Paul Henderson’s $1.2 million hockey jersey is the most expensive ever auctioned

Two years ago, the jersey worn by hockey genius Paul Henderson when he shot the winning goal at the 1972 Summit Series against the Russians was sold for a record-breaking $1.275 million. Now, auction house Classic Auctions that had the jersey under the hammer has received a certification from the Guinness World Records for sale. Marked as the most expensive jersey ever sold, the auction has pushed Henderson up the sporting legends ladder. However, Guinness has classified the sale under a hockey section for accuracy reasons. Bought by real-estate tycoon Mitchell Goldhar, the Number 19 jersey with “Canada” proudly printed across will go down in history.
