NFL: Green Bay Packers

  • 9 NFL titles [before the Super Bowl Era]: 1929, 1930, 1931, 1936, 1939, 1944, 1961, 1962, 1965
  • 4 Super Bowl titles: 1966, 1967, 1996, 2010

NBA: Boston Celtics

  • 17 NBA titles: 1957, 1959, 1960, 1961, 1962, 1963, 1964, 1965, 1966, 1968, 1969, 1974, 1976, 1981, 1984, 1986, 2008

NHL: Montreal Canadiens

  • 3 NHL titles: 1919, 1924, 1925
  • 24 Stanley Cup titles: 1916†, 1924†, 1930, 1931, 1944, 1946, 1953, 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1965, 1966, 1968, 1969, 1971, 1973, 1976, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1986, 1993

MLB: New York Yankees

  • 27 World Series titles: 1923, 1927, 1928, 1932, 1936, 1937, 1938, 1939, 1941, 1943, 1947, 1949, 1950, 1951, 1952, 1953, 1956, 1958, 1961, 1962, 1977, 1978, 1996, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2009

*As of 2013

These Stanley Cup titles were won during an interleague tournament including league champions from the National Hockey Association (NHA) (dissolved in 1917 and replaced by the NHL), the Pacific Coast Hockey Association (PCHA), and the Western Canada Hockey League (WCHL). The PCHA and WCHL merged to form the Western Hockey League (WHL) in 1925 only to dissolve a season later. Thus, the NHL became the only league to compete for the Stanley Cup in 1926 and has been the championship trophy for the NHL since.

Should it be pointed out that the first 2 Stanley Cup championships for the Canadiens were not as NHL champions (indeed, the NHL didn't even exist when they won the first...)? This is sort of the opposite of the Packers :) The Canadiens were also the NHL champions in 1919, 1924 (won the Cup separately) and 1925. –  Wooble May 10 '13 at 17:02
