Goldie Goldthorpe Denver Spurs Jersey Number?


Recommended Posts

Hey, all! Hoping my sports guru friends here can help me out!

I'm looking to pick up a replica of an old WHA Denver Spurs jersey, and after seeing that Goldie Goldthorpe (Ogie Oglethorpe's inspiration in the movie Slapshot) played for the team for 12 games in 1975, I'm planning on getting his name on it.

My problem is that I can't find what number he wore while on the team. It appears that he joined the team mid-season in 1975 and left before the ill-fated end of the franchise as the Ottawa Civics in Jan '76 (because he's not in the team photo at the start of the season, and not in a Civics program I found). He appears to have worn 7, 9 and 18 on other teams (the Blades, Dusters and Fighting Saints) within a year or two of 1975.




I've been searching for hours and thought maybe the crew here would know some resources that I haven't found yet.  Thanks in advance!
