His kids are grown and Hockey Hall of Famer Ray Bourque recently downsized with a well publicized estate sale that included household goods, jewelry, clothing, some autographed jerseys and other items.
Now, he’s unloading some of the stuff that will likely be of interest to serious collectors.
Classic Auctions announced Wednesday that Bourque had consigned a variety of items to their Fall Auction including game-worn jerseys, championship rings, trophies and awards, some milestones sticks and more. The top items will come with a signed letter of authenticity from the man who holds NHL records for most career goals, assists, and points by a defenseman.
Bourque, now 58, was an All-Star in every season of his career in which the game was played.
A complete list of items he’s consigned will be made available later but we do know it will represent his long career with the Boston Bruins and final years with the Colorado Avalanche along with some items from his appearances in international competition for Team Canada.
Specific items revealed so far include:
*1999-2000, 2000-01 Colorado Avalanche Game-Worn Jerseys
*1989 NHL All-Star Game 10K Gold and Diamond Ring
*2003 Lester Patrick Award Trophy
*1996-97 Boston Bruins 1,000th NHL Assist Trophy
*1981 Canada Cup 10K Gold and Diamond Ring with His Signed LOA
*1985-86 Boston Bruins Elizabeth DuFresne Trophy (Most Outstanding Player in home games)
