On March 12, 1966, Bobby Hull became the first NHL player to score over 50 goals in one season when he scored his 51st goal of the 1965-66 campaign.
That historic puck is now available for bid at Classic Auctions. The puck is from Bobby Hull’s personal collection and is covered in gold. Hull did this with all of the pucks that he kept from his career. The puck is mounted to a marble base and has two engraved plates detailing his accomplishment.
The puck also comes with a certificate of authenticity, on vintage Chicago Blackhawks letterhead, signed by Hull.
Also included is a signed 11″ x 14″ photo of Hull celebrating his accomplishment after the game.
Hull’s 51st goal puck is currently at $2,469.00. The auction ends March 1, 2023. It should be interesting to see how much this puck sells for, considering its significance in hockey history.
Other Blackhawks items currently open for bid at Classic Auctions include:
A mini hockey stick signed by 17 members of the 1938 Black Hawks – that year, the team won its second Stanley Cup championship.
A lot of 55 Black Hawks team photos ranging from 1933 to 2003.
