‘Miracle on Ice’ jersey going up for auction

Posted: Updated:

It was a major moment in sports history: the "Miracle on Ice," when the US Olympic hockey team beat the favored Soviets 4 to 3 in the 1980 Winter Games.

Now some memorabilia from that historic matchup is headed to the auction block.

Among the items is the jersey and hockey stick belonging to Team USA captain and former Toledo Goaldigger Mike Eruzione.

The jersey is expected to fetch more than $1 million. The auction is set for February 23, the day after the 33rd anniversary of the game.
