Wayne Gretzky’s last Edmonton Oilers jersey sold for a record 1.452 million

Second, controversial, 1-of-1 Tom Brady Rookie cards sold at auction for 396,000

Wayne Gretzky’s last Edmonton Oilers jersey, worn in the 1987-88 playoff run in Edmonton, which won him his fourth of five Stanley Cup titles, was auctioned on Sunday night for 1.452 million (including buyer’s premium). Sold out.

This was the highest honorarium ever for a hockey jersey. The previous record was $ 1.3 million, which was filled by Canadian hero Paul Henderson’s 1972 Summit Series jersey.

The top of the uniform was worn during the controversial Game 4 of the 1988 Stanley Cup final against the Boston Bruins, with less than four minutes left in the second period, to tie the Edmonton series 3-3-0. The Boston Garden above – the power went out. The game was canceled and resumed two days later, which Edmonton won 6-3.

Gretzky, once Edmonton won, had his puck-and-stick-scuffed jersey dipped in champagne, which still appears on the uniform today.

He was also awarded his second Con Smith Trophy for his playoff MVP performance; Gretzky, who has won two Con Smith Trophies, is still one of only five NHL players.

About three months later, Gretzky traded to the Los Angeles Kings.

At the same auction, Gretzky’s gloves from the same Stanley Cup-cleaning game sold for 4 204,162.
