Charlie Conacher Autographed 1st Year Maple Leaf Gardens Hockey Program . Very Rare Single Signed program cover. N-Mint . Complete with Game Insert.
To find a program in Near Mint condition from the first year of Maple Leaf Gardens is very difficult in itself. Then to have the signature of Charlie Conacher, the NHL leading scorer from that year, on the cover is a sight to behold. This would also be the only season Conacher would hoist the Stanley Cup. It was the greatest season of his Hall of Fame career.
The program itself is in beautiful condition. The Maple Leafs hosted the Montreal Canadiens for this game on March 5, 1932. The final score was 1-1 with Charlie Conacher the goal scorer for the Leafs and Howie Morenz the goal scorer for Montreal. The original lineup sheet remains with scoring notations in fountain pen from the game. The program itself has several fabulous articles on Howie Morenz, Charlie Conacher and Canadiens Goalie, George Hainsworth. Very rare to find articles and images of Hainsworth with the Canadiens.
