Henderson jersey auction destroys records, sells for over $1 million

One of the busiest days of the hockey year that saw two women finally inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame ended with even more history being made.
The 1972 Summit Series jersey worn by Paul Henderson of Team Canada sold for a record $1,067,538 USD as the centerpiece of a month-long auction from Classic Auctions. With a 19.5% buyers premium, the final price was $1.275 million USD, a record for a sports uniform. The previous record for a hockey item was $191,200 USD for a Bobby Orr rookie-year game-worn jersey sold in April. There have been private sales greater than that, but the Henderson jersey shattered them all, including the $657,250 price tag of a Babe Ruth game-worn New York Yankees jersey from 1933 that sold in 2006.
Toronto-based Mitchell Goldhar, owner of private real estate development company SmartCentres and one of Canada's richest men with a net worth of over $1 billion, according to a 2008 list, made the 42nd and final bid. The auction started at $10,000 USD and quickly rose entering Tuesday evening to just over $300,000 USD, with the final few hours seeing the price jump almost half a million dollars.
When word began spreading last month that Henderson's jersey was going up for auction, the number of bidders interested in keeping the historical artifact in Canada kept growing and growing.
The Canadian government thought about getting involved through a special program to help fund the final auction price. Businessmen along with Molson and Canadian Tire got involved in the bidding process furthering the chance that the jersey would end up in a sports hall of fame or put on display on a tour of Canada.
There was a small fear that a trading-card company might place a bid in hopes of cutting the jersey up to insert into packs, but that was quickly alleviated when Classic Auctions president Marc Juteau told us that there was a screening process to weed out potential buyers who had ideas other than displaying it publicly or privately.
It's unsure what Goldhar's plans are for the jersey at this time, but as Henderson said Tuesday night before the auction ended, he wants it to be shared with the Canadian people:

Remember When I Told Ya Swine Flu Was A Gimmick? Told Ya!

 Pharma's Big Time Swine Flu Swindle




Remember when H1N1 was going to infect and kill everyone on Earth unless, of course, we all purchased Tamiflu©? Shocker: The scientists who drafted the WHO's governmental advisories to stockpile drugs were paid consultants to the drug's producers.
In two reports released this week—by the British Medical Journal and the Council of Europe's Social, Health and Family Affairs Committee of the Parliamentary Assembly—the World Health Organization's motives for fueling worldwide panic is called into question. The BMJ report says the WHO failed to disclose their experts' financial ties to Roche and GlaxoSmithKline, the makers of antivirals, while the Council of Europe's findings says the WHO's response was directly influenced by those companies.
WHO spokesman Gregory Hartl disputes the findings, telling The Washington Post that, "The idea that we declared a pandemic when there wasn't a pandemic is both historically inaccurate and downright irresponsible." He added that, "We feel that the guidelines produced were certainly not subject to undue influence." Of course not! What a preposterous pile of allegations. We should all just be thankful that we're even alive.
