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.
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:
- There are quite a few items becoming available from the 2010 Olympics already, including a large selection of Team Russia game worn items.
- 45 game worn jerseys from the 1996 World Cup of Hockey, including many from the champion USA team - Mike Richter, John Leclair, Pat Lafontaine, Derian Hatcher, and Keith Tkachuk headline, but much of the team's roster is available. Granted it is still quite early in the auction, but prices are surprisingly low still.
- Of course I am forever enamoured with the old Canada Cup tournament. Alan Eagleson's 1987 Canada Cup plaque is available, as well as this rare 1991 Canada Cup championship ring.
- There are also several interesting Valeri Kharlamov related items.Valeri Vasiliev's 1980 silver medal, and a large collection of medals won by Vasily Pervukhin are amongst the other gems to be found.
