2003-04 Mark Mowers Detroit Red Wings Game Worn Jersey – “37 Dan Snyder Memorial”
Lot #159
This home red air-knit gamer by Koho was worn by Mark Mowers on New Year’s Eve during the 2003-04 NHL season. This Decatur, GA native played his college hockey at the University of New Hampshire before beginning his NHL career in 1998-99 with the Nashville Predators. After spending three seasons with Nashville, Mowers played for the Red Wings for a couple of years and then finished up his NHL career with a year in Boston and a finals season with Anaheim. In 2007-08, Mowers ventured to Europe and joined the Swiss-A league where he played for four seasons.

Sewn to the right breast of this gamer is the Dan Snyder Memorial patch. The Thrashers visited the Red Wings on New Year’s Eve in 2003. As a tribute to Dan Snyder, both teams wore the commemorative patch and then auctioned the jerseys for charity following the game. The Red Wings won the game 6-5 in OT on a Henrik Zetterberg goal. The game wear on this size 54 sweater consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, un-repaired burn holes and pilling. Mowers has penned a beautiful black sharpie signature on the back player number. On the inside hem is the official Detroit Red Wings game worn jersey tagging that indicates the date of the game as well as the Dan Snyder Memorial Scholarship. A numbered Hockeytown hologram is also affixed. It’s now been more than 17 years since these jerseys were originally worn and auctioned, with this being the first example we recall appearing at major auction since that time. A tough to find patched example that would enhance any Detroit Red Wings or patch collectors’ collection of gamers.
