Bob Probert jersey question

What years did Probert serve as alternate captain for the Wings? I'm looking to have a Red Wings jersey from the 90-91 season customized, and I would like to make it a Probert. I'm just not sure if I should be putting the "A" on it or not.

This is my jersey (don't have any actual pictures right now): http://www.nhluniforms.com/RedWings/RedWings1990-91.html

thanks in advance

When and if someone wore an "A" is always difficult to find out as there aren't any sites (at least for the Wings) that list them unlike the "C". Best bet is to use photo sites (Getty Images) or track down a pic of a game worn. It's also easier if the jersey has a patch on it when using a reference photo as that would give you the timeline - in this case you're out of luck. I say get it customized and have them send you the "A" un-attached - if you ever determine he did, you're golden!

Looking at hockey card photos, he wore it during the cards of 92-93, 93-94, 94-95

and here is photo during 1993 season with the Stanley Cup Patch

Thanks for the info. From what I've gathered from you fine posters, and from some googling, it looked like he started wearing the "A" after he got out of the slammer from his drug charges. I think that was the middle of the 90-91 season. I like the idea above, ask for the "A" unattached until I can find out for sure.

yep, after he returned from his suspension he became Assistant Captain along with Gerard Gallant.

I would go ahead and throw the "A" on it... he wore it til 91-93 it seems... and can even get the 75th anniversary patch

or the 100th Stanley Cup patch as well :)

Is this an authentic you have?

Ahh stay away from that Centennial patch. It's a pretty lousy reproduction. The 75th one looks okay though.

I just posted that as an idea/quick link, I'm sure can find better ones....

If you want to take my word for it, based on my research he didn't wear the "A" until the end of the '91 season (which doesn't match your '89-'90 jersey). He also only played 4 games in '89-'90, so I doubt you will find any pictures.

Youtube is my friend. Looks like the jersey didn't have the "A", video is from october 1990. I think I'll just have them send me the letter, just in case I change my mind down the road. It was actually kind of hard to find a clear video, in most of them Probie has his jersey ripped off before you get a chance to see the front :lol: Thanks for the help guys.

On a side note, searching for "probert fights" on youtube has provided me with hours of solid entertainment :fight:
