One of the enduring images of the Blackhawks’ Stanley Cup-­clinching victory is agitator Andrew Shaw celebrating with a bloody cheek.

Shaw kept playing even though stitches weren’t able to stop the bleeding after he was struck below the eye in the first period.

Now those stitches could be yours.

Starting Aug. 15, Shaw will auction off his stitches on eBay. You can place your bids for 10 days. Proceeds will go to the Jimmy V Foundation for breast cancer research.

The stitches will come framed with a photo of Shaw, according to the auction’s Facebook page.
