88-89 Jim Playfair

Jim Playfair had a very brief NHL career.  He had a ton of potential (1st round pick by Edmonton) but injuries hampered his career, limiting him to just 21 NHL appearances.

88-89 Jim Playfair CCM ultrafil home.  Decent wear on this one, (he played 7 this year).  Nice stickmarks, burns & a paint transfer on hem.  One repair on the back & nice interior pilling.  Unique thing about this jersey is the crest... it's made entirely of tackle twill, the material the #'s are made from.  The hair & feathers are normally chain-stitched, but for this season, both Playfair & Duane Sutter were issued a home & road with this unusual-looking crest.  I've heard it was a test to see how they looked... luckily, they did not adopt them universally.

Detail of the Playfair crest, again note, no chain stitching.  I know who owns the road Playfair & the home Sutter.  Anyone out there have the road Sutter?

My DVD of a 10/16/88 regular season game vs Boston features Playfair wearing this jersey.  In the pic above, you can compare the crest with Wilson's... Wilson has the skinny, flat-faced crest, note the width & forehead on Playfair's crest.  Also, the spacing of the nameplate & lack of Gunzo's on the rear hem match to the shirt.  Interestingly, Sutter is not wearing a tackle twill crested jersey in this game.
