Game-used and game-worn memorabilia from hockey’s Winter Classic at Wrigley Field is under the auction direction of MeiGrey.
NHL Auctions and The MeiGray Group are selling off every puck used to score a goal in the recent Winter Classic II game between the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks at Wrigley Field.
Yesterday, we reported on the sale of jerseys worn by the Wings but now, it appears much more will be available to collectors.
Here’s what’s up for bid from the game–with the auction live now:
· The 20 jerseys worn by the Red Wings during the second period.
· The 20 jerseys worn by the Blackhawks during the second period.
· The 5 jerseys prepared for the Red Wings who did not play in the Classic.
· The 3 jerseys prepared for the Blackhawks who did not play in the Classic.
· 5 game pucks with the unique Winter Classic 2009 logo used in the game.
· Each of the 10 pucks unique Winter Classic 2009 logo used to score the goals scored in the game.
· 6 practice pucks with the unique Winter Classic 2009 logo used by the Red Wings during their outdoor practice on the Wrigley Field ice on New Year’s Eve day.
· 10 practice pucks with the unique Winter Classic 2009 logo used by the Blackhawks during their outdoor practice on the Wrigley Field ice on New Year’s Eve day.
Each item was authenticated by an NHL-MeiGray Group Game-Worn Jersey Authentication Program director in the stadium immediately after they were used. Each jersey has been security-tagged, serial-numbered, and registered into the NHL-MGG Population Report.
The teams each wore four sets of jerseys during the Winter Classic. The set worn in the team photograph taken before the New Year’s Eve day outdoor practice was given to the NHL Players Association. The set of jerseys worn in the first period was given to the respective organizations. The set of jerseys worn in the third period was awarded to the players for their participation.
Fox Sports Detroit’s Ken Daniels reported that Brett Lebda of the Wings had hoped to get the puck he used to score a goal on the field normally used for Cubs games in the summer, but will instead have to bid on it like everyone else.
