Jim Craig is ready to sell his personal collection of 19 items from the “Miracle On Ice” 1980 Olympics, including the gold medal he earned with his work between the pipes for Team USA.
The items will be available for private sale from August 1 to November 1, 2015 and if you want the medal itself, that will cost you $1.5 million. The entire collection comes with an asking price of $5.7 million. The cheaper items on the list are a 1980 Team USA Olympic Winter Coat, 1980 Team USA Pre-Olympic Jacket, and National Sports Festival Warm-Up Suit, which each come with a $5,000 asking price.
Some of the other big ticket items include the American flag Craig wore on his shoulders following the States winning the gold medal and his jersey from the USA-Soviet game ($1 million each).
As NBC Olympic Talk noted, he’s the third player to sell his gold medal from the 1980 men’s tournament. Mark Wells auctioned his off for $310,700 in 2010 while Mark Pavelich got $262,900 last year in an auction.
You can head to Lelands.com for the sale.
