Two days after beating the Soviet Union in the "Miracle on Ice," on February 24, 1980, the Americans played in the gold medal game at the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York.
Team USA beat Finland, 4-2, by coming from behind with three goals in the third period to win the gold. Phil Verchota, Robby McClanahan, and Mark Johnson each scored in the third to give the Americans their first gold medal in hockey since 1960.
This full ticket to the event includes the "Playoff & Awards" and has been signed by 19 players of this Gold Medal winning team, all members except Bob Suter, who died in 2014, and is the only player from this team to pass away. These signatures are all boldly signed in black Sharpie, many with corresponding jersey numbers. There is no shortage of demand for items related to this magnificent team which captured the hearts of all Americans.
One of the most memorable sporting events in American history was witnessed LIVE by thousands, except for this ticket owner, but the lack of attendance has created the ultimate 1980 US Hockey team collectible: this multi-signed ticket. Encapsulated in a PSA/DNA authentication holder.
