With Frank Mahovlich, Dave Keon, Tim Horton and 8 other future Hall of Famers on the Maple Leafs' powerhouse roster—plus HOFer Punch Imlach behind the bench—no one would've guessed that lesser-known Bobby Baun would end up stealing the show and making Stanely Cup history. But the hard-hitting defenseman took a Gordie Howe slapshot to the ankle in Game 6, left the ice on a stretcher with a broken leg, refused to go to the hospital, and returned in overtime to score the dramatic winning goal. Oh, and by the way: Baun continued to decline treatment so he could play in Toronto's triumphant Game 7, too. The other hero of Game 6, Bob Pulford, set up Baun's goal and had two goals and one assist—not to mention saved Game One with a winning goal of his own just before the clock ran down.

This ideal keepsake from that three-peat Stanley Cup championship showcases beautiful Near Mint condition and a 65-point diamond seated on the Maple Leaf emblem. Surrounding raised lettering reads, "STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS," and the shanks feature four more Maple Leaf designs, along with a prominent image of the Stanley Cup Trophy and additional raised lettering of "TORONTO / 64." The 10-karat-gold, size-11 1/2 ring is engraved "Birks 10K" inside the band. As a point of reference, back in June 2001, Maple Leaf trainer William Tramberg's 1964 championship ring sold at auction for nearly $7,500.
