    Late 1970's Valeri Kharlamov Signed Photograph. Arguably, the greatest Russian hockey player ever to take the ice, Valeri Kharlamov's life came to a tragic end when he died in a car accident in 1981 at the age of 33. The star left winger was part of the famed Russian team who lost to the U.S. in the "Miracle on Ice" game, but was also part of two gold medal Winter Olympic teams in the two Olympics prior to the historic 1980 Lake Placid games. Kharlamov never lived in North America, which is a big reason that signed action photos of the Hall of Famer almost never appear. Offered here is an exceedingly rare 4x5.5" newspaper image featuring a 7/10 blue ball-point Valeri Kharlamov signature. Originally purchased from a Russian autograph dealer five years ago, this piece can be compared to the pictured color photo displaying a facsimile autograph of Kharlamov. An extraordinary exemplar, from one of hockey's best. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. LOA from Russian Autograph Dealer.
