Kari Kinnunen’s ice hockey glove
This hockey glove made by Karhu was used by the defender Kari Kinnunen in the 1960’s. Kinnunen played for three Helsinki-based clubs in the Finnish championship league: Karhu-Kissat, HJK and Jokerit.
The leather glove, serial number 1623, was probably acquired in the mid-1960’s. These gloves were first introduced in Karhu’s product catalogue for the 1964-65 season.
