Comstock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — The jersey worn by ice hockey player Mike Eruzione 33 years ago in the United States’ win over the more experienced Soviet Union in the 1980 Olympics has sold for over half a million dollars.

The jersey that Eruzione wore “Miracle on Ice” victory at the Lake Placid Olympics that day went up for auction and sold for almost $660 thousand. Eruzione has said he’s not hurting financially, but he wanted to leave a little nest egg for his family and a charity in his hometown of Winthrop, Massachusetts.

The gold medal, on the other hand, won’t be sold as long as he’s alive, Eruzione said.
