Jim Craig, the goaltender from the famous hockey win against the Soviety Union in the 1980 Olympics is selling some of his cherished memorabilia for a hefty price tag of a combined $5.7 million, ESPN has reported.
Some of the more valuable items he’s selling include his game-worn jersey, his actual Olympic gold medal, and the American flag he donned after the defeat of Finland in the final game. These items each are valued to be at $1 million.
Craig has decided to sell the items that were previously featured in different museums after the 35th anniversary of the games to “protect his family’s legacy.”
Other members from the historic team have sold their memorabilia as well for hefty price tags but don’t close to making the record for highest priced Olympic swag ever sold.
According to ESPN, the most expensive Olympic memorabilia to ever be purchased was the $1.46 million gold medal won by Jesse Owens in 1936.
