    The "Miracle" mastermind's personal hardware!

    1980 "Miracle on Ice" Olympic Hockey Ring Presented to Coach Herb Brooks. It's the third example of this gorgeous symbol of achievement that Heritage has had the honor of presenting, with those issued to players Mark Pavelich and Mark Wells commanding $35,850 and $21,510 respectively. We'd consider this to be the most significant of all rings issued to that celebrated pack of underdogs, the one worn by the man who gave birth to the greatest moment in American sports history.

    The ten karat yellow gold prize features five real diamonds set in a blue stone on the face, encircled by raised text reading "USA Olympic Hockey Gold Medalist." Left shank holds Brooks' surname and crossed sticks and puck imagery framing the logos of the Lake Placid Games. The right shank features hockey iconography, the year "1980," and the final scores of the USSR semifinal and Finland final matches. The interior band is engraved with the scores and opponents in the earlier rounds of Olympic competition and a scripted "Miracle on Ice." Stamping of "Balfour 10K" is here as well. Band measures to a size nine and a half (9.5). Flawless condition. Letter of provenance from the Brooks family.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
