Wayne Gretzky memorabilia auction opens today

Shawn Chaulk's extensive Wayne Gretzky memorabilia collection is to auction at Montreal's Classic Auctions from today (May 17) to June 18.

Chaulk, who has previously compared collecting hockey memorabilia to smoking crack cocaine, has amassed a remarkable collection of jerseys, pucks, sticks and autographs all relating to Canadian hockey legend Wayne Gretzky - aka The Great One.

The Great One’s 500th goal jersey is to cross the block along with pucks, stick, helmets and skates

Gretzky played 20 seasons in the National Hockey League for four teams, from 1979 until 1999 - winning four Stanley Cups with the Edmonton Oilers in the 1980s.

Among the items on offer, one stands out: The Great One's 500th goal game-worn jersey, which he also wore throughout the Oilers' playoff run to the 1987 Stanley Cup. It is estimated to be worth $25,000.

Chaulk told his hometown publication Fort McMurray Today that 500 goals "is one of the most exclusive milestone clubs there is in the NHL," adding: "But Wayne also kept wearing that jersey and was wearing it the night they won the Stanley Cup as well. So it's one jersey with multiple milestone events tied to it."

Gretzky's 500th goal skates, replete with scuffs, are expected to bring $10,000.

Gloves, cups, and helmets worn during playoff victories and regular season games are also to cross the auction block, while Gretzky's Nike tracksuit and equipment bag are estimated at $400 and $500, respectively.
