Oilers Stanley Cup Rings, Trophies Among Headliners at Classic Auctions' Winter 2023 Auction

The Edmonton Oilers made a habit of hoisting the Stanley Cup from 1984-1990.  Now, a collection of championship rings and trophies from one of sports’ greatest dynasties leads off Classic Auctions’ Winter catalog sale.
