    1930's and '40's Hap Emms Estate Original Signed and Unsigned Photographs Lot of 23. Whether it was good or bad, nobody can deny the fact that Hap Emms had a significant impact in professional hockey. With a career filled with accolades, successes, failures, innovations and suspensions, Emms achieved legendary status as a former player, coach, owner and general manager of the game. Originally obtained from the "Hap Emms Estate," here we present a superb collection of 23 original photographs. With the majority measuring at 8x10" and exhibiting moderate wear, the following three signed images are included: 1933-34 Hap Emms 8x10" photo, Roger Jenkins 8x10" photograph (personalized to Emms), 1941-42 Omaha Knights team-signed 8x10" photo. Signatures exhibit solid condition throughout. Also included are 20 unsigned original images from Emms' playing days, including team photos, action shots and an intriguing image of his New York Americans on the Boardwalk of Atlantic City. Extremely interesting and eye-appealing collection from one of hockey's most memorable stars. Note: Our authenticators did not have exemplars of the signatures in this lot, however, we are confident each is 100 percent authentic.
