Description:
1929 Howie Morenz Signed NHL Document. Often called "The Babe Ruth of Hockey" for his status as the sport's greatest talent and drawing card during the Roaring Twenties, Morenz also might bring to mind the Babe's sidekick Lou Gehrig for his tragic, early passing. Signed eight years before a bone-shattering encounter with Chicago Blackhawks legend Earl Seibert first ended his career, and soon afterwards his life, this simple document establishes Morenz' acceptance of an invitation to attend "the National Hockey League Golf Tournament" in his Montreal hometown. He signs a bold pencil "H. Morenz" and notes his handicap as a none too Bobby Jones-like "24." The 8.5x11" page bears a few stray markings from NHL headquarters and neatly torn punch holes at left, none of which diminish the visual appeal or desirability of this scarce document. A fitting cornerstone to any fine collection of hockey autographs. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
