An import from the Slovak Republic, Stan Mikita made it through the "Iron Curtain" in 1948, to become one the NHL's all-time greats. Get a firm grip on this legendary Hall of Fame centerman, with this game used hockey stick. Made by Northland, this nearly sixty year old stick, pre-dates Mikita's famous "banana stick" days, with a blade that is tapered on the back edges and which has just the slightest of curves. The shaft is stamped at various points with "Mikita"; "Northland Pro" twice; "Made by Northland Ski Co. St. Paul Minn." twice; and "Olympic Sporting Goods Co. Detroit, Michigan" twice. Another stamp near the top of the shaft reads "Lie No. 6-1/2", just below the tape that covers the end, and Mikita's number "21" is written in black marker just below this model type stamp. The blade bears both black tape and fiberglass tape, and the shaft section just above the blade shows an obvious repair, with screw heads protruding through more black tape. A handwritten notation on the back short side of the shaft just below the tape at top reads in part "Nov. 11, 196(?), Sunday, Hawks vs Tronto, H S 3, T 5". A check of the Black Hawks schedule shows they lost to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Sunday 11/11/62, by a score of 5-3. Despite the described repair, this ancient gamer from the late "Original Six" era remains very appealing, with abundant signs of authentic use, particularly the contact marks on both sides of the blade.
