Description

Worn throughout Olympics, inclusive of "Miracle" and Gold Medal games!

1980 Mike Eruzione Game Worn USA Olympic Hockey Team Gloves. If you're having a tough time choosing between the white jersey worn in the "Miracle on Ice" victory over the Soviet team, or the blue jersey in which the American team secured the Gold with a late surge to conquer the Finns, consider this offering the solution to the dilemma. The very heavy wear evident on this patriotic pair of "CCM" gloves suggests use dating back even before the first puck drop at Lake Placid, this almost certainly the only pair utilized by Eruzione from his first "friendly" with the American team all the way through to the earthshaking Olympic conclusion.

Stick and board burns coat the exterior of the articulated leather gauntlets, and the palms are rough and black from many hours wrapped around Eruzione's left-handed stick. Number "21" is handwritten in marker at each wrist both inside and outside, the former hazy from the effects of the salty sweat that has turned the lining brown. Occasionally a seam shows a degree of separation. If there was ever physical evidence of coach Herb Brooks' unforgiving and exhausting methodology, this is it. Though the "Miracle" was just one game, the climb to the mountain top had been months long.

Every step of that climb is etched into the red, white and blue leather of this historic pair of gloves, a testament to that staple of the American spirit that informs us that nothing is out of our reach through hard work. Letter of provenance from Mike Eruzione. LOA from Heritage Auctions.

What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
