Description

One of the greatest moments in American sport would have to be the 1980 United States Hockey Team winning the Olympic Gold Medal. In February of 1980, huddled on home ice in beautiful Lake Placid New York, the overachieving, seventh-seeded US Hockey team fought against history and overwhelming odds to defeat the Russians in one of the greatest games ever played. The celebrated ABC announcer, Al Michaels shouted, “Do you believe in miracles,” as the final seconds ticked away and answered his own question with a resounding “yes” when the horn finally sounded. Almost anticlimactically, the gritty US team won the gold medal two days later against a tough Finnish team, 4-2. Offered are three unusual collectibles to remember this triumphant event, a signed March 3, 1980 Sports Illustrated, a December 22-29 Sports Illustrated (First Run Copy) and a framed 19” x 25 ½” blow-up SI cover featuring the US Hockey Team. Each piece has special consideration for the collector, the autographed March 3, 1980 SI has eight US Hockey Team signatures (EX) and the December SI double issue is a rare “First Run Copy” issued as a true commemorative relic (VG). Sports Illustrated issued the large framed image of the Miracle on Ice team to important media agents; this one was presented to the Avon Tennis Championship in 1980 for their continued support and advertising dollars. For the list of signatories on the March 1980 Sports Illustrated please visit our website.

The list of eight gold medal winning US Hockey Team members that signed the March 3, 1980 Sports Illustrated includes: Eric Strobel, Bill Baker, Phil Verchota, Buzz Schneider, Bob Suter, John Harrington, Mark Wells and Mike Ramsey.
