Vintage deceased Hall of Fame signatures abound in this autograph volume, a treasure trove of historic importance. We have 203 total signatures, with 100 HOFers signers present (with some minor duplication for a few extra examples), including 59 deceased. This total accounts for 46 deceased players along with 13 deceased builders/referees. At roughly 7” x 8 ½”, the vintage booklet features lined pages, with each HOF signature administered in ink and annotated with their year of induction added in pleasing block-letter script. Each page also features signatures on one side only, so cuts could easily be removed without damage to additional examples. Highlights include Aurele Joliat, King Clancy, Bill Cook, Babe Pratt, Frank Fredrickson, Harry Oliver, Cyclone Taylor, Tiny Thompson, Hap Day, Foster Hewitt, Ace Bailey, Black Jack Stewart, Elmer Lach, Jacques Plante, Jean Beliveau and Maurice Richard.
Other important signatures present include Frank Boucher, Dit Clapper, Ebbie Goodfellow, Dickie Moore, Ken Reardon, Clarence Campbell, Tom Johnson, Bobby Hull, Neil Colville, Max Bentley, Ted Lindsay, Jimmy Dunn, Bill Mosienko, Bryan Hextall, Charlie Rayner, Sweeney Schriner, George Armstrong, Tom Johnson, Sid Abel, Red Storey, Andy Bathgate, Allan Stanley, Emile Francis, Pierre Pilote, Harry Sinden, Marcel Pronovost, Howie Meeker, Stan Mikita, Billy Smith, Rod Gilbert, Guy Lapointe, Bert Olmstead, Norm Ullman, Guy Lafleur, Harry Watson, Wayne Gretzky and others. The majority of the signatures are large and flawless, while the book itself survives in beautiful condition.
