FARGO, N.D. (AP) – The most popular trophy in sports won’t be the only historical artifact on display next week when Pittsburgh Penguins center Matt Cullen shows it off in the Fargo-Moorhead area.
The Stanley Cup will be next to a Stanley car.
A West Fargo antique car museum is tuning up a 1936 Rolls-Royce that belonged to Edward Stanley, son of the man who founded the cup that goes to the NHL champion. The car has been at the Bonanzaville museum since the early 1970s.
Cullen grew up in Moorhead and lives in the area with his family. He’ll pose for pictures with the cup and the car on July 30.
All players on the cup-winning team get the trophy for 24 hours. It’s the oldest professional team sports trophy in North America.
