    1955-1980 Herb Brooks University of Minnesota Sweater & Blanket and 1980 Notre Dame Blanket Lot of 3. Long before the Miracle on Ice, and even before his own playing career with the NHL and Team USA, Herb Brooks was a star for the University of Minnesota. Although they did not win a championship, he would return as coach in the 1970's and lead them to three NCAA championships. Offered in this lot are two extremely early pieces of Brooks memorabilia--a 1950's Minnesota letterman sweater and a 69x82" Minnesota wool blanket. The "M" on the blanket is showing some fraying, but otherwise both items are in excellent condition.

    Also included is a 62x80" blanket presented to Brooks by the University of Notre Dame congratulating him on his 1980 Olympic victory. Blanket includes the Notre Dame logo in the center and emblazoned on one corner is the wording, "To Coach Herb Brooks - Congratulations from the Fighting Irish on your victory in the Olympics 1980." Excellent condition. Letter of provenance from the Brooks family.

    I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with the results of the auction. Friday night was a blast. I had a hard time sleeping I was so pumped up.
