    1956 Gene Campbell United States Winter Olympics Hat from The Gene Campbell Collection. This eye grabbing hat belonged to the U.S. hockey player Gene Campbell when he participated in the 1956 Olympics. The cold weather offering has a U.S. hockey emblem and shows good wear. No breaks or tears present. Letter of provenance from the family of Gene Campbell. LOA from Heritage Auctions.

    More Information: The Gene Campbell Collection.

    Born and raised in the hockey-crazy state of Minnesota, Campbell rose to acclaim as a member of the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers, where his play drew the attention of the U.S. Olympic team coach John Mariucci, who assigned Campbell the role of captain of the 1956 squad. The United States would finish second to the mighty Soviet Union in the ten-team tournament, claiming the Silver Medal.

    This remarkable collection, consigned to auction by the Campbell family, is anchored by the jerseys Campbell wore in Cortina d'Ampezzo, as well as several other garments related to those Olympic Games and his service to American amateur hockey in general. Each will be accompanied by a letter of provenance from the Campbells.
