John Harrington played right wing for the US hockey squad in the 1980 Olympics

Harrington played right wing during the legendary game, which pitted an outgunned US against the might of the Soviet national team.

Incredibly the US triumphed, snatching a decisive victory in the third period that has gone down as one of the greatest sporting moments of all time.

Last year Heritage set a record for an Olympic uniform when it sold captain Mike Eruzione's jersey in New York.

The house comments: "That jersey set bidder paddles fluttering to the tune of $657,250, by far the highest price ever paid for an Olympic uniform article.

"The appearance of a third Miracle jersey in a two-year period must not mislead any collector into believing that another will surface any time soon, as all available examples could still be counted on a single hand.

"It is a piece that matches the intrigue and importance of any artefact on display in the Hall of Fame or the Smithsonian Museum, and a reminder that, with hard work and determination, anything is possible."
