Considered one of the “cathedrals” of ice hockey, it was home to the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League from 1931 to 1999. The Leafs won 11 Stanley Cups from 1932 to 1967 while playing at the Gardens. A Benefit All-Star Game was held at the Gardens in 1934 as a benefit for Leafs forward Ace Bailey, who had suffered a career-ending head injury. The first annual National Hockey League All-Star Game was also held at Maple Leaf Gardens in 1947.
It was designated by the Canadian government as a National Historic Site of Canada in 2007.
Set in sterling silver, these cufflinks are made with the wooden pieces from the old seats once held in Maple Leaf Gardens. Beautifully gift-boxed and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
