    1980 WINTER OLYMPICS - SET OF UNUSED USA HOCKEY TICKETS. While other nations marched their compensated hockey teams to the 1980 Winter Olympics, a humble crew of amateurs represented the Stars and Stripes. But by a series of improbable successes, the American team defeated some of the world’s best. Still in the hunt, they faced the juggernaut Soviets on February 22nd - Washington’s birthday, no less. Clinging to a 4-3 lead, the Americans would not yield as a thunderous crowd watched the seconds tick away. The airwaves resounded with Al Michael’s exuberant "Do you believe in miracles?!" That victory, one of Biblical magnitude, wasn’t even for the Gold. Two days later, almost as an anticlimax, the U.S. defeated the Finns, 4-2, to take the highest honor. Here offered is a complete set of unused tickets covering all seven of the U.S. hockey victories in that Olympiad -- from the first win against Sweden through the Gold Medal game. And for good measure, this collection also includes an unused ticket for the awards ceremony. This is a magnificent collection tracking the U.S. Hockey Team’s journey to the pinnacle of Olympic success, and all of these full tickets are Near Mint/ Mint.
