9: California Golden Seals

1974-1976

A new segment if you will. This weeks selection is the dark sweater of the California Golden Seals. This was the last of three different style of sweaters won by the Seals/Golden Seals in their brief history from 1967 to 1976.  Since I am a believer that digital reproductions of sweaters, while helpful and fun, are not enough, here are some shots of the entire uniform on some Golden Seals players:  Jim Neilson, Bob Murdoch, and Giles Meloche.

A little tid-bit about the Seals, they were essentially contracted and were meshed with the Minnesota North Stars. When the San Jose Sharks came into existence they had some deal where they took a few players from the North Stars, essentially undoing the contraction that took place in the late-70’s.
