Very few players in NHL history have had a career on par with Mike Bossy. The NY Islanders sharpshooter of the 80s is arguably the most prominent natural goal scorer the game has ever seen, amassing 573 goals over a shortened 752-game career - not to mention the four Stanley Cups over ten years.

Bossy passed away in April of 2022, leaving a plethora of memorabilia from his junior hockey days to his final NHL game, and now some of those collectibles can be had for a price.

According to Ethan Sears of the NY Post, Bossy split his treasures between his two daughters, Josiane and Tanya, knowing Josiane would sell her share at auction and Tanya would keep her half.

"What he wanted was for me to do what I wanted with my past and my sister to do what she wanted," Josianne told Sears. "My dad valued a lot, being respectful of other people's decisions. So she respected my decision, I respected hers."

For any Islander fan interested in memorabilia, the extent of the items available for auction is incredible. You can bid on items like Bossy's 1991-96 signed Canadian Passport, game-used sticks, Stanley Cup rings, and even his 1991 Hall of Fame blazer.

One of the coolest, most unique items available for auction are Bossy's license plates from the 80's in Quebec and New York. An Islander from the day he was drafted until the day he died, Bossy's New York plate reads "ISLESONE." The current highest bid is $310, with a guide value of $600.

Though many items may be out of the price range for many average fans, it's pretty outstanding to see all of the accomplishments of one player in front of you, especially one with a shortened career. The craziest part - this is only half.

Some of the items are available for bid for three more days with more items becoming available afterwards.
