I have been given permission to ask any of you to help me in identifying hockey signatures that I have on a goalie hockey stick.There are thirteen signatures in all
but I can't make out at least four of them. Pictures have been taken which I will attach to see if any of you can help me on this.
The signatures I have made out so far are:
1. EDDIE SHACK
2. WILF PAIEMONT
3. MAURICE RICHARD
4. JEAN GUY TALBOT
5. YVONE LAMBERT
6. GILLES GILBERT
7. JIM NEILSON
9. AND ONE THAT LOOKS LIKE RED ARMSTRONG.
PERHAPS THESE NAMES WILL GIVE YOU A CLUE OF THE YEAR THESE PLAYERS PLAYED. (I'M GUESSING IN THE SIXTIES) AND THEIR TEAMMATES IF SOME OF THEM PLAYED TOGETHER ON THE SAME TEAM.
THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HELP AND PLEASE BE ADVISED THE GOALIE STICK IS NOT FOR SALE. I LOOK FORWARD TO ANY REPLIES
PS ONCE I KNOW ALL THE NAMES WOULD ANY OF YOU SUGGEST HOW I COULD VERIFY THOSE SIGNATURES?
Well, you appear to have a stick signed by players spanning several decades including ex-NHL Referee Red Storey (1950-1959). I'd imagine the things either from a Cards & Collectibles Show or possibly an Oldtimers Charity Game held sometime in the 90's. Wilf Paiment retired in 1988, so likely mid to late 90's.
Note; That middle signature could be Christian "Chris" Bourdeleau who played for the Montreal Jr. Canadiens & then the Habs for a couple of seasons in the late 60's, then with Chicago, into the WHA, retiring around 79... the 3rd signature, sorry, no idea. Cant make it out.
It's a series of programs from oldtimers games, and the first one from Feb/93 has most of the players listed in this thread. So I'm assuming the stick came from one of those games that year, but not necessarily all the same players as the lineups would change a bit from city to city.
Its either Jimmy Jones or Jimmy Mann. Jones name doesn't show on the player listings for the old timers games but Mann does.So for now I will go with Mann.
When I get to verification of the signatures I will give them both names.
Right now I have two I can't make out although one looks like it starts with an F-
see fourth picture above. The only name beginning with an F on the roster is Frank Mahovlich.
The other -see third picture on right above could be Dave Tiger Willaims signature as it looks like an W for the start of the last name. He is on the roster list.
