'Miracle' mementoes: Olympic belongings of late coach Herb Brooks on auction block @NHLdotcom

The "Miracle on Ice" was a triumph years in the making under the careful, demanding and creative guidance of coach Herb Brooks.

Some of the documents that were part of that process are now for sale, along with a bunch of other belongings of the late hockey great.

Close to 40 lots of Herb Brooks memorabilia will be auctioned off this weekend on the 35th anniversary of the semifinal victory over the Soviet Union in the 1980 Winter Olympics.

His family decided to clear some space in their homes. They'll put the money toward college for the Hall of Fame coach's now-teenage grandchildren as well as to the Herb Brooks Foundation, created after his death in 2003 to increase youth opportunity in the sport.
