from foxsports.com – Bidding will start at $62,500, but it will likely fetch much more.
This is actually the second “Miracle on Ice” medal to be auctioned off. Mark Wells sold his to a private buyer for $40,000 in 2010, who then was able to sell it for $310,700. Wells suffers from a rare genetic spinal cord disease and needed the money to pay for his medical treatment.
Pavelich on the other hand is not in any financial trouble.
I don’t believe for 2 seconds that Pavelich doesn’t need the money. You don’t just go off selling a national treasure for no reason. I’m pretty sure right now I could scrap together $600, but it looks like I need another $62,000 to bid. Currently accepting donations.
