Game-worn gear used by Connor McDavid is on the block via MeiGray Auctions. The company, which has the exclusive rights to sell items associated with the Edmonton Oilers’ young superstar, is offering skates, sticks, a helmet and socks in an online auction that opened late last week.
McDavid, who was the third youngest player to win the Art Ross trophy as the NHL’s leading scorer last season, is again on pace to score 100 points in 2017-18. The 2015 #1 pick also captured the Hart Trophy as league MVP last season. He began the 2017-18 campaign by becoming the first Oilers player to record a hat trick on opening night.
Headlining the auction is a helmet worn during the 2017-18 regular season and Stanley Cup playoffs. It includes McDavid’s #97, the Oilers logo, the NHL Centennial decal and an Oakley shield. It opened with a $3,500 bid.
Also on the block is a pair of McDavid game-worn skates from a game early against the Washington Capitals early in the 2017-18 season ($2,000 opening bid); a stick used early last season against the Flyers ($1,000); items used during an on-ice segment shot for a network TV story and five pair of game-used socks.
Each item is tagged prior to use and entered into the MeiGray Authentication program database to maintain a permanent record.
McDavid will turn 21 two days after the auction ends on January 11. You can check out the listings at MeiGrayAutions.com.
