Lot #114

This road white air-knit gamer by Reebok was worn by Antti Niemi during the 2012-13 NHL season. This native of Vantaa, Finland played a handful of seasons in his home country before making his NHL debut in 2008-09 with the Chicago Blackhawks. The hockey world took notice during Niemi’s first full season in 2009-10 as Antti became the starting Goalie, playing in all 22 playoff games while leading Chicago to their first Stanley Cup Championship since 1961. During that memorable run, Niemi recorded two shutouts and won all 16 of the Hawks playoff games. During the off-season that followed the Cup win, Niemi and the Hawks were unable to come to terms and Chicago’s Stanley Cup hero became the new man between the pipes for the San Jose Sharks. Niemi spent a handful of years in the Shark Tank before going on to represent Dallas, Pittsburgh, Florida and Montreal. All told this Goalie spent 11 seasons between the pipes in the NHL.

Sewn to the left breast of this gamer is the “George” patch. The game wear on this regular season set size 58 Goalie Cut sweater is solid and consists of stick, slash and puck marks, goal post paint transfer, heavy cuff pilling at both sleeves, additional exterior pilling and inner pilling. Shown above is a beautiful photo match of Niemi wearing this exact jersey during the 2012-13 season. Affixed to the inside hem is the official San Jose Sharks game worn jersey and set tagging. A beautiful patched and photo matched gamer worn by this Stanley Cup winning goaltender.
