Description



In the wake of expansion that doubled the NHL’s participants from the “original six” to 12, the Chicago Blackhawks were thwarted in their bid for Stanley Cup laurels, bowing to eventual champion Toronto in the 1966-67 semi-finals. The offered prize was crafted for what “could have been” that spring for the league’s leading goal scorer, Bobby Hull. Encased in an 11”-circumference acrylic globe, this salesman’s sample ring proclaims Stanley Cup supremacy for Hull and the Hawks. The facing reads “66 67 NHL CHAMPIONS” in raised letters and is accented by a blue-colored stone. The left shank is home to a relief trophy likeness and a scroll on which “B HULL is engraved. On the opposite shank, a scroll with an engraved “CHICAGO” identifier resides atop an image of the club’s Native American-themed mascot. This is a unique and gorgeous relic simultaneously celebrating an “original six” legend and the dawn of NHL expansion.
