There are some hockey players whose playing days left unforgettable prints in the sands- or, let’s say, ice of time. Items used by these players have gone on to be worth large amounts of money. Here are some hockey players with expensive pieces of memorabilia.
Gretzky is the most famous hockey player in history. He led the Edmonton Oilers to four Stanley Cup victories. An autographed jersey from his ‘85-‘86 season sold at a 2006 auction for $30,000.
Esposito was a rookie with the Blackhawks in the 1963-1964 season, but his jersey that year was sold for $35,850 at an auction in 2010. Memorabilia are worthy investments if you’ve got the patience.
In 1939, Goodfellow was hockey’s hottest star. He won the Stanley Cup for the Red Wings an astounding three times. His jersey for the 1939 All-Star match is valued at $30,000.
Orr helped the Bruins to two Stanley Cups and held the record for the most points earned by a defenseman. In an auction in 2008, an autographed jersey of his was sold for $115,000.
This phenomenal hockey player wore only three jerseys during his entire rookie season with the Bruins, and one of them sold at a 2010 auction for $191,000.
In the 1980 Olympic hockey games, the United States defeated the six-time champions, the Soviet Union, to win the gold medal. Mark Wells, who was a player on that team, had his medal sold for a whopping $310,700 in an auction in 2010.
In 1972, Canada and Russia organized the Summit Series. During the eight-game series, Paul Henderson’s performance on the ice performed brought Canada honour. As a result, the jersey he wore during the final four games is a national treasure and went for $1.27 million at an auction in 2010.
