Classic Auctions, the industry leader with total sales of over $25 million worth of historical hockey memorabilia, is proud to offer for auction on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the United States’ stunning Olympic upset of the Soviet national team two remarkable “Miracle on Ice” items: a 1980 Lake Placid Olympic gold medal and the goal puck with which Mark Johnson recorded the first of his two tallies in the USA’s historic 4-3 win over the USSR.

With the world’s best Olympic winter athletes once again gathered in Vancouver, our latest historical hockey memorabilia auction features nearly 900 lots of online offerings at www.classicauctions.net.
