July 16, 2013 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- A piece of the Blackhawks Stanley Cup history went on the auction block Tuesday night during an online bid.
Gus Pappas bought the 1961 Stanley Cup banner back in 1994, and it was featured on the ABC7 Morning show last Thursday.
He shelled out $15,000 for it during an everything-must-go auction at the old Chicago Stadium. But on Tuesday night he put the 8x12 foot banner up for sale.
An anonymous bidder paid $37,500 dollars for the banner.
