At the heart of this auction lies the legacy of Gordie Howe, with standout items like his game-worn jersey from the 1976-77 season with the WHA’s Houston Aeros. This iconic jersey symbolizes a pivotal moment in hockey history and provides a tangible connection to the legendary player’s career.

Beyond traditional sports memorabilia, the auction offers a glimpse into the personal side of Gordie Howe, with items ranging from cowboy hats to fishing rods and golf shoes. Each item tells a unique story, providing fans with a more intimate look at the man behind the hockey legend.

The auction extends beyond Gordie Howe, incorporating memorabilia from his sons, Mark and Marty Howe, adding layers to the family’s legacy. Championship rings, game-used gear, and personal belongings enrich the collection, providing a comprehensive view of the Howe family’s impact on the hockey world.

Additionally, the auction features personal correspondence from prominent figures like Brian Mulroney, Gerald Ford, and Richard Nixon, shedding light on Gordie Howe’s influence beyond sports.
