2003-04 Esa Pirnes Los Angeles Kings Game Worn Jersey - Vintage Alternate – Rookie - Photo Match – Team Letter
Lot #126

This purple and gold vintage alternate was worn by Esa Pirnes during the 2003-04 NHL season, his rookie year. The Los Angeles Kings selected Pirnes in the 6th round of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. This native of Finland spent nearly a decade playing professionally in Europe before coming to North America. Esa made his NHL debut with the Kings in 2003-04, his only season in the NHL. In 2004, Pirnes returned to Europe where he played until 2016.

Sewn to the right breast of this gamer is the Vintage “V” patch. Pirnes wore this sweater during the November 15, 2003 contest against the St. Louis Blues. The game wear on this 1st set size 56 sweater is on the lighter side as would be expected. Shown above is a beautiful photo of Pirnes wearing this exact jersey during the aforementioned game during the 2003-04 season. Sewn to the inside hem is the official NHL game worn jersey tagging. This jersey will be accompanied by a Kings team letter.
