NEW JIM DOWD JERSEY ON ITS WAY!
CCM, Maska Air-Knit, Size ?, 75th Patch, Recycled Doug Brown, Chopped Nameplate, Shows very good overall wear with unrepaired holes and stick marks throughout.
Jimmy made his NHL Debut on March 26, 1992 wearing this jersey. A 4-2 win over Boston. The one and only game he played in that first season for the Devils and his first of 827 career NHL games. Martin Brodeur also made his NHL debut that night for the Devils and picked up his first career win on his way to setting the NHL career record. The jersey itself is a great example of how frugal teams used to be. Instead of making a new jersey for one game, they took a Doug Brown from a previous year, chopped the "BR" and "N" off the nameplate and added a couple of "D's". They removed the "2's" from Browns's 24 and added "3's". They slapped on the 75th patch and a new jersey for Dowd.
