The skates were worn by Craig against the Soviet Union in what was the greatest upset in the history of sports. The USA captured the gold medal the next game after beating Finland.

They’re worth every single penny. They’re worth every single penny by a country mile. If I had a free $100,000 floating around, I’d spend it in the same fashion.

As you all know, I’m a huge Miracle on Ice guy. I talk about it nonstop and I love collecting stuff from the game.

I already have a signed Miracle on Ice jersey and that’s why I totally understand dropping money on the skates.

I mean, if you own the skates worn by Jim Craig during the Olympics, then they should dominate every conversation you have.

Whenever anybody comes over, you have to focus on Craig’s skates. After all, what’s the purpose of buying them if you aren’t going to show them off?

Let us know in the comments if you would have spent that kind of money! There’s no doubt I would have.
