Hall of Fame defenseman Larry Robinson wore this jersey during the 1979 Challenge Cup Series vs. the Soviets. The Soviets defeated the NHL All-Stars in the three game series, 2 games to 1.
The jersey exhibits black marks and board burns. There is also some damage to the upper left portion of the crest which is not game wear.
The jersey was originally sold by Classic Auctions who obtained it from the personal collection of Helmut Balderis. Balderis, who played for the Soviets in the series obtained the sweater from Robinson when the series ended.
A letter from Helmut Balderis will accompany the jersey.
