Additional Product Information

Boston Garden opened in 1928 and was originally named Boston Madison Square Garden as it was designed by Tex Rickard built the third Madison Square Garden. Rickard, who also promoted boxing, aimed to build an arena with this sport in mind. Thus fans were very close to the action and this, combined with the Celtics' supposed ability to know where a ball would bounce on the iconic parquet floor, was thought to have contributed to the team's hometown advantage. The parquet floor was originally built in the Boston Arena and moved to the Garden in 1952. When Boston Garden closed in 1999, Tokens & Icons was selected by the arena's management to celebrate the storied basketball floor. Eleven five-foot square pieces remained and Tokens was entrusted with nine of them. These parquet panels have been used to craft this item. Boston Garden hosted nineteen NBA Finals, four NBA All-Star games and was the first arena to host the NBA and Stanley Cup Finals in 1957.
