With only hours left in the Steiner Auctions, we take a look at some final pieces of interest. Goal sticks from Martin Brodeur’s personal collection. Some of these sticks were game issued for special events and some were used during game wins.
All the game used sticks are from from the same year so the stick models are the same. Each has been marked with the win it is from. A serious collector STILL knows the additional research that can be done, such as: Who cataloged the game date on the stick? Was it Marty himself or possibly an equipment manager? Whoever it is, it looked like they had originally got the number of shutouts wrong on the Win 545 stick and had to correct it. Did Marty keep a stick from each one of his wins? Did he at one point have 691 sticks in his home?
