269 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs. Inscribed on dark blue front free endpaper in silver ink: "To ____ / Happy Birthday! / All the Best / Bobby Baun / #21"."(It) was Baun's winning goal in overtime of game six of the 1964 Stanley Cup finals that made him a legend. Carried off the ice on a stretcher in the third period with what would later be determined to be a fractured leg, Baun insisted on returning to the game, giving new meaning to the words determination and courage. His rock-solid will helped send the Leafs on the road to their third consecutive Cup. How Baun broke his leg and the sequence of events leading up to his famous goal have been inaccureately reported for over thirty-five years. Now, for the first time in print, Baun tells us exactly how his leg was broken, and how he courageously came back onto the ice and launched himself into Stanley Cup history. (Baun) tells us what it was like to play on a team run by Punch Imlach, and how he played defence against such greats as Rocket Richard, Jean Beliveau, Gordie Howe, and Bobby Hull. And he shares his favourite memories from the dressing rooms and training camps, incuding Tim Horton's legendary antics and stories of fellow Leafs Eddie Shack and Billy Harris. (A) close, personal look at the game in the Original Six era and the men who played it." Tiny corner bump on front board, light wrinkling at top of spine, tiny tear at bottom of page 109 - archivally taped, light waviness to edges of text block. Dust jacket has very light edge wrinkling, minor rubbing.
