Jim Craig “Miracle on Ice” auction heating up as close nears

ImageThe auction for Jim Craig‘s memorabilia from the epic 1980 “Miracle on Ice” game is winding down, but the prices are definitely on the rise before the sale closes on Friday evening.

How hot? Three items from the Lelands.com sale have topped the $190,000 mark so far with his Olympic gold medal leading the way at $259,374.25 after 11 bids.

It’s also quite possible that other items from the 17-piece collection could reach into six-figures.

His blue jersey worn during the gold-metal clincher is actually much cheaper — for now — after six bids. That one is at $80,525.50. His mask worn during the Olympics also could reach into six-figures as it sits at $86,306.76 after 14 bids. His stick also is a hot item and is at $41,772.49 after 16 bids.
