A Rocket jersey can have an A or a C on the front depending on the year.
No letter at all if you want it to be the 1945 (50 in 50) year
A C if you want it to be 1960 (his last year and the 5th straight cup)....
So really you shouldn't put any name on a habs jersey with a number 9 on it... No Richard, No Gardener, No anything.
Same for a #4 Beliveau.... it shouldn't have his name stitched on it.
Beliveau and Richard never wore their names on their jerseys.
