    Team USA captain Mike Eruzione is set to sell his hockey memorabilia at auction, including the jersey he was wearing when he scored the winning goal to beat the Russians. He's apparently not hard up for cash, but he's trying to put a chunk of change away for his grown children and their kids. The jersey is expected to bring $1 million or more.

    Not up for auction is his gold medal.


    Henderson's jersey from the 1972 Summit Series fetched $1.2 million a coupe of years ago.

    If you had the cash, what piece of sports memorabilia would you spend $1 million or more to own?

    Would Putin buy it and wear it for his fabulous photos ops when he's MMAing Bigfoot or whatever?

    This item is part of the same auction as the Miracle jersey:


    I can see it bringing in huge money. They loves their Pack.

    There are some interesting items for sale that night:

    For the purpose of this thread, tried to think of something in the sporting realm I would spend that kind of coin on, and nothing comes to mind. Maybe the closest thing that I might entertain would be to buy a thoroughbred racehorse.

    More likely, though, if I was going to blow a big wad of cash like that, I'd probably rather do something like rent out a bar or a beach house and hire REM (with Bill Berry) to play for a small group of family and friends.
