    1960-61 Montreal Canadiens Team Signed Display. A dream come true for a young Québécois hockey fan who created this display and then mailed it to the Canadiens' arena in the hope that it would be returned in autographed form. And sure enough, it was! The 22x28" poster board project bears the ballpoint ink signatures of twenty-one members of this dominating club, whose forty-one victories was best in the NHL that year. Geoffrion (3/10), Richard, Plante and coach Toe Blake quickly draw the eye to the lower left portion of the design, but we also find top point-scorers like Bonin, Hicke (3/10), Harvey and Backstrom among the cast of characters. All but four signatures rate 9/10 or better--the rest register at a strength of 2/10 or 3/10. One autograph (Talbot) is a cut signature affixed with glue, but the others are signed directly to the poster board. Some water staining and general wear remains mercifully clear of the autographs. Included is the letter received by the young boy from the publicity director of the Canadiens when the piece was returned to him in January 1961. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
