This is pretty cool. My brother lives in LA (Glendale actually) and he has a small prop production shop that he runs. He makes all kinds of props for videos, commercials, movies, etc. A couple weeks ago he got a call from EA Sports and they wanted a replica Stanley Cup for some commercials that they are doing. They told him that they had quotes of as high as $18K! He assured them that he could be that price. I don't know what he charged them but he just sent me some pictures of the project in work and completed. Here are some pics...
I don't know about you but I think he did one heck of a job! So if you see any ads from EA Sports with a Stanley cup in them, my brother made it. I just thought I'd share.
