A large auction of items from the estate of Mr. Hockey are now on the block in an auction that will raise money for charity.
Over 140 items are listed in the “Personal Effects of Gordie Howe Auction,” which is being conducted through Frozen Pond Inc. They include seats from Olympia Stadium, commemorative jerseys he wore during special events, autographed hockey items that once hung inside his home, clothing, golf equipment and other memorabilia. The listings represent the first items from Howe’s estate to be auctioned since his death at age 88 nearly three years ago.
Among the items are a jersey, jacket and fedora he wore during the opening faceoff for the 2014 NHL Winter Classic alumni game, a button-down sweater he wore during a well-known beer commercial in 1980 and a cowboy hat he was given after being named a Houston Aeros Player of the Game in the 1980s.
All proceeds go to the Howe Foundation, which aims to get children involved in sports and promotes women working in sports business.
The auction closes on May 29.
