It’s not often you get to see a hockey sweater from the pre-Original Six era, but one such item is up for auction right now. Lelands auction house is currently taking bids on a 1922-23 Vancouver sweater and it is a sight to behold.

While there is a constant debate in hockey circles these days about whether players wear “jerseys” or “sweaters,” there is no debate with this one: it is literally a cardigan-style sweater made of dyed wool with wooden buttons up the middle.
