More 1972 Gems Available

Classic Auctions will be forever synonymous with the famous million dollar sale of Paul Henderson's game worn sweater from game 8 of the 1972 Summit Series.

Well they're back, with more 1972 items including another game worn gem.

Yvan Cournoyer's game worn sweater is available. Already there have been 10 bids and the auction is running at over $30,000. I suspect the final price will see that number rise significantly, but it should still be a bargain in comparison to Henderson's.

Speaking of Henderson, now you can get his gloves and stick from the series, beautifully laid out in a display case. The gloves were worn in game. The stick, autographed by many of the players, was also used throughout the tournament, but no, it is not the stick used to score "the goal." It's running at $3,000 right now. By the way, this item would make for a wonderful Christmas gift for me should any readers be planning to surprise me.

Perhaps the most interesting 1972 item available is Denis Brodeur's photo negatives, including copyrights, of his famous photo of "the goal." There are 17 images included here, but it is the lucrative copyrights that will make this auction the item to watch in the current auction. Brodeur is also throwing in the Nikon camera he used to capture the iconic images.

The offering by Brodeur (yes, he is Martin Brodeur's father) is already running at over $17,000.

Regular readers all know I have a soft spot for international hockey. Other Classic Auctions items available that I found of interest include:
