Does anyone know what the most expensive hockey related piece of memorabilia that has been sold is. It came up in conversation with some friends and all I could think of is the Vezina and Lalonde cards that sold for $100k each. Has there been anything else (cards, stick, jersey, etc.) that anyone can think of. Thanks.
when i talked to Brian at BMW last year i thought he mentioned that a canadian museum bought what was believed to be the first hockey stick for $250k. The stick is nowhere near like the modern sticks and its verifiability as the first stick is in question. Brian at BMW could fill us in with the details. signed fessgreg
Didn't Upper Deck purchase Vezina's skates for $200,000?
Also, there is supposed to be a lock of Vezina's hair in someone's collection that was clipped at his deathbed. What would something like that go for?
Greg, I remember a hockey stick selling for $1,900,000.00 a while back that was supposed to be one of the first ones. This was a public sale and I remember seeing it all over the PSA forums. It was said that the Hall Of Fame bought it but when I was there last time the guy said that the sale was a sham and the HOF never purchased it. I'm still confused as to the exact story behind the sale of the stick but I remember it being public at auction so I thought it was legit. I talked to Brian about it when he was in Chicago but neither of us know the exact details. Here is the thread. http://forums.collectors.com/messageview.cfm?catid=11&threadid=558775&highlight_key=y&keyword1=hockey
Damir looks like you got the info on the hockey stick. my story was kind of fuzzy because it was told to me last year and i forgot a lot of details(like the price,etc.). thanks for the info. signed fessgreg
I've seen that card in person many times. Looks amazing. Does anyone have an exact number of 66 Topps TEST cards produced or are we still trying to figure it out. I heard it was about 100 cards for each player. Maybe Bobby can chime in. That Orr will probably be the only mint TEST card out there if the pop is as low as it is. I remember on ebay a while back a 66 Topps TEST Orr PSA6 had a $6,000-$7,000 buy it now and nobody wanted it. It seems that the card was on there for a year or so before it was sold. Now a BVG/BGS 3 sells for more than half of that on ebay so I can imagine what the 6 is worth now.
I think they have more than enough money to spend over there on NHL stars. I'm sure they are just looking for the name. I think they were trying to lure Malkin away from Pittsburgh recently before he signed his extension. Reminds me of the WHA.
