Welcome to my obsession, this is my blog to showcase my sports memorabilia collection. All the autographs are 'in-person' which makes it more interesting! Some great NHL'ers are from our area and come 'home' in the spring. Feel free to use this site for reference for your autographs. I am not an expert but all my stuff is "in-person" so it can be a great reference point. And please drop me a comment!

Johnny Bower and George Armstrong Part 1

Johnny told this one and we all had a good laugh. He said he and George Armstrong attended a junior game to do some scouting for Leafs. Bower said Armstrong did not like signing autographs but would if asked. They were watching the game one night and a small boy approached both and asked Armstrong for an autograph on a piece of paper. Armstrong did so and the boy asked for his jacket to be signed. He did so again but was a little upset. The boy came back again and asked Armstrong to sign his butt, yes his butt. He pulled down his pants and Armstrong autographed the boy's butt. Armstrong told Bower it was time to leave now and as the were heading out, Bower noticed the autograph, Armstrong signed it, 'Johnny Bower'.
