Description

As David vs. Goliath tales go, few are more epic than that of the 1980 USA Olympic Hockey team's Gold Medal conquest. Having shocked the Russian team, 4-3 on February 22, the American heroes proceeded to best Finland, 4-2 two days later to win the Gold. The offered photograph is autographed by (19) of the "Miracle on Ice" principals. Measuring 20x16, the color print reveals an image of the USA players in jubilant celebration after their triumph over Russia. (By all accounts, the Gold medal victory two days later was anti-climactic as many erroneously cite the win over Russia as the Gold medal game.) In blue Sharpie, the signatures project ("9-10") strength throughout, as most emerge prominently against the stark white background of the ice. Includes: Baker, Broten, Craig, Christian, Christoff, Eruzione, Harrington, Johnson, McClanahan, Morrow, O'Callahan, Pavelich, Ramsey, Schneider, Silk, Strobel, Suter, Verchota and Wells. Accompanying is an auction LOA from James Spence Authentications.
