Description:
Worn during the Gold Medal ceremony!
1980 Mike Eruzione Gold Medal Ceremony Worn USA Olympic Team Sweatsuit. The team captain stands on the top podium, arms extended above his head, fists clenched, as the American fans in the tiny Lake Placid arena roar their approval. It's one of the most memorable images of the "Miracle on Ice" drama, and you'll recognize this distinctive red, white and blue velour warm-up uniform as the outfit Eruzione sported as he first felt the weight of Olympic Gold around his neck. The iconic photograph, documenting the realization of a dream as improbable as any in the history of American sports, assures that this jacket and pants will forever elicit that same burst of patriotic pride that swept the nation on February 24, 1980 as the anthem played for the USA Olympic hockey team for the first time in twenty years.

The jacket bears a patch over the heart announcing "USA 1980 Olympic Team," balanced on the right by a "Levi's" and "Ice Hockey" label in smaller format. Verso proudly asserts "USA" in three inch white and red block lettering. Interior collar is tagged "Made Exclusively for the USA 1980 Olympic Team by Levi Strauss & Co, [size] M/R." Matching pants feature identical exclusivity label at interior waistband, with size "32x30" designation. Zippered pockets, with "Levi's" label at left hip.

Fine condition, with no flaws worthy of note. Photograph (8x10") of Eruzione on the medal stand is included. Letter of provenance from Mike Eruzione. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
