Description

Seat from the Lake Placid arena, signed by the 'Miracle on Ice' USA hockey team

Original arena seat from the immortal 'Miracle on Ice' hockey game between the United States and the U.S.S.R. during the 1980 Lake Placid Winter Olympic Games. The seat has been signed in black felt tip by 19 members of that famous U.S. squad, including Mike Eruzione, Jim Craig, Ken Morrow, Mike Ramsey, Mark Johnson, Rob McClanahan, Dave Silk, Bill Baker, Neal Broten, Dave Christian, Steve Christoff, John Harrington, Steve Janaszak, Jack O'Callahan, Mark Pavelich, Buzz Schneider, Eric Strobel, Bob Suter, and Phil Verchota. Removed from the Herb Brooks Arena around 2014, fewer than ten of these seats were autographed by the team members.

This upstart American squad famously beat the heavily favored Soviet Union team in the 'Miracle on Ice' on February 22, 1980—one of the most memorable sporting events of all time. Team USA came back from a 3-2 deficit in the third period, led by a game-winning goal by captain Mike Eruzione. The victory was immortalized by Al Michaels' famous call: 'Do you believe in miracles? Yes!' The American team would go on to win the gold medal against Finland.
