Team Canada Olympic Hockey Jersey Auction Brings Gold Medal Prices
Olympic fans worldwide saw plenty of action from the 2014 Sochi games, and hockey was again among the favorites. As they did in 2010, Team Canada again gave fans and collectors a chance to own authentic Olympic game-worn jerseys.
Bidding was fierce for these unique collectibles, and boosted because Team Canada again took home gold medals in both men's and women's hockey. This makes an impressive two straight gold medals for the men's team and an incredible four consecutive gold medals for the women's team.
Featuring jerseys from the entire roster, superstar Sidney Crosby topped the men's jerseys sales total, and the gold medal game hero, Marie-Philip Poulin, was the top-selling women's jersey. Crosby did not exceed his $34,452.30 jersey sales amount from the 2010 Olympics, but easily led the pack.
Even with 46 total jerseys, none of the men's jerseys sold for less than $1,000 and the women's jerseys all topped $775.
