any jersey gurus here?

hey all,
i came across this jersey while going through some old things in my house, my dad told me my now deceased uncle bought it while in finland, and i was hoping someone here had some information as to what era it might be from, or even what player it was (it is number 10, no name on the back). thanks in advance!

The design is clearly from mid-eighties, 1985-87 range.

It's likely a dummy shirt since it got no name on back. I can't recall off the fly any player from that era who would have been constantly assigned number 10.

But eh, at least you got the date now, since I'm pretty certain of it at least.

I would say the year is around 1982, and the player #10 could be Lasse Litma.

It's not from 1982 specifically (at least not from the world champsionships) but it looks like it's from the early eighties. Possibly 1981. That would mean you're probably right about it being Litma.

edit: clearly not 1981 either

The Finnish Ice Hockey Museum has a few old NT shirts on display:
http://www.tampere.fi/jaakiekkomuseo/maajoukkue.htm

While it is in Finnish, the numbers and years should still make it easy enough to navigate.

While the site doesn't have that exact design, this shirt they used in Sarajevo in 1984 is the closest match: http://www.tampere.fi/jaakiekkomuseo...t/ekatakko.htm
(Edit: Well, actually, the OP's shirt just might be a 1984 olympics jersey, just the blue away version instead of that white home one.)

Anyway, by comparing the pictures it would seem appropiate that it was indeed used sometime between years 1982-1987. I'd still say closer to the latter year than former.

whats been said above is what I would have said too, I would say early to mid 80's I live in Tampere where the Hockey museum is I'm sure it could be found out the exact year for it, nice shirt though
