Welcome to the second installment of Collector’s Corner here at The Pink Puck. I hope you were able to meet some of the iconic Boston Bruins who were signing in the month of November. Christmas is a mere 24 days away and what better gift for the hockey fan on your list than a piece of autographed memorabilia.
Remember, when buying an autograph, especially one you didn’t see get signed in person; make sure the seller is including a certificate of authenticity (COA). If a COA is not included, I would be very wary when it comes to buying the item. Most dealers are reputable, but there’s always the chance of that bad apple who is just trying to make a quick buck with a forgery. Some venues allow you to take a picture with the athlete, so make sure you ask before trying to take one, and always remember to thank the player for signing your item.
Listed below are the Boston Bruins players that will be signing during the month of December. Have a great holiday season and as always, happy collecting…
December 6th from 7-9PM at The Lantana in Randolph, MA [43 Scanlon Dr. (781) 961-4660] Bruins’ offensive defenseman Torey Krug and forward Loui Eriksson will be signing. Prices range from $50-70 for one item signed by either Krug or Eriksson or $100-140 to get a signature from both. There is also a $20 inscription fee (3-4 words).
January 1st, for those of you who are not nursing a hangover and feel like venturing out on New Year’s Day, Boston Bruins legend and Hockey Hall of Famer, Johnny “The Chief” Bucyk will be signing from 10:30-1PM at The Big Sports Card and Memorabilia Show at the Holiday Inn in Mansfield, MA (31 Hampshire St). Prices are extremely reasonable at $14 for one autograph and then $10 for each additional signature and there is no fee for a HOF inscription.
