The Vancouver Winter Olympics memorabilia currently being auctioned off on the Internet is more than just collectibles, it’s an investment, according to one auction house.

Mike Cadji, who works for Autographed Authentic, which is not involved with the auction, said the Olympic items are likely to go up in value because they can’t be reproduced.

“The Winter Olympics were historical, a lot of the hockey players I spoke to say this is as big as (Paul) Henderson’s goal, maybe even greater.”

He also said the best buys are game-worn jerseys.

“From my experience game-worn is worth more than the autographed stuff. Especially something like (Sidney) Crosby’s game-worn stuff.”
