Herb Brooks Game-Used Jersey Up for Auction

A jersey worn by 1980 United States Olympic hockey coach Herb Brooks will be auctioned by Nate D. Sanders on March 22. 
 
Perhaps the first Brooks game-worn jersey ever to be available on the market, Brooks wore the jersey as captain for Team USA at the 1970 World Ice Hockey Championships in Bucharest, Romania. 
 
The red, white and blue size 48 Cosby jersey features Brooks’ number 4 on its back and “USA” and a captain “C” stitched on its front. 
 
Brooks went on to coach the 1980 and 2002 U.S. Hockey Winter Olympic teams to gold and silver medals. 
 
The 1980 “Miracle on Ice” team, which was composed of unheralded college kids stunned the heavily favored Soviet Union in the semifinals of the Lake Placid Olympic games and went on to capture the gold medal. 
 
The jersey was given to Herb Brooks’ first cousin. It comes with a letter of authenticity, personal photos of him wearing the jersey and a copy of a postcard that Brooks sent to his family from the 1968 Grenoble Olympics.
 
Auction ends March 22 at 5 p.m. PST. For more information, visit http://natedsanders.com/ItemInfo.asp?ItemID=32419.
