International Hockey History For Sale
As all my regular readers know, I have a real interest in international hockey history. Classic Auctions has a number of fascinating items of exactly that genre available in their current offering.
First and foremost, check out this great game worn George McAvoy jersey from the 1955 World Hockey Championships. What a beautiful sweater that is, one that most people are not very familiar with. For a bit of a look at Team Canada's various looks over the years, be sure to check out these other game worn jerseys from Duncan Keith, Guy Charron, Zarley Zalapski and, from the 1972 Summit Series, Tony Esposito. There is a variety of 1972 Summit Series game used sticks available, too, including Paul Henderson and Ken Dryden.
Other international game worn jerseys available include Alexander Yakushev's 1975/76 Soviet Wings wool sweater, Daniel Sedin's 2010 Olympic jersey, Bohuslav Stastny's 1972 national team jersey and Jiri Holecek's 1969 World Championships Czech national team jersey. Holecek, the great Czech goalie, has a large collection of equipment available, including his famous goalie mask.
Perhaps the most interesting international offering in the auction is the actual trophy that the Edmonton Mercuries won in the 1950 IIHF World Championships. There are also a number of international medals available, including world juniors, world championships and Olympic Games.
Of course, international hockey collectors are always after pins and pennants. There is a great collection of all sorts of pins with a low price tag. I will be keeping my eye on this particular offering.

It´s strange, Holecek wasn´t on roster for WC 1969. Czechoslovakian goalies were Dzurilla and Lacky. Great stuff anyway.
