Hockey Hall of Fame Autographs – The Roger Harris NHL Collection
#canada #nhl #hof #montreal #toronto
Up for sale, over the next few months, will be pieces of NHL memorabilia from a collection never seen before. Contacted by a colleague who knew the owner Roger Harris, I was asked to have the honor of spreading the joys of this collection into the hockey fan world. Over 700 pieces were compiled by Mr. Harris, a Rutland, VT native, who had written and mailed several thousand letters during the 1950s, 60s and 70s to the greatest hockey players of the past. Mr. Harris requested three things: an autograph, a photo and to share a greatest thrill. (Search using the term “Harris” in my eBay store: Roger Harris Collection)
Many HOF’s are included: Chuck rayner, Eddie Giacomin, William Jennings, Bob Clarke, Marcel Dionne, Ted Kennedy, Guy LaPointe, Emile Butch Bouchard, Brad Park, Bob Clarke, Jean Ratelle, Rod Gilbert, Jean Beliveau, Bill Gadsby, Norm Ullman, Red Kelly, Alex Delvecchio, Glenn Anderson, Johnny Bucyk, Bernie Geoffrion (Boom Boom), Lanny McDonald, Adam Oates, Henri Richard, Denis Savard, Serge Savard, Steve Shutt, Guy LaFleur, Stan Mikita, Bryan Trottier, Pierre Pilote, Frank Mahovlich, Allan Stanley, Ted Lindsay, Andy Barthgate, Sid Abel, Harry Howell, Eddie Giacomin, Tony Esposito, Gerry Cheevers, Tiny Thompson, Jean Ratelle, Stan Mikita, Emile Butch Bouchard, Milt Schmidt, Syl Apps and Marcel Dionne – to name only a few.
Some of the greater items, including handwritten letters, rare photos and part of over 200 mint notecard signatures will be authenticated, including a letter written by Ken Dryden himself as he talks about his greatest thrill: playing in a certain Stanley Cup. This will extend, along with my guarantee of the authenticity of these items, additional evidence of the collection compiled by a man nostalgic for hockey greats.
Some items will be sold as a package, for instance, with Syl Apps, who wrote a letter, autographed a card and sent a photo. As more items are authenticated by a reputable third party, after being examined, sorted and preserved by me, you will see more listings. Starting first will be listed a collection of 1974 NHL Hockey Linnett Prints.
