Harry Caray’s Buys Andrew Shaw’s Stitches

Andrew Shaw's famous stitches have found a home.

Harry Caray's restaurant, known for buying memorabilia that have found a way into Chicago sporting lore, purchased the stitches for $6,500.

The stitches were used to patch up the gritty Blackhawks forward after he took a puck to the face in the first period of Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

Shaw put the stitches on the auction block to raise money for the Jimmy V Foundation for Cancer Research, which will specifically allocate the funds toward breast cancer research.

The stitches, along with a autographed photograph of Shaw, will be displayed at Harry Caray's Navy Pier location.

In past years, the restaurant has bought the infamous "Bartman Ball," held a ceremony to blow it up and served the remnants in spaghetti sauce.
