This is a Mark Messier game-used TPS Response Plus stick. It is one of the 11 sticks that Mark used on March 31, 2004 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, his last NHL game. The blade is autographed by Messier in silver paint pen along with "3/31/04" to signify the date of the game. On the game video you can see Mark signing and dating the sticks in the locker room prior to the game, and the book A Celebration of The Captain also has a picture and caption which indicate that the sticks were signed before being taped up for use. In one of the pictures below you can see the signature on the blade through a hole in the tape. Under the name box on the shaft, there is a "3/2" written in black marker. According the Mark's sister this was written on all of his last game sticks, possibly to indicate the date that this batch of sticks was received by the team. The handle tape still remains intact, but the blade tape has been removed to show the signature. This stick was won from Mark Messier's Skyway charity auction through Steiner Sports, and has a COA from Steiner Sports signed by Brandon Steiner.
