The auction of 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games memorabilia being conducted in Canada continues with more to come, but some of the big ticket items have already sold.
The auction descriptions list the goals scored in the period from which the pucks were said to have been used but don’t indicate whether they were actually used in a scoring play.
A puck from the second period of the overtime thriller generated the most interest, selling for $5820.66. A first period puck brought $5442 and a third period puck generated 62 bids and sold for $5248.
A signed Sidney Crosby Olympic replica jersey ended at $6317.
Winning bids couldn’t be confirmed as of late Thursday night.
The Olympic auction has generated massive attention, especially in Canada. It’s also believed to be the first time that items used in Winter Olympic competition have been sold to the public on a large scale.
Autographed replica jerseys, pucks and special Olympic trading cards bearing the autographs of NHL stars have been among the hottest tickets. Two pucks (not game-used), signed by goalie Roberto Luongo brought $1662 and $593 each, an Alexander Ovechkin signed puck sold for $505. Four pucks from the women’s gold medal hockey game between the US and Canada sold for $403-836 each.
The auction continues on eBay.
