NHL Auctions and Frozen Pond are hosting the latest edition of their auction to benefit various charities through the Joe Carter Classic Golf Tournament.
The annual tournament pairs avid golfers with top name celebrities from the worlds of sports and entertainment. Proceeds from the event go towards supporting the education and development of Canadian youth through the Joe Carter Scholarship Fund and the Joe Carter Family Support Fund.
Among the higher end items up for bid is an original Robert Stephen Simon painting of Mickey Mantle, signed by Mantle (current bid $12,000), vintage Topps and Parkhurst hockey card sets and near sets, a 2008 Tampa Bay Lightning Stanley Cup pendant with a jewel value of over $8,000, a 1993 Blue Jays Tiffany’s watch presented to team personnel, and a ‘Game Changers’ collage from Upper Deck Authenticated, signed by the two subjects, Wayne Gretzky and Michael Jordan.
There is also a Stanley Cup signed by Gretzky, a handmade and signed Patrick Roy goalie mask, a 1972 Team Russia signed stick and several Team Canada multi-signed Olympic items. A number of player banners from the 2009 Winter Classic and several unique pieces that were once on display at the Hockey Hall of Fame are also up for bid.
Dozens of autographed items from all sports are also on the block.
As the driving force behind his namesake golf event, Carter has helped raise over $1.5 million since the tournament began in 2010.
