An instant collection, we have a huge group of New York Rangers game-used and team-signed sticks totaling 9, along with a pair of team-signed game-issued examples. Ranging in years from the early-1980s to mid-1990s, we have game-used and team-signed examples from Ed Olczyk, Bob Froese, Mark Osborne, Bernie Nichols, Chris Nilan, Pierre Larouche, James Patrick, Ron Greschner and one unidentified. The two other team-signed sticks were issued to Barry Beck and Rudy Poeschek. We should also note that each stick has been covered from top to bottom with a thin layer of shellac, except for the Olczyk example.
The breakdown for each stick is as follows. 1) Ed Olczyk 1993-94. A Titan model, it has been signed by 17 in blue marker including Graves, Kovalev, Olczyk, Gartner and others. 2) Mark Osborne 1985-86. A Canadien model, 28 have signed in blue marker including Greschner, Ridley, Whistle, Miller and others. 3) Chris Nilan 1988-89. Approx. 35 have signed this Sher-Wood model in blue marker, including Lafleur, Leetch, Kisio, Granato and others. 4) Bernie Nichols 1990-91. An especially heavy Sher-Wood model, roughly 35 have signed the taped sections including Kisio, King, Gartner, Janssens, Mullen, Mallette, Kisio and others. 5) Pierre Larouche 1983-84. Another Sher-Wood model, 32 have signed including Weeks, Brooks, Patrick and others. 6) James Patrick 1986-87. Approx. 44 have signed this KOHO model, including Giacomin, Patrick, Kisio, Melnyk, Osborne, Deblois and others. 7) Ron Greschner 1985-86. A KOHO model that has been signed by approx. 32, including Patrick, Whistle, Ridley, Greschner, Gagner and others. 8) Barry Beck 1980-81 (game-issued). A KOHO model, 27 have signed in blue marker including Hedberg, Esposito, Vickers, Burns, Kotsopoulos, the Maloney brothers and others. 9) Rudy Poeschek 1988-89 (game-issued). A Titan model, approx. 31 have signed including Kisio, Leetch, Dahlen, Deblois and others. 10) Bob Froese. This Vic goal stick has been signed by roughly 31 in blue marker, including Kisio, Lafleur, Leetch, Deblois and others. 11) Unidentified 1988-89. A right-handed Chimo model, a number starting with “3” has been crossed out on the upper shaft, with “18” handwritten above and “26” below. 32 have signed (approx.), including Leetch, Granato, Greschner, Kisio, Shaw, Turcotte and others. All sticks feature the users name on the shaft (except the unidentified example), with varying degrees of game-use shown. Most of the signatures present remain in solid condition, with some lighter/faded examples on the Greschner, Nilan and James Patrick sticks. To put together another collection of game-used and team-signed examples from prominent 1980s New York Rangers would be an arduous task to say the least.
