The Origin and Anatomy of the Stanley Cup Infographic

The good lord decided to take matters into his own hands when there was no clear championship back in 1892. Now, after 122 years, it is one of the most coveted trophies to win in professional sports. The original cup was decommissioned in 1963 after it was starting to wear thin and deemed too fragile to put in the hands of rough hockey players. There are now 3 Stanley cups; the retired original, the modern version and an official replica.
