Description: The jersey shows very good wear with around 6 repairs on the right sleeve and a couple on the left. In addition, there is a repair on the back hem. The fight strap is a small elastic ribbon style strap. There is evidence of a nameplate change. The original nameplate was about 1/2" shorter, but the Palmateer plate shows use and matches the material of the jersey. I am not sure when the name was changed or for how long Palmateer wore this jersey. I have been told that the Caps wore these Superfil jerseys in 1979-80 and so I believe and this jersey was recycled for Palmy to wear when he was acquired the following season. Further research ongoing.
