Description: Blackhawks 1961 Stanley Cup Championship Banner In 1961, Chicagoans witnessed their beloved Blackhawks, led by sports legends Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita, win the Stanley Cup for the first time in 29 years, beating the Detroit Red Wings 5-1. It was the first championship for the city since 1947, when the Chicago Cardinals won the National Football League title, and unfortunately the last Stanley Cup title the 'Hawks would win for another 49 years. The 1961 win was commemorated by a stunning championship banner that hung in the old Chicago Stadium until 1994, when the stadium was torn down to make way for the United Center. A highly publicized auction of the stadium's contents was held by Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, with the banner being among the highlights drawing significant attention and competitive bidding. The winning bid of $15,000 came from restaurant owner, Gus Cappas, who proudly hung the banner in his Glenview restaurant, McMahons Steakhouse, for the next 20 years. 144 x 94 inches
