Fabulous 10-karat gold ring by Birks from the 1964 Toronto Maple Leafs Stanley Cup victory was originally obtained from a family member of the late Bruce Draper, who played only one season on the Maple Leafs. Luxurious ring adorned with large diamond on top within a Maple Leaf, surrounded by the words, “Stanley Cup Champions.” Left shank is Stanley Cup trophy; right shank is “Toronto 64.” The 1964 Stanley Cup finals birthed one of the greatest hockey stories of all time. Defenseman, Bobby Baun of Toronto scored the winning goal in Game 6’s overtime, playing on a broken ankle after being carried off the ice on a stretcher. That goal tied the series against the Detroit Red Wings 3-3. Refusing to get the ankle X-Rayed, Baun played again in Game 7. Only after the Toronto Maple Leafs won the game and claimed the Stanley Cup, did Baun get the ankle checked out, whereupon it was confirmed that he had played with a broken ankle. LOA.
