Three of the most beloved heroes of the Montreal Canadiens have all applied black marker autographs to the back rest of this number “9” white Montreal Forum seat, creating a tempting piece that will make you the envy of many. The names of Maurice Richard, Jean Beliveau and Guy Lafleur are stenciled in blue, along with “Club select 500 buts - 16/25” (with the “u” damaged). Each has signed beneath the mentioned particulars, with the Richard signature especially dark. A Canadiens decal has been affixed to the seat back, with the padded leather seat hole free. Habs logos with “1924-1996”, the years the Forum housed the Canadiens, are on the steel base that supports the seat. A framed display made to house and display the accompanying LOA is included, with photos inserted of the trio all signing Forum seat backs. A second LOA will also be included.
The seat back exhibits chipping along the top left section, with some additional wear to the finish along edges and where the seat is affixed to the base. The seat covering shows some white spotting from the original paint job on the seat back, with a few additional marks present. The accompanying frame is roughly 21 ½” x 23”, with pictures of all three signers along with a few inserted Habs jersey images. A spot is reserved for the accompanying LOA, with the glass cracked along the top left portion.
