There are pieces of sports memorabilia, and there are pieces of sports memorabilia from the “Miracle on Ice.” Perhaps the greatest piece of memorabilia from that unforgettable sports moment can be yours for a small price. Mike Eruzione, captain of the 1980 Team USA that defeated the Soviet Union in the famed “Miracle on Ice” game at the 1980 Winter Olympics, is putting his game-worn jersey from that game up for auction. The expected price for that seemingly priceless piece of sports history? One million dollars. Eruzione, who scored the game-winner against the Soviets, is selling the jersey from that game as well as the stick he used to score the famous goal. The 58-year-old is also selling his jersey from the gold medal game against Finland. The stick is expected to fetch “only” $100,000, while the gold medal jersey, which comes in a trendy blue as opposed to the sharp white from the Miracle game, can be yours for the small price of $200,000.
