The items up for bid are Canada’s ‘black’ jerseys that were worn at the 2006 Men's World Hockey Championship in Riga, Lativa for one game: May 9th, 2006 in Canada's game vs. USA, a 2-1 win for Canada. Only three sets of jerseys were worn by each Team Canada player in the Championship – one set of red jerseys, one set of white jerseys and one set of black jerseys.
