Offered is an Al Secord Rookie-Era Game Used Sher-Wood 5052-A Hockey Stick. Secord spent his first 2 1/2 years with the Boston Bruins, and it is likely he brought the offered stick with him when he came to the Chicago Blackhawks in 1981. Other period examples of this model date it more to the very late 1970s. The stick has "SECORD" and "20" handwritten in marker on the shaft which presents with his signature knob taping and tape still on the blade. The stick shows tons of use. 

The Chicago Blackhawks Net Setter Collection

Rockhurst Auctions is proud to present The Chicago Blackhawks Net Setter Collection. All the material presented in this collection emanates from the estate of Dan Grubber. As the story goes, Dan had seats on the ice for Chicago Blackhawks games, near one of the goals, at The Chicago Stadium. At a game in the mid-1960s, one of the Stadium crew asked Dan if he could help them set the net on the goal at that end. Dan agreed, and then amazingly continued to set the nets for the next 50 years. From The Stadium to The United Center, Dan gladly took care of his "job" at every home game during seven different decades.

During his long tenure, his unique access to team personnel prompted him to start collecting game used sticks and autographs from the team, and from a few of the opposing teams, as well. Dan became a part of The Blackhawks family, spending time with coaches, players and team employees outside of games for years and years. He was even honored with being on the ice to assist in raising of one of the Stanley Cup Champions banners at The United Center.

Sadly, Dan passed away in 2022, but he left us with an incredible collection of game used equipment and autographs with unrivaled provenance. From Hull to Makita, and Kane to Toews, Dan saw it all. We hope you enjoy perusing these wonderful relics as much as we have in bringing them to you.
