The Artifacts of Maple Leaf Gardens The Toronto Maple Leafs played the last game in their longtime home on February 13, 1999. On November 19, 2000, the team disassembled and sold off their history in a major auction of historical significance – the original Maple Leaf Gardens Auction. Rarely are the contents of a landmark building offered for public sale, particularly one of such importance to its city.
A number of items were purchased that day by collectors and have remained in private hands ever since. Now they are being offered to the mass populace once again. Items include such iconic keepsakes as the 1967 Stanley Cup banner, as well as Bill Barilko’s #5 and Tim Horton’s #7 banners, all of which hung from the rafters of the Gardens. Several huge (and heavy) Stanley Cup photo collages that graced the walls of the hallways are also up for bid. Honored Member photos from the dressing room, the penalty benches, vintage team roster plaques, framed photos, and even the locker room toilet are available to the highest bidder.
This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of Toronto sports history. Most items still have their original Maple Leaf Gardens Auction hang tags, and all items will come with their original MLG Auction Letters of Authenticity.
