The WHA's All Star Game was hardly filled with tradition. Ever-changing league fortunes meant a different format for the annual mid-season classic every year. They tried the most common format of East versus West four times. They tried a Canada-US showdown once, a 3 game series against the Moscow Dynamo which the WHA swept, & also experimented with the Avco Cup champions taking on a team made up of the league's other stars. '74 All Star Game - Cleveland, OH. The annual all-star game was one of the few bright spots it had going for it at times, nearly always a sell-out and a good draw on tv when they got exposure.

WHA all star game jersey .................................$225.00

Made from heavy game weight mesh exactly like the pro jerseys in the 1970's. This jersey features all sewn logos numbers and letters from the same companies that letter the jerseys you see on major leagues sports teams. This is a high end piece of sports apparel. But don't just take our word for it. Former WHA all star Hugh Harris ( pictured below) said: "This jersey is one thousand times nicer than the one we wore in the all star game." Thank you for the compliment Hugh!
