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.
