The Stanley Cup, oldest trophy  competed for by professional athletes in North America, was donated in 1892 by Sir Frederick Arthur, Lord Stanley of Preston and son of the Earl of Derby, in  1893. He purchased the trophy for 10 Guineas ($50.00 at that time) to be  presented to "the championship hockey club of the Dominion of Canada." 


There were no professional hockey leagues in that era, and the Stanley Cup was reserved for the winners of Canada's amateur championship. The first  winner was the Montreal AAA team in 1893. For the next 17 years, amateur teams were entitled to "challenge" the reigning champions for possession of the  Stanley Cup. A single victory would force the Cup to change hands and many teams took possession it in those early years.


By 1910 a  professional hockey league known as the National Hockey Association began  managing the annual Stanley Cup competition. The trophy was now awarded to the  top professional team in Canada -- which might emerge from any number of smaller  leagues. Since  1910, when the National Hockey Association took possession of the Stanley Cup, the trophy has been symbolic of professional hockey supremacy and has been competed for only by NHL teams since 1926. By 1946, the  NHL owned all rights to the trophy that had once been reserved for amateurs . There have been numerous alterations to the Cup structure. Because the Cup is the only professional sports trophy where the name of every member of the winning team is  inscribed, bands are often retired to make room for new champions.
