Mike Eruzione to Auction Off Miracle on Ice Gear, Plans to Keep Gold Medal (Video)

During the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, one of the greatest upsets in the history of sports competition occurred.

If you’re a hockey fan it suffices to say you’ve heard about the Miracle on Ice, and if you have a few extra dollars lying around you could literally own a piece of the history. Team captain Mike Eruzione is auctioning off most of his equipment — including both of his jerseys and the stick he used to score the game-winning goal against the Soviet Union — that he says has just been sitting in his attic. Apparently, the gold medal, itself, is the only piece of memorabilia Eruzione needs for himself.

Check out a feature on Eruzione and the auction in the video above.
