At least one Canadian had the capacity to spend over $2 million on a piece of hockey history and still buy the family some nice Christmas presents.
A children’s charity came up the big winner as a piece of 19th century hockey history was sold at auction. The "world’s oldest hockey stick" brought $2.2 million at a well-publicized auction.
Gord Sharpe, 45, who has been in possession of the family heirloom since he was nine, was relieved when he learned that the buyer was a Canadian. There were 26 bids submitted from around the world and inquiries were fielded from such places as Dubai, Australia and Germany.
