Description:
1980 Art Ross Trophy Presented to Marcel Dionne. Among the most important individual awards in North American professional sports, the Art Ross Trophy is presented annually to the scoring points leader of the National Hockey League. Offered is the actual cup awarded to Hall of Fame center Marcel Dionne in 1980, the only season he claimed the fiercely contested top spot. It would prove to be the final year for over two decades to come that the prize did not go to one of three players: Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr.

Dionne had actually been tied with the young Gretzky at the close of the 1979-80 season at 137 points, but was awarded the tiebreaker by virtue of scoring two more goals than the Edmonton rookie. Though Dionne stands as one of the game's greatest all-time scorers, currently fourth on the career list at 731, the 1979-80 season is universally considered his finest, and this ultimate symbol of that season of brilliance rates among the most important NHL hardware ever made available for private sale.

The trophy stands 10.5" in height inclusive of its wooden stand, which bears an engraved plaque reading "Art Ross Cup, Presented To: Marcel Dionne, By: Alan Eagleson, 1980." The cup itself is further engraved "The Art Ross Trophy Presented to The National Hockey League by Arthur H. Ross, F/LT Arthur S. Ross, D.F.C., F/LT John K. Ross, To Be Awarded Each Year to the Leading Scorer." Gargoyles, leaves and grapes imagery adorn the surrounding area.

Condition is very strong, with light tarnishing of the silver cup and a few minor and inconsequential handling marks on the wooden base. A remarkable opportunity for the advanced hockey collector. Dionne's signed letter of provenance is included.
