Original Stanley Cup

Original Stanley Cup (StreetView)
Officially known as the 1892 Dominion Hockey Challenge Cup, the original Stanley Cup is on display inside of a vault at the Hockey Hall of Fame. In 1892, Lord Stanley of Preston decided to create a trophy to award to the top amateur ice hockey team in Canada. This silver bowl was purchased in London, England by one of Stanley's aides.

Each year, the winning teams were allowed to engrave their players' names onto the Cup. It was eventually mounted on a small base, which grew in size over the years to make room for more engraved winners. As of 1910, the Cup has only been awarded to pro teams. In 1927, the NHL adopted the trophy as its own.

The original Cup was retired in 1970 and replaced with the Cup still used today.
