An 86- year-old signed hockey stick from Canada's juggernaut Olympic team is on the auction block.



A remarkably well-preserved piece of memorabilia from the 1924 Olympic games in France brings back better memories for Canadian hockey fans, who saw their team lose to the United States Sunday night.
No team was more dominant in the Olympics than the team Canada sent into battle in 1924. The squad outscored its opposition108-3 in five contests.

Three Hockey Hall of Famers were part of the team and their signatures join the rest of the '24 squad on a special stick being sold by Classic Auctions.
The company's catalog sale launched during the Games in Vancouver and won't end until the middle of next month.
The stick and the '24 team were the focus of a story in the Vancouver Sun (http://www.vancouversun.com/sports/2010wintergames/Historic+hockey+stick+auction/2598674/story.html).
