The bidding war is finally over for a framed piece of merchandise, which included Chicago Blackhawks forward, Andrew Shaw's stitches. If you recall, Shaw got hit in the face with a puck during game six of the Stanley Cup Final. He left the ice to get stitched up and then returned to action. Shaw's face started to heal up and the stitches came out. He then framed the stitches and put them up for auction, with all the proceeds going to the Jimmy V Foundation For Cancer Research. 

Grant DePorter, the CEO of Harry Caray's, placed the highest bid on eBay before the auction closed. DePorter is a fan of collecting Chicago sports memorabilia and will put this item on display at one of the restaurant locations.

    I think I may change my answer from a few Friday face offs ago to the stitches as they were worth this much.
