The waiting is the hardest part. The celebration is worth it. For the first time ever, fans can now hunt for St. Louis Blues Stanley Cup champions memorabilia. It took 52 years and a half-season comeback for the ages, but the 2018-19 Blues are now the kings of the National Hockey League.
The Blues’ 4-1 win over the Boston Bruins in Game 7 came on the road and over six months after the team sat at the bottom of the standings.

Fans and collectors will have no trouble finding Blues Stanley Cup merchandise and collectibles to remember the season. Here’s a look at some of the items that are available:
2019 Official Stanley Cup Final Program
Stanley Cup Final programs are readily available on eBay and among the less expensive items you can own.
Stanley Cup pucks come in a lot of different forms. You can buy unsigned pucks, identical to those used in each game of the series. You can buy dueling logo pucks, too, featuring both the Blues and vanquished Boston Bruins. The biggest selling item through Fanatics.com so far is this simple $9.99 “Stanley Cup Champs” puck.
You can buy autographed Stanley Cup Finals and Champions pucks from some of the players who have deals with Fanatics/SportsMemorabilia.com. Signed Blues pucks from Jordan Binnington, Vladimir Tarasenko and other players are online now and not that expensive. Binnington items have been the biggest sellers so far, by the way.
Photos are also among the more inexpensive items from the 2019 Stanley Cup but you can also buy autographed versions and some of them are phenomenal. In addition to great sots of team members hoisting the Stanley Cup, there are signed photos featuring big moments from Blues players during the series as well. Carl Gunnersson’s Game 2 goal; Ryan O’Reilly’s Game 4 goal and David Perron’s Game 5 heroics are captured in both signed and unsigned versions.
There are plenty of photos of Blues players hoisting the Stanley Cup (bet you never thought you’d read that phrase) that cost far less.
If you’re not into spending a bunch on autographs, there are some nice unsigned collages available, like this one you can own for under $50 or this one that includes a piece of game-used net and a piece of a game-used puck that’s a little more expensive (save 10% if you type in the code SCDAILY at checkout).
Fanatics’ deal with several Blues players will put multi-signed Blues jerseys on the market at a cost of around $2,200.
You can own Blues team sets from various sets issued by Upper Deck, the NHL’s trading card partner, some of which are under $10.
Stanley Cup Ice
Yup, you can own melted ice from the 2019 Stanley Cup Finals. It’s melted, of course, but inside special crystal pucks that are pretty neat and relatively inexpensive. There’s also a mini Stanley Cup version with ice inside. Both have been among the top sellers in the hours after the Blues claimed the championship.
Minutes after the third period of the final game ended, there were Stanley Cup championship bobbleheads on the market. The eight-inch tall bobbles will be arriving later this summer but you can reserve now via Fanatics for $39.99 each with several players available, all holding Lord Stanley’s trophy.
It won’t be ready to ship for another 5-6 weeks but you can relive the run to the Cup through the official Blues championship DVD, available through Fanatics for $25.
