Solid Gold Champagne Bottle from Bruins' Celebration to Be Raffled

Solid Gold Champagne Bottle from Bruins’ Celebration to Be Raffled

 ImageSome collectors are content with traditional pieces of sports memorabilia. Signed pucks, jerseys or sticks are often the most common choices amongst hockey fans because they're directly related to the sport and are in steady supply. It takes a true hockey connoisseur to appreciate an item born out of a night celebrating the Bruins' 2011 Stanley Cup season.

Tim Thomas, Zdeno Chara, Patrice Bergeron, Milan Lucic, Brad Marchand and Shawn Thornton of the Boston Bruins were out celebrating their recent win at the Shrine Nightclub in the Foxwoods Casino. By the end of the night, they had accumulated an outrageous bar tab that totaled $156,679.74. The majority of the total was a $100,000 bottle of Ace of Spades “Midas" Champagne. The luxury Champagne is so expensive because the bottle is made of solid gold and weighs over 100 pounds. The 30-liter bottles are made entirely by hand and there are only six in existence.

After the celebrating had ended, the players signed the consumed bottle and it is now scheduled to be raffled off in the near future to benefit the Boston Bruins Foundation. For all those who are curious how six players ran up such an expensive tab, check out the graphic representation created by A scan of the receipt from the night can also be viewed.

Similarly, the Dallas Mavericks also celebrated their recent NBA World Championship with a bottle of the "Midas" Champagne but their bottle was the 15 liter version.

Once the raffle has been scheduled, more information will be available on the Boston Bruins Foundation website.
