In this offering is a SGC authenticated autograph of BILL MASTERTON and signed in black ink pen (please see images) on a 3x5 index card. The clear SGC holder measures 4" x 7 1/4" and is in near mint condition. Of note - you will notice SGC Authentication mistyped his name on the header label.
This is something that I've encountered with them on autograph pieces submitted once before and several times with PSA/DNA. Bill played for the expansion Minnesota North Stars and would tragically passed away in 1968 a couple of days from a head injury sustained on the ice during a game.In his memory, the NHL created the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy that is awarded to a player who demonstrates perseverance and dedication to hockey. It has been awarded annually since 1968. Additionally, the North Stars retired his jersey number 19. This was the most difficult hockey expansion autograph for me to locate and is an excellent exemplar - nicely signed on an index card. In fact, it's the best display of Bill's that I've seen.
It is for the advanced hockey autograph collector or a North Stars collection. Feel free to contact me with any other questions regarding this listing. Please wait for my invoice before paying. Hope you enjoy and have success to add some pieces to your collections!
