Our oldest find was this 1926 extremely rare book. Listed on UsedVictoria.com, the Hockey Book of Champions includes virtually every Stanley Cup Champion from 1893/94 through to 1924/25, Memorial Cup Champs, Olympics winners, Collegiate Champs, Allan Cup Champs, Pacific Coast Champs, Women’s hockey and more. Great find for the hockey fanatic.
Don’t ever let it be said that the items on our sites are not eclectic. First we bring you vintage sports books, then we throw in a couple of Barbies. UsedRegina.com is currently home to the 2002 winter Olympics Fire and Ice Barbie, whilst UsedVancouver.com lists the 1988 Calgary Olympics Skating Barbie. For all you would-be Barbie collectors, don’t be ashamed. Our sites are completely anonymous!
We found more than one set of Olympics Bobbleheads. Nanaimo and Regina you will be pleased to know that you are the lucky cities that have them listed. These 2002 Bobble Dobbles on UsedNanaimo.com are Olympic team members, Brodeur, Lemieux, and Sakic. Regina yours too are 2002 team members, but this time Foote and Blake. Remember when bobbleheads were the coolest thing ever? Hard to believe the 1990s are now retro!
Want an Olympic hockey memorabilia but can’t stand the thought of torturing your bobblehead dachshund with competition? These Olympic hockey stickers from 97/98 on UsedOttawa.com should be framed!
Just one glance at this vintage snowmobile can tell you it’s a 1970s’ design. As the seller on UsedPEI.com says, his loss is your gain. He even provided you with a photo of what your skidoo could look like were you to completely restore this piece. This is a real collector’s item. It’s not necessarily Olympics memorabilia as such but it’s too cool not to list. Do the right thing PEI, grab this while you can!
There is a lot of Olympics memorabilia in Victoria! So many glasses you could open a bar and enough pins to build a pin house, but these 1984 Olympic plates are pretty special. Collectible and cool, put them on your wall in true 80s’ fashion. Only 1000 of these plates were made and they are in pristine condition; a small slice of history.
If you have Olympics memorabilia you wish to sell, now is the time as it’s topical and people are keen to buy. Do your research, price competitively and you should have a sale in no time.
