Jerseys worn by the US Olympic Hockey team are up for auction.
MeiGray is offering 26 game-used and game-issued jerseys from Team USA from the competition in Beijing. Proceeds from the auction benefit the USA Hockey Foundation.
The U.S. Men’s Olympic Team wore the white jerseys on Feb. 12, 2022, a 4-2 victory over Canada.
There was one set of navy, one set of white, and one set of royal blue jerseys manufactured by Nike and prepared for use. The sets of jerseys were collected after each game by Team USA’s equipment staff. Each jersey offered in auction has been security-tagged with an individually serial-numbered USA Hockey-MeiGray Authentication Program inventory tag.
The white jerseys were worn in one game, the set of navy jerseys in two games, and the set of royal blue jerseys in one game. MeiGray will sell both the white and royal blue jerseys. The players retained the set of navy jerseys.
The U.S. lost a 3-2 shoot out to Slovakia in the quarterfinals, finishing fifth.
The auction runs through April 14.
Drake seems pretty serious about this trading card thing.
He hosted Goldin Auctions founder Ken Goldin for a break of some big bucks boxes late Sunday night at a private room inside a restaurant in the famed rapper’s hometown of Toronto.
First up was a box of 1986-87 Fleer Basketball, which yielded the typical haul of three Michael Jordan rookie cards and three MJ rookie stickers.
They also tore through multiple cases of Flawless Basketball as Drake continued his hunt for the 1/1 LeBron James Triple Logoman card and some 2003-04 Topps Chrome Basketball.
Some of the cards that were pulled are headed for grading and will then be sold through Goldin later this year with Drake donating the proceeds to charity.
Passionate Oakland A’s fan Robb Roberts is a big backer of the franchise and its long history and shows it off in his Galt, CA office.
He owns game-used items and just about anything else you can think of. Not only does he collect A’s bobbleheads, he makes them himself, partnering with former players on occasion to help them raise money for various charities.
Rollie Fingers is among the former players who’ve paid a visit. The Sacramento Bee caught up to him to discuss his hobby—and his frustration with the team.
