Hockey great Eruzione jersey scores $660K at Heritage auction
Chris Ivy of Heritage Auctions said the No. 21 jersey went for $657,250 on Saturday. The stick Eruzione used to score the winning goal sold for $262,900, more than five times its pre-sale estimate. The buyers' names were not immediately available.
Eruzione wore the jersey when he scored the win in the come-from-behind 4-3 victory. The outcome in Lake Placid, New York was surprising because the US team was largely made up of amateurs playing against a Soviet team of professionals widely considered unbeatable.
The 33rd anniversary of the historic game was Friday.
