Paul Henderson and his suddenly-very-valuable Team Canada jersey from 1972 are about to be reunited, Canwest News Service has learned.This reunification is the apparently the seller's idea.
Nearly 40 years after Henderson last saw the sweater he wore when he scored the most famous goal in hockey history, the retired NHLer is scheduled to hold it in his hands again Monday ahead of a high-profile auction later this month.
“It was really important for the consignor of the jersey that Paul gets to see it,” Classic Auctions president Marc Juteau told Canwest News Service.
I'm hoping that this is good news, and that the seller has stipulations as to what happens to the jersey after it is sold - namely not allowing it to be destroyed by a hockey card company. There is an approval process for prospective bidders, although I had assumed that was just to weed out bidders who weren't serious. Perhaps the approval process also has some stipulation about the jersey's future?
