Leading into the 1973-74 NHL season, the upstart Philadelphia Flyers had established themselves as a hard-nosed, physical group that was willing to play rough to win.  Adding goalie Bernie Parent during the offseason helped solidify their roster, and Parent established himself as one of the game's greatest goaltenders, teaming with Bobby Clarke to lead the team to a 50-16-12 record and topping the West Division.  The team blasted their way through the playoffs, squaring off against Bobby Orr's Boston Bruins to win the Stanley Cup, 4 games to 2.  The 1973-74 Flyers were the first expansion team to win the Cup, and the team remains adored by Philadelphia fans, even today.

Presented is a complete set of signed pucks from the members of the Flyers' championship team.  With 22 pucks in total, nearly all feature the white Flyers logo with the player signature in gold sharpie, with the exception of Bernie Parent, who signed a puck with a black logo, and Bill Clement, who signed on the black side of the puck.  Each of the pucks are in outstanding condition, having been stored away for years.  Each puck is encased in a plastic puck holder, as seen in the photo.

Included in the collection are the following:  Bill Barber, Tom Bladon, Bobby Clarke, Bill Clement, Gary Dornhoefer, Andre DuPont, Doug Favell, Bill Flett, Larry Goodnough, Bob Kelly, Orest Kindrachuk, Reggie Leach, Ross Lonsberry, Rick MacLeish, Bernie Parent, Don Saleski, Dave Schultz, Wayne Stevenson, Bobby Taylor, Ed Van Impe, Jim Watson, and Joe Watson.

This is a very unusual collectible, a complete set of 22 members (missing are a few minor players who played hardly any games with the team, along with defenseman Barry Asbee, in the last year of his career, who passed away of leukemia in 1977).  An incredible display and fantastic document of one of the Flyers' most memorable seasons, their first post-expansion Cup.
