Description du lot
Sparkling memento recalls the Montreal Canadiens’ first of a record five straight Stanley Cup titles and was done up in similar fashion to the career tribute rings which former Hab greats received long after their careers were over. The dazzling ring features a raised miniature gold Cup on the white gold tableau into which 22 diamonds are set. “Montreal” is above and “Canadiens” below, while four diamonds are at each side. An image of the original Forum is on one shank with “1955-56” engraved on a banner above. “Coupe Stanley Cup Champions” is above the banner. The opposite shank features a nice enameled Canadiens logo with “J. Plante” and his number “1” also included. Recently produced in 10-karat gold by Josten’s with all proper markings on the interior of the band, the size 10 1/2 masterpiece is in pristine condition. Great reminder of that awesome ’55-56 season which saw the Habs post their first ever 100-point season and Jacques Plante win his first of five straight Vezina trophies. The Habs allowed just 131 goals during the regular season, the fewest allowed by any NHL team during the second half of the 20th century! A letter of authenticity from the Plante family will accompany this wonderful memento.
