The top bid placed was for $611,000, according to Adam Miller, speaking on behalf of Lelands. Bidding for the medal failed to reach the minimum reserve. The medal carried an estimate of $1 million to $1.5 million.
Three other top lots in the 17-lot sale — the jerseys Craig wore in the semi-final upset game against the Soviet Union and gold medal game against Finland, and the American flag Craig draped over his shoulders following the game against Finland — also failed to meet reserves. All three had top estimates of $1 million or more.
The 13 lots that did sell realized just over $290,000.
