The U.S. “Miracle on Ice” victory over the Soviet Union at the 1980 Winter Olympics still has a big time payoff, with game memorabilia pulling in a cool $1.3 million.

The jersey worn by Mike Eruzione was auctioned for almost $660,000 and spirited bidding drove the value of the hockey stick he used to score the winning goal to nearly $263,000.  Gloves, warm up suits and pants made up the rest.
