Amazingly, only one piece of memorabilia from the 1980 "Miracle on Ice" Olympic hockey game between the United States and the U.S.S.R. has ever been sold at auction. That item—a gold medal—sold for $310,000 at auction back in 2010. And now, you can add this game-worn jersey to the list.
The jersey, which was worn by four-time Stanley Cup winner Ken Morrow during the "Miracle on Ice," was recently sold for $104,328 at an auction in Quebec. After years of keeping it on a hangar in a closet inside his house, Morrow put it up for auction because...well, because he knew he could catch a nice payday by doing it.
"There's just so many things you can do with that," he said shortly after auction.
Yeah, we'd probably rather have the $100K, too. Good choice.
