Eruzione to Auction Off Historic Jersey

NEW YORK (AP) - Mike Eruzione is

putting his jersey, stick and other Olympic paraphernalia up for sale. The

58-year old who scored the winning goal against the Russians in the Lake Placid

Olympics, says he is selling the objects to raise money for his children and

grandson. The auction will take place in New York on Feb. 23, the day after the

historic win over the Russians. The U.S. went on to win the gold with a win

over Finland.

The white jersey alone is expected to

fetch more than $1 million, but sports memorabilia experts think it could go

considerably higher.
