History of the Stanley Cup

The Stanley cup's different looks through the years.

The Stanley Cup is then championship trophy awarded annually to the National Hockey League’s (NHL) playoff champion.

It’s the oldest trophy awarded to any league’s champions in North America. Making its first appearance in 1892 as the Dominion Hockey Challenge Cup.

The Stanley cup is named after Lord Preston of Stanley, the Governor General of Canada. Lord Preston donated it to be awarded to Canada’s top amateur ice hockey team.

Professional teams

Professional hockey teams could first compete for Lord Stanley’s cup in 1906. The National Hockey Association (NHA) and the Pacific Coast Hockey Association (PCHA), the two top hockey leagues at the time, reached an agreement that each league’s champion would face each other for the trophy.

Similar to the first Super Bowl’s pitting the NFL vs. the AFL champions. The Stanley Cup became the de facto (a state of affairs that is true in fact, but that is not officially sanctioned) trophy for the NHL champion in 1926.

In 1947, it became the de jure (a state of affairs that is in accordance with law (i.e. that is officially sanctioned) championship trophy of the NHL.

The original Stanley cup bowl was made of silver. The current version is topped with a version of the original bowl and made of silver and nickel alloy.

Unlike other championship trophies, a new Stanley Cup isn’t made each year. Teams used to keep the trophy until a new champion was crowned. The team then displays a Stanley Cup replica in any personal or organizational trophy cases.

Today the Cup winners only keep the NHL championship trophy throughout the summer and a limited number of days during the following season. With the cup returned to the league offices.

Measurables & Bands

The Stanley Cup team bands. Most Stanley Cup Replicas don't have these.

The current Stanley Cup has a height of 89.54 centimeters (35.25 inches) and weighs 34.5 pounds.

The current version of the NHL trophy was made in 1958. The modern one-piece Cup was designed with a five-band barrel which could contain 13 winning teams per band.

Since 1924, a select portion of the winning players, coaches, management, and club staff names are engraved on the cup’s bands.

 Every 13 years when the bottom band of the Stanley Cup is filled with names of champions, the top band is removed and retired to be displayed in the vault of the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto.

The four bands below it are slid up one place and a new blank band added to the bottom. The first winning team engraved on the newest band is thus, in theory displayed on the trophy for the next 65 years.

Sports Vault Stanley Cup Replica

Summary

It all depends on what you’re looking for and what’s your price range. You will get good value for the money with this replica.

It’s still a good size at 14″ but isn’t close to real size like the 25″ Cups.

You won’t get the bells and whistles either but you will get a sticker for each NHL team to display on the cup if you choose to.

All in all you can’t go wrong with this model if you’re on a budget.

Summary

I’m giving this 5-stars but I wouldn’t buy any of these because none of the teams are my team.

I would seriously consider buying this if the Philadelphia Flyers had won a recent Stanley Cup.

What makes this a unique collectible is that this is the actual ice that these teams played on in the Stanley Cup Finals.

Making this a possible investment for the future. Unlike autographed memorabilia like autographs, if the athlete is alive, more can always be produced.

Especially in this market today. There is only a very limited amount of ice from any of these Stanley Cup Finals that can be sold.

If you didn’t notice the 2019 St. Louis Blues aren’t among the offers. They don’t sell them anymore.
