Leafs memorabilia, including '67 Stanley Cup banner, toilet, up for auction

It’s been a while since the Leafs have been considered hockey royalty but fans can get their hands on a throne from the team’s former shrine.

More than 100 pieces of Toronto Maple Leafs memorabilia are on display Thursday at Maple Leaf Gardens, including the last Stanley Cup banner from 1967, penalty boxes and an old toilet from the Buds’ dressing room.

“The 1967 Leafs Stanley Cup banner will probably be the most valuable item sold. It originally sold for $66,000. We’re hoping to hit six digits with it this time,” Frozen Pond auction house president Hersh Borenstein said.

“Imagine the Louvre selling off the Mona Lisa. That’s what it’s like.”

The relics of the Leafs’ heyday are being auctioned off online until Nov. 14. The Frozen Pond auction items come from a private collector who snapped up $500,000 worth of keepsakes during the original Maple Leaf Gardens auction in 2000.
