This jersey comes to us from the personal collection of a prominent European-based international hockey
official.

This pro-weight jersey was manufactured by Nike and is similar to the jerseys worn by the Swiss national team
at the IIHF's 1997 Pool A World Championships, which were held in Helsinki, Finland.  The jersey features
sewn-on name and numbers and has a fight strap.

This special jersey was used by the IIHF to honor forward Richard "Bibi" Torriani, when he was inducted into
the IIHF Hall of Fame as part of the inaugural class of 1997.  Torriani played for Switzerland in the 1936 and 1948
Olympics and the 1934 World Championships.  Along with Hans Cattini and Pic Cattini, Torriani was part of
Switzerland's "Ni-line", which was one of the best forward lines in Europe from 1933-1947.
