2003-04 Mikko Koivu TPS Turku Game Worn Jersey Pre-Rookie Photo Match
Lot #211

This black air-knit gamer by Bauer was worn by Mikko Koivu during the 2003-04 SM-liiga season. The Minnesota Wild selected Koivu with the 6th overall pick in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. After playing in his native Finland for a handful of years, Koivu made his NHL debut in 2005-06 with the Wild. This Center now has 15 NHL seasons to his credit, having spent all of them with the Minnesota Wild. In fact, Koivu has spent 12 consecutive seasons as the Wild Team Captain. On the international stage, Mikko has represented his native Finland in numerous World Championships, the 2004 and 2016 World Cups of Hockey and a couple of Olympics.

Sewn all over this gamer are the sponsorship and SM-liiga patches. The game wear on this size 56 sweater is tremendous and consists of numerous stick and slash marks, loads of board burns, board paint transfer, un-repaired burn holes and trauma and pilling throughout. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Koivu wearing this exact jersey during the 2003-04 season. Mikko wore this sweater as a member of Turku TPS throughout his final season in Finland before coming to North America while just 20-years of age. A pre-rookie hammered and photo matched example of longtime Minnesota Team Captain Mikko Koivu.
