There are many unknowns in the sports memorabilia world, the market shifts regularly and values can quickly spike or decrease. Authentic Sidney Crosby memorabilia is well-known for growing over years,
Sidney Crosby memorabilia has proven to be a smart investment for sports collectors. Item after item sells for great prices. In a 2010 charity auction, a hockey fan purchased a one-a-kind game-worn Team Canada Sidney Crosby jersey. A piece of hockey history doesn’t come cheap, the rare Crosby jersey sold for a total of $37,100. The jersey was one of 140 Olympic hockey jerseys that went up on auction between May 11th and June 15th last year and all proceeds went to the Hockey for Haiti foundation. The jersey was worn during Team Canada’s qualification victory against Germany, a game that Canada won easily with an 8 – 2 score. This joint effort between former NHLer and Georges Laraque, World Vision, and the NHLPA raised some much-needed funds for humanitarian work. The sports memorabilia auction also auctioned game-worn jerseys by USA players such as Patrick Kane and Ryan Miller.
This Sidney Crosby jersey sale wasn’t really anything new at the time, game-worn Crosby jerseys have always been a hot-selling item. During a 2007 charity auction in support of Hockey Fights Cancer, Sidney Crosby’s first all-star jersey was auctioned to generate funds for the charity. The jersey was eventually purchased for $47,520 USD. Overall, the online charity auction generated a total of $140,397. Hockey Fights Canada is a joint effort between the NHL and the NHL Players’ Association with the mission to raise money and spread awareness of cancer. At the time of the Crosby jersey auction, the charity had raised a total of over $9 million. The online auction also saw a game-worn Brendan Shanahan jersey sell for $5,681 and a Martin Brodeur jersey go for $5,020. Hockey fans were impressed to see jerseys from NHL superstars including Ryan Miller, Rick Nash, Joe Sakic, Eric Staal, Daniel Briere, Roberto Luongo, and Vincent Lecavalier.
Today’s market for Sidney Crosby game-used memorabilia is as strong as ever before. A quick search on eBay produces lots of exciting items such as a game-used hockey stick ($7,500) and a game-worn jersey from Crosby’s rookie season (priced at $50,000).
