1985-86 Bob Brooke Road jersey (MeiGray Vintage)

This is Bob Brooke's 1985-86 road sweater with the beautiful diagonal "New York" style on the front.. Dozens of team repairs, stick marks, paint transfer.. A true classic of a very good Ranger while he was on my beloved team.  During the 1985-86 regular season Brooke scored 24 goals and added 20 assists for 44 points and was an instrumental part of the Rangers run to the Wales Conference finals 6 goals and 9 assists for 15 points in 16 games.  He had a memorable OT winner at Madison Square Garden vs. Washington Capitals in round 2 and scored memorable goals against the Philadelphia Flyers in round 1.
Thanks to Barry Meisel at the MeiGray Group for helping me obtain this great sweater.
