Late in the second period of Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final, Chicago Blackhawks center Andrew Shaw took a puck to the face. The blow sent Shaw to the ice, where he laid in a small pool of his own blood: Eventually, Shaw would leave the ice under his own power, and during the second intermission, the 22-year-old received six stitches to his face to help contain the wound. Early in the third period, Shaw was back on the ice, and the sight of him raising the Cup above his head after Chicago's decisive win, blood still dripping from his fresh cut, was one of the iconic images from the Blackhawks' playoff run. Dream come true! pic.twitter.com/TwetzPhfJ3 -- Andrew Shaw (@shawz15er) June 25, 2013 For most, the memory of that moment would be enough, but somewhere out there, one fan will be able to own a tangible piece of Blackhawks history -- by buying the stitches that later came out of Shaw's face, with the money going to charity. Here are the details, courtesy of the Andrew Shaw's Stitches Auction to Benefit The V Foundation Facebook page: Starting Thursday August 15th, 2013 we will be auctioning off the actual stitches that Andrew Shaw received from a puck he took to the face in Game Six of the Stanley Cup Finals. This auction will be run for ten days ending on August 25th, 2013 on eBay.com. We will post links to the auction on this page. The stitches are being professionally framed with an autographed photograph of Andrew Shaw plus there will be other items included in this auction lot. The best part? The 100% of the final bidding price will be donated to The V Foundation for Cancer Research. The V Foundation has promised us that the entire donation will be allocated to breast cancer research. Here are the stitches, in all their glory -- the perfect addition to any collection. Happy bidding, I guess:
