1976 Broad Street Bullies team photo, including the LCB Line
Color high quality 19 x 15 Philadelphia Flyers team photo, affixed to a 24 x 19.5 mount, of the 1976 Philadelphia Flyers team, signed on the mount in blue felt tip by twenty-four team members and club officials. Signers include: Frank Lewis, Marcel Pelletier, Gary Inness, Terry Crisp, Bill Barber, Bob Kelly, Andre Dupont, Jim Watson, Jim McKenzie, Bernie Parent, Bob Clarke, Rick MacLeish, Orest Kindrachuck, Tom Bladon, Ross Lonsberry, Mel Bridgman, Mike Nykoluk, Gary Dornhoefer, Wayne Stephenson, Joe Watson, Fred Shero, Terry Murray, Reggie Leach and one other. The Flyers recorded the best record in team history (points wise) with a record of 51-13-16 in 1975-76. The LCB line, featuring Reggie Leach, Bobby Clarke, and Bill Barber, set an NHL record for goals by a single line with 141 (Leach 61, Clarke 30, Barber 50). Clarke, on his way to a third Hart Trophy, set a team record for points in one season with 119. Heading into the playoffs, the Flyers squeaked past Toronto in seven games and defeated Boston in five games to head to a third straight appearance in the Stanley Cup Finals. The Bullies didn't come close to a third straight championship as they ran into an up-and-coming dynasty in Montreal, and were swept in four straight games. The highlight of the season had no bearing on the season standings. On January 11 at the Spectrum, the Flyers, as part of the Super Series ‘76, played a memorable exhibition game against the Soviet Union's dominant Central Red Army team. As the Bullies had put intimidation to good use the past three years, the Flyers rugged style of play led the Soviets to leave the ice midway through the first period, protesting a hit on Valeri Kharlamov. After some delay, the Soviets returned after they were warned that they would lose their salary for the entire series. The Flyers went on to win the game rather easily, 4-1, and were the only team to defeat the Red Army outright in the series. Framed to an overall size of 25 x 21.25. In very fine condition. LOA Steve Grad/PSA/DNA and R&R COA. Oversized.
