Unique memorabilia auction underway.

Here’s a one-of-a-kind piece of hockey memorabilia that doesn’t hit the auction block every day: Ken Morrow’s game-worn jersey from the “Miracle on Ice” game at the 1980 Olympics.

Miracle on Ice

From the Classic Auctions press release:

Classic Auctions is honored to offer the Ken Morrow Collection, which also features the U.S. Olympic team track suit Ken wore at the gold medal ceremony in Lake Placid as well as game-used “Miracle on Ice” equipment, including the rugged defenseman’s skates. The auction will close exceptionally on Wednesday, February 22, 2012, in honor of the 32nd anniversary of this landmark event in international hockey history.

The minimum bid is $44,799 – it’s unclear whether this is U.S. or Canadian dollars – and the high bid was a tad short ($40,726) as of Saturday afternoon.

For comparison’s sake, the auction-sale price of a few other hockey artifacts through the years: Paul Henderson’s 1972 Team Canada “The Goal” game-worn jersey ($1.275 million), Bobby Hull’s 1961 Stanley Cup ring ($85,000), a Jean Beliveau game-used hockey stick from 1971 ($17,500) and Beliveau’s 1957 Stanley Cup trophy ($42,000).
