Default Montreal Canadiens Fans & Vintage Hockey Collectors - Help Pls!

A friend in Toronto purchased this vintage Habs jacket today. I donít have a photo of the tagging but I believe this could be a 1950ís team jacket. Anyone seen this style before. Several on Classic Auctionís site but none quite like this.

Thanks for the help!

I think itís a cool looking jacket, but it doesnít appear to have much wear. I would be surprised if this was older than about 20 years. Most of the 40ís - 50ís era jackets have significant wear. There was a series of these made that were pretty expensive that looked a lot like this.

Thanks! Could be right. Just obtained a photo of the collar tagging. Will get more.

Iím not familiar with that tag so I guess it could be good. Better photos of the exterior and interior lining of the jacket would probably show more. Like I said, itís a nice jacket either way.

Still hard to tell, but everything looks brand new to me. This looks like the jackets they made to mimic he vintage team jackets. Sorry I am not of more help. Just muddied the waters.

No, no problem. I appreciate the comments. The new owner, my buddy, says it def has some vintage to it (he feels that it’s 1950’s) and that he purchased from a fomer assistant curator at the HHOF (along with some other cool stuff) had the jacket in a suit bag in his closet for 30+Years. No way to confirm this of course.....but he believes the fellow. He said the seller told him that it showed up at the HHOF years ago (perhaps as a donation without details or provenance...he can’t recall) and he eventually was allowed to take it as it didn’t land in the collection!

Generally the newer ones have that cropped bottom. This one has the straight hanging style which was common back in the day, but hard to find nowadays. He older jackets also had more of a higher end lining which this one seems to have as well. It just looks so new or unused. Hope it works out for you. I love that style
