Photos: Cool Islanders Memorabilia

Christian Arnold, Islanders Point Blank:

On Thursday we looked at a great moment in Islander history; Bob Nystrom’s game winning goal in Game 6 of the 1980 Stanley Cup Finals.10314465_10202892310802343_2932508409974613545_n

Well, one lucky Islanders Point Blank reader has a piece of history from that day. IPB read Barry won an auction last year held by Heritage Auctions for Nystrom’s game worn jersey. As was noted in IPB’s article last year, the jersey shows obvious signs of wear and tear and has the Olympic patch on the left arm commemorating the 1980 winter games held in Lake Placid. Nystrom’s goal began the Islanders run of four straight Stanley Cups, which eventually ended in 1984.

Barry also owns a handful of other collectible jerseys, including  a game worn Denis Potvin sweater, a Butch Goring jersey from the 1982 Stanley Cup Finals and a John Tonelli jersey worn during the 1984 Stanley Cup Finals against the Oilers.

A big thanks to IPB reader Barry for sharing these pictures with us.

always felt the Isles 3rd jersey should have been a tribute to the Long Island Ducks. Sadly I feel the future 3rd jersey will be a throw back to the "Long Island" Islanders!

Barry is one of the nicest guys I've ever met. As great as his collection is...he's better. Real good guy. Even let me touch Nystrom jersey.

Yeah Barry. That's awesome. Good for you to have such rare stuff. I've got my fair share of isles stuff but that's insane. Need a Kenny morrow team USA next. I sure hope the fans get some great stuff this year. The whole season should be fan appreciation night. We need another top ten games DVDs set. Would really like to see some games from the first season. Let's get the season started

If we ever get any game we want I'll never leave the house. Those vintage games are priceless. As far a scissons goes. He played in Saskatoon. I got to see him play his junior career. And I thought he was average. Way overrated. I was livid when they drafted him. I think they saw Brent sutter in him. Don't know why!!!! Tex ehman always loved whl players. And the ones he drafted were good. But scissons was a huge mistake and I knew that at the time even before anyone knew what jägr was going to do

depending on where you live, if you can sign up for NHL Gamecenter, each team has an archive of vintage games (usually the most significant playoff games) that you can choose from. i watch all of the isles games up here in Canada online through nhl.com. plus it provides you current stats. my favorite is being able to watch games anywhere i can get wifi (outside on my deck even) and if i miss the game i have the choice of seeing the isles feed both in the complete or condensed versions!
