The Phoenix RoadRunners of the ECHL will commence their online auction for the game-worn throwback 1977-78 Roadrunners jerseys at 6PM today. The auction can be accessed by clicking here and will run until 6PM on December 15.
Each jersey features the traditional yellow, blue, and white colors of the RoadRunners with Rocky imprinted on the state of Arizona on the front of the sweater. The RoadRunners wore these jerseys during last Saturdays game against the Long Beach Ice Dogs to celebrate Turn Back the Clock Night at America West Arena. The 1977-78 version of the Phoenix Roadrunners advanced to the Pacific Hockey League Championship before falling to the San Francisco Shamrocks.
The RoadRunners online jersey auction is being held in conjunction with the MeiGray Group, the official game-worn jersey source of the ECHL. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the ECHL/Salvation Army Hurricane Relief Fund.
