Classic Auctions Winter 2018 Auction Results

Classic Auctions Winter Auction 2018 Closes in 2 Weeks – Ends February 27, 2018

Classic Auctions Winter 2018 Auction offered stellar results, with numerous items closing much higher than anticipated. This was, without a doubt, the best auction Classic Auctions has had in the past eight years! Our market is very strong for quality right now, much better than years past. This month-long auction received thousands of bids on the 900+ items that were available for auction.

Items from the Paul Coffey Collection were of great interest, as were the Ed Belfour and Eric Lindros Collections and the 2005-06 Upper Deck ”The Cup” Hockey Card Sidney Crosby Autographed Rookie Patch. Traditionally hot items, including vintage hockey cards and game-used equipment, were in high demand, as were big ticket pieces such as championship rings and trophies.

Paul Coffey Collection 
The premier item was the 1994-95 Detroit Red Wings Game-Worn Stanley Cup Finals Alternate Captain’s Jersey, which sold for $5 499 (with buyer’s premium).  The jersey, which features the Stanley Cup Finals patch, was one of many items from Paul Coffey’s personal collection.  Some other high performing items from the collection included:

Sports Cards
What a night for hockey card collectors! These results will garner attention in the hobby forums for weeks to come! Not often do you see such a fine line-up of scarce and amazing graded cards! 2005-06 Upper Deck “The Cup” Hockey Card #180 Sidney Crosby Autographed Rookie Patch RPA #90/99 Beckett-Graded Mint 9 reached some lofty figures (sold for $58 888 with BP). Two more cards caught the attention of bidders : 2015-16 Upper Deck “The Cup” Hockey Card #197 Connor McDavid Autographed Rookie Patch RPA #17/99 Beckett-Graded Gem Mint 9.5 (sold for $30 216 with BP) and 2005-06 Upper Deck “The Cup” Hockey Card #179 Alexander Ovechkin Autographed Rookie Patch RPA #04/99 Beckett-Graded Mint 9 (sold for $23 546 with BP). Vintage cards also received a lot of action, including the 26 bids for 1966-67 Topps Hockey Complete 132-Card Set with Bobby Orr RC (sold for $8 674 with BP).

Game-Worn Jerseys
Our Winter 2018 Auction featured well over one hundred game-worn modern, vintage and goalie jerseys. The George Gosselin Whitby Dunlops and Belleville McFarlands Team Canada Collection featured historic wool jerseys, including:

Jerseys from the 1960s and 1970s performed very well, as did the more recent jerseys. Highlights included Sidney Crosby’s 2008-09 Pittsburgh Penguins Game-Worn Stanley Cup Playoffs Captain’s Jersey (sold for $18 291 with BP), fellow Penguins Ron Schock’s 1974-75 Pittsburgh Penguins Game-Worn Captain’s Jersey (sold for $18 998 with BP), and other Pennsylvanian rival Eric Lindros’ 1997-98 Philadelphia Flyers Game-Worn Captain’s Jersey (sold for $5 229 with BP).

Game-Used Sticks
Hockey fans young and old certainly remember the era before graphite sticks, and collectors showed their appreciation for the value and history of these highly sought after items.  Some of the highlights of the several dozen sticks featured in our Winter 2018 Auction included Maurice Richard’s 1955-56 Montreal Canadiens “452th Goal” CCM Game-Used Record-Breaking Goal Stick (sold for $6 057 with BP).  Gretzky items sold for lofty numbers including Wayne Gretzky’s December 19th 1998 New York Rangers Signed Hespeler Game-Used Stick from Last Game in Maple Leaf Gardens (below,sold for $7 168 with BP), and HOFer legend Gordie Howe’s Early-1960s Detroit Red Wings Northland Game-Used Stick (sold for $2 681 with BP).

Others
Although Classic Auctions is the largest hockey auction site in the world, we do offer interesting items from other sports as well.

Items from the NBA, CFL, NFL as well as auto-racing and boxing were featured and highlights from this auction included aBabe Ruth Signed Official National League Ford C. Frick Baseball, which sold for $6,057 with BP.  Good activity on the Pete Rose’s 1984 Montreal Expos Signed Game-Worn Jersey (sold for $5 384 with BP) and CFL fans will love that Angelo Mosca’s 1972 Hamilton Tiger-Cats Grey Cup Championship 10K Gold and Diamond Ring (sold for $7,688 with BP) went to a good home.

Rings, Awards and Trophies
Always a popular category with our collectors, we offered a good number of rare treasures in gold and silver. For instance, the Spectacular 1928-29 George Hainsworth’s Montreal Canadiens Vezina Trophy (16”) (sold for $40 220 with BP) was a very active auction, as was Bernie Nicholls’ 2011-12 Los Angeles Kings Stanley Cup Championship Tiffany & Co Sterling Silver and Diamond Ring (sold for $29 462 with BP).

Gretzky
When milestone mementos from the Great One become available, it’s always interesting. But when you have the record-breaking puck up for auction, it’s an event by itself! Wayne Gretzky’s October 15th 1989 “1851st Point” Milestone Record Goal Puck with Letter of Provenance (sold for $20 121 with BP).
