1980 US OLYMPIC HOCKEY TEAM - PHOTOGRAPH SIGNED CO-SIGNED BY: JIM CRAIG, MIKE ERUZIONE, BILL BAKER, JOHN HARRINGTON, STEVE JANASZAK, JACK O'CALLAHAN, ERIC STROBEL, KEN MORROW, MARK JOHNSON, PHIL VERCHOTA, CRAIG PATRICK - HFSID 283873

 
OLYMPICS: 1980 USA HOCKEY TEAM
Eleven team members signed this photo of the triumphant aftermath of their victory over the Soviet team.
10x8 Color Photograph signed by 11 members of the 1980 Gold Medal-winning USA hockey team: "Mike Eruzione" (captain), "John Harrington #28", "Mark Johnson", "Eric Strobel #19", "Phil Verchota", "Bill Baker #6", "Ken Morrow #3", "Jack O'Callahan", "Jim Craig", "Steve Janaszak #1" and "Craig Patrick"(Assistant Coach). In February 1980, the US Olympic Hockey team defeated the heavily favored Soviet team in the semi-finals of the Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York, going on to beat Finland for the gold medal. The US team, composed of college and amateur players (though several had futures in the NHL) came from behind twice to defeat a Soviet team which had won the gold at all of the last four Winter Olympics, going 27-1-1 over that stretch. Although technically amateurs themselves, the Soviet players had far more experience, and had been regularly beating teams composed of players from the NHL. The US team came from behind to win 4-3, and as time expired, breathless sportscaster Al Michaels exclaimed, "Do you believe in miracles! Miracles on ice." Pravda did not report the results of the game, and the Soviet players did not turn in their silver medals to have their names inscribed. Sports Illustrated printed this photo on its cover of March 3 without caption. Everyone in America knew what it represented. Some consider this the finest moment in the history of American sport. Fine condition.
