A day after a collectibles company official announced the company would auction off what it believed to be the game-used jersey of guard Willie Worsley from Texas Western's 1966 national championship season, Worsley himself insisted a mistake had been made.
Owning the jersey worn by a favorite player is the goal of many hockey fans. Owning a Hall of Fame-caliber jersey worn while that favorite player set a personal milestone, on the other hand, is an unreachable dream.
After a brief delay, it is expected that the Fleer Redemption Card Program will be sold and finalized on Friday, January 13. The buyer, New Jersey dealer Ara Arzoumanian of Ara Collectibles, will reportedly pay $400,000 for the remaining inventory. Once the purchase is final, Arzoumanian will be monitored closely to ensure the program is fulfilled as planned.
