He’s on the verge of making hockey history and now, more game-worn and game-used items from NHL superstar Connor McDavid are up for auction.
The partnership between McDavid, the Edmonton Oilers and MeiGray Auctions has already produced three such events and this week, a fourth McDavid-exclusive auction got underway with sticks, gloves, a helmet and even pairs of game-used socks expected to draw significant interest from hockey collectors.
While the Oilers won’t be making the Stanley Cup playoffs, the 21-year-old McDavid has been brilliant. He recently passed 100 points for the season; the second time in his three-year career he’s reached that milestone. He is on course to win his second straight NHL scoring title and could become the first to win back-to-back Art Ross Trophies since Jaromir Jagr in 1997 and ’98.
Items up for bid include the stick McDavid used in early March when he scored his 30th goal of the season; a helmet worn in numerous games from October 21 to November 24; five pairs of home and road socks and the gloves he wore during a video shoot for stick maker CCM.
Bidding is underway and will continue through April 12.
In the last 15 months, 32 McDavid items have sold for $1,000 or more through MeiGray with eight of those selling for $3,000 and up.
