As a kid, did you ever have a dream make it to the NHL? Maybe become a great scorer, a Bobby Orr-type defenceman or a Hall of Fame goalie?

Maybe, as a goalie, you dreamed of lifting the Stanley Cup over your head, and then being honoured by winning a Vezina trophy as the best goalie in the league.

Well, that last bit of your dreams is now a reality.

The Vezina trophy Montreal Canadiens goalie Jacques Plante won in 1959-1960 season is now up for sale. That was the first year the Montreal Canadiens hall of famer wore his goalie mask, paving the way for the safety of goalies every where.

It was also the year the Habs won their fifth Stanley Cup in a row, an NHL record that still stands to this day.

The auction is on eBay and the trophy can be bought for $6,900.

A great buy for any Habs fan. And a way to live out one of your dreams.
