NHL Auctions has a big list of A-list stars who have signed pieces of memorabilia to help with the league’s diabetes fundraiser.
The National Hockey League will hold an on-line auction featuring a variety of signed hockey memorabilia to benefit the Canadian Diabetes Association (CDA). A poster from the film, "Miracle," signed by the entire 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team, is among the items that will be available at the NHL Auctions website.
The on-line auction also will include the following authentic hockey items from Frozen Pond Inc. of Toronto:
*Maurice "Rocket" Richard Signed Montreal Canadiens Jersey
*Steve Yzerman’s Signed 1984 NHL All-Star Jersey
*Gordie Howe Framed Autographed Jersey
*Wayne Gretzky Autographed Jofa Hockey Gloves
*1972 Team Canada Framed Signed Photo Display
*Game-used Mike Bossy Hockey Stick
The on-line auction coincides with the NHL Awards Show, which also benefits the Canadian Diabetes Association. For more than 23 years, the NHL Awards Show, which honors the exceptional performances of its best and brightest stars of the regular season, has raised more than $3.5 million for the Canadian Diabetes Association in support of diabetes research and education.
The on-line will begin on June 13 and will conclude on June 27.
