1977 1979 Russia

This mesh jersey was used during the late seventies as evidenced by the material on the sleeve as opposed to the mesh. The v neck Is also a sign of that era as the earlier versions had a circular collar. The Russians used wool jerseys later than any other NHL club as they finally switched to a durene type In 1975. During 1976, they switched to mesh type like this one. Later they screened all the markings on.  This jersey was given to me by Dr. Charles Bull. He was the Doctor for Team Canada for many years starting In 1972.
