The Vancouver Olympic Games have been over for several weeks now, but the auctions of memorabilia continue.
The latest big ticket item sold was a jersey worn by Team Canada hero Sidney Crosby in the game against Switzerland. The jersey sold for a whopping $35,100.
Pucks from the hockey competition, including those used during the gold medal game have been selling briskly. One from the overtime period brought over $13,000 despite no direct connection to a specific play.
Now, the Olympic Organizing Committee in Vancouver is selling what’s left…over 150 items at the moment including the trays used to disperse the gold, silver and bronze medals.
Are fans and collectors paying too much?
The Canadian Press delved into that side of the story and came up with some interesting comparisons.
