  • Vintage Patch

    I picked up this 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" patch in the 80's. I believe it's some kind of Toronto Marlboroughs Junior B patch. Anybody have any information? Click image for larger version

    Looks like a patch for a jacket

      OHA is an old junior hockey league, current website is
      On Wikipedia there is a Toronto Marlboro logo that looks very similar to your jacket patch.

        I don't recall the Marlies having a Junior "B" team. I think that might be from the Markham Waxers.

          The Marlboros were established and ended long before the "Marlies" of the AHL started.
          "The Toronto Marlborough Athletic Club, commonly known as the Toronto Marlboros, was founded in 1903. It operated a junior ice hockey team in the Ontario Hockey Association and Ontario Hockey League from 1904 to 1989."

            I know that. Those of us of a certain age (who remember going to Sunday afternoon matinees at the Gardens) seldom called them the Marlboroughs or the Marlboros, but the Marlies. The Marlborough junior team (according to my recollection) was always a Junior "A" team and I opined that I did not recall the Marlborughs ever having a Junior "B" team.

            My post had nothing to do with the Marlies of the AHL.

              I'm with you. As a kid we used to be able to watch the Jr. Canadiens on Sunday nights, for two bucks a person. They played in the OHA at the time. Heck, I remember sitting in the goal judges seats in the Forum, with my hand on the light, watching the games and pressing the button on a goal.

              Players like Perreault, Richard Martin, Guevermont, Lapointe, Savard, Houle, and Tardif (if I recall correctly) among others. Looking back it is hard to believe those guys all played through that team.

            There was two Jr. B teams that used the name Toronto Marlboros in 59-60 and 68-69, You can see a program at the bottom of this site
            The name Toronto Marlboros is still used today in minor hockey.
