1980 XIII Olympic Winter Games Complete Set of "Miracle on Ice" Hockey Tickets (8)
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,380.00
Complete set of eight full unused tickets from the 1980 Lake Placid Winter Olympics USA Hockey series. This was the legendary Olympic Hockey series in which the underdog U.S. team, coached by Herb Brooks, shocked the world in 1980 by winning the Olympic Gold. The young group of college kids, mostly from Massachusetts and Minnesota, were victorious over the powerhouse Russian team in one of the sporting world's most stunning upsets, led by Captain Mike Eurzione's game-winning goal. In the next round, they came from behind to beat the Finland team to win the Gold Medal. This amazing achievement was voted the sporting event of the century, and inspired the current Disney movie Miracle. Presented here is a complete set of full, unused USA tickets from that legendary 1980 "Miracle on Ice" Olympic tournament. The tickets include (dates in parentheses): USA vs. Sweden (2/12); USA vs. Czechoslovakia (2/14); USA vs. Norway (2/16); USA vs. Romania (2/18); USA vs. W. Germany (2/20); USA vs.USSR (2/22); 2/24 vs. Finland; and Awards Ceremony (2/24). Very few tickets from this historic series were not used, and kept in this perfect form. The fact that tickets are now beginning to be encapsulated and graded by major grading services may give these already highly valued keepsakes an additional potential dimension of interest to collectors in the future. Total 8 tickets. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $1,380.00
