Autograph Archives: Greats of the Game

The end of another semester and a rather small mail haul these last couple weeks gave me some free time to scan for another Autograph Archives post.
Since most of these players are already very well known I will let the pictures do the talking for this post.  I am going to try and eventually get my entire collection scanned to the blog.  None of these cards have previously appeared on this site as they were acquired before I started the blog.  As per my collection rules all of the following players have played at least 1 game in the NHL.  All are certified autographs.  The old Ultimate autographs all have an authenticity stamp but hard to see in the scans.
Here's to the time when players signed legible autographs.

  1. I am really jealous of you and mad at myself for not picking up that Bernie Geoffrion since it is a part of MY Fleer Greats of the game set. But I do have another Bernie Geoffrion autographed card in my collection that I am willing to trade to help your project since you just need his auto and not that specific card.

    Email me at

    There are Bernie Geoffrion autograph cards on the market but a specific card like the Fleer one is hard to come by and I can never be able to complete my set without it. BTW. I have every other card signed with Gump Worsley and Rick Martin. Just missing Sawchuk and Horton who died before the set was made.
