Sidney Crosby’s overtime goal in the 2010 Winter Olympics gold medal hockey game created some instant history.
So what’s his stick worth? Well…they have to find it first.
It’s like Bill Mazeroski’s home run ball or the one hit by Bobby Thomson to win the 1951 National League pennant.
A history-making sports moment with a little mystery attached.
Sidney Crosby’s game-winning goal against the United States last Sunday turned his stick, the winning puck and anything else he touched that day into valuable sports memorabilia.
Once Crosby scored to clinch the gold medal for Canada, excitement caused him to toss his stick in the air. In the bedlam that ensued, the stick…well…disappeared. At least no one seems to know where it is at the moment.
While hundreds of other game-used items from the Olympics are being sold online through an an online auction, Sid the Kid’s weapon of destruction is not sitting in a glass case somewhere.
The story is in the New York Times.
