The movie jersey crest doesn’t look like a pinhead to me.  It looks more like a rare variant crest only used on a couple of gameworns around 88/89 (when the movie was being filmed) which looks like this:

Hawks crest

The above crest looks more like the movie one than the pinhead does:

And I’d agree with HockeyBob; if you found one as rare as this, you wouldn’t want to commit a crime against the hobby and screw it up by making a Griswold jersey out of it.  

There was one of these on Ebay or maybe somewhere else awhile back.  Not to long ago.   I tried to make a deal with the guy but communication was lacking.

Tbh, I’m really not sure on this at all.  It seems unlikely they would use an authentic with a rarely seen crest in a movie, but then again I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a replica with that kind of crest either.  I wish that picture of Chevy Chase on the stairs was clearer so we could see the details better.

I wouldn’t be surprised if it ended up in Chevy Chase’s closet.

I picked up a red one back in August that has the same crest, shoulder patches and double elbows and the fight strap. 
Mine has a Crosby stamp on the left hem and small block CCM on the right.

The movie was on last night and I think the best shot of the jersey details were the images that LAK74 and Brilliant posted.
I didn't see anything showing the hem or if there was a fight strap.

My best guess is it was a retail jersey from the mid 80's

Didn't CCM have kind of a hybrid authentic-replica jersey in the '80's?  The jerseys have double shoulders and double elbows, but no fight strap.  I don't remember ever seeing a Hawks version, but it almost sounds like this.  Double elbows, but a crest and shoulder patches you see more with a replica. Maybe it is something weird like this.

Here is a pic that shows the back.  I don't really see a fight strap.  Other interesting thing is the incorrect font and I don't think there is a nameplate that was used.

So if you want to be on-film accurate, you would have to be on-ice inaccurate.

I have a Leafs one like this.  Double elbows, but no fight strap, with a thin, replica-like crest, and shoulder patches which were heat-pressed but not stitched down.

Funny enough. I delivered a mattress to his Westchester home back in the 90's when I was a kid working for 1800Mattress 

Only person home at the time was a spanish maid.

Oh so your the reason his communication with me stopped.. Those were only worn for a hot minute I believe.  Well if you want to move it you know who will buy it.

I remember that. 

I also remember when you could call up 1800Mattress and ask them to deliver a mattress COD. Or possibly 10 mattresses to your high school principal's house. Allegedly.

I remember the name, but not any jingle associated with it. 

Here’s one we should all know:

800-588-2300...Empire, today!
