Famous players

Four Flyers players have seen their numbers raised to the rafters. The first was the number 4 of defenseman Barry Ashbee in April 1975. Ashbee had spent four seasons with the Flyers (1970-74) and sustained a career ending eye injury during the previous season. Goaltender Bernie Parent, who played two different stints with the club (1967-71 & 1973-79), saw his number 1 retired in October 1979. Bobby Clarke, the longtime captain and face of the franchise who spent his entire 15 year playing career with the club (1969-84), had his number 16 raised to the rafters in November 1984. Bill Barber’s number 7 was the last number the Flyers officially retired in October 1990. Like Clarke, Barber played his entire career in Philadelphia (1972-84). The Flyers have not issued the number 31 since the death of goaltender Pelle Lindbergh in November 1985 and is considered unofficially retired.

History

The Eagles have had their ups and downs as well as tragedy & success. The 1931 Frankford Yellow Jackets went bankrupt midway through their season.

It took over a year for the NFL to award the franchise to a syndicate for an entry fee of $2500. The Eagles name was inspired by FDR’s centerpiece insignia. The Eagles don’t claim the history of the Yellow Jackets.
