Miracle on Ice jersey to exceed $100,000 at Heritage Auctions?

John Harrington's US "Miracle on Ice" 1980 Olympic hockey jersey is to provide the highlight of Heritage Auctions' sport sale in Dallas on November 6-8.

The lot is valued in excess of $100,000.

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."
