NEW YORK (AP) – The 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team’s victory over the Soviet Union is forever remembered as the “Miracle on Ice.”

Now the goaltender of that gold medal-winning team, Jim Craig, is parting with his most prized items from one of the greatest sporting moments of the 20th century.

Estimated to bring between $5 million and $7 million, the 17 items are being offered through the online auction house Lelands.com.

The sale went live Tuesday and ends June 17.

Items include Craig’s gold medal, with a pre-sale estimate of $1.5 million to $2 million.

Other highlights are the jersey he wore during the Soviet game, and the American flag that was draped over his shoulders after the team’s victory at Lake Placid. Both carry estimates of $1 million to $1.5 million.

The items are being sold individually after Lelands was unable to sell the entire collection last year.
