Bill White 2012 Canada’s Walk of Fame Crystal Trophy – The Bill White Collection – Bill White Letter
Lot #534

GAMEWORNAUCTIONS.NET is pleased to present The Bill White Collection. This exciting collection of memorabilia comes directly from the personal collection of 6-time NHL All Star and 1972 Team Canada member Bill White. These items were obtained directly from Bill White in the spring of 2017, just prior to his untimely passing. A signed letter from Bill White will accompany your purchase.

This beautiful crystal trophy was presented to Bill White, along with the other 1972 Team Canada members, when the team was inducted into Canada’s Walk of Fame in 1972. White’s NHL career began as a member of the expansion Los Angeles Kings in 1967-68. White spent the first two and a half years of his NHL career with LA before a deal sent him to the Chicago Blackhawks in February 1970. He would spend the next 7 seasons with the Hawks, playing his last game in 1976. Bill’s arrival in Chicago helped bolster the Hawks blueline and led them to Stanley Cup Finals appearances in 1971 and 1973. Widely considered among the best in his own zone during his era, White played in 6 consecutive NHL All Star games spanning 1969 thru 1974 and was named 2nd Team NHL All Star three consecutive years spanning 1972-74. On the international stage, this rearguard was a member of Team Canada in 1972 and played in all 8 games in that historic Summit Series.

The 1972 Team Canada squad was inducted into Canada’s Walk of Fame in 2012 along with Randy Bachman, Phil Hartman, Russ Jackson, Sarah McLachlan and Sonia Rodriguez. Presented to each member of the team was this beautiful 15” high crystal trophy. The trophy reads “Team Canada 72, Bill White, 17”. Other famous Walk of Fame inductees include Dan Aykroyd, Jean Beliveau, Alexader Graham Bell, James Cameron, John Candy, Jim Carrey, Michael J. Fox, Wayne Gretzky, Monty Hall, Gordie Howe, Mario Lemieux, Eugene Levy, Rachel McAdams, Steve Nash, Bobby Orr, Ryan Reynolds, Maurice Richard, William Shatner, Martin Short, Darryl Sittler, Donald and Kiefer Sutherland, Alex Trebek and Neil Young amoung others.
