One of my latest pick-ups.

1958-12-06 East-West All Star Game at Hamilton.

I'm not much of a program collector (muchless "remnants" of a program) but this one seemed too cool to pass up.

What we have here is just the cover, signed by 46 legends and All-Stars of the era.
I hadn't realized it until it got here --- it worked out to 46 autographs for $46 Canadian dollars, free shipping. I'll take that all day.

I've identified 45 of the 46 signatures below. The unknown autograph is near the bottom, above the word "East"  and below Roger Nelson's signature. Looks like "Chuck...???".

Going from left to right, top to bottom....

….You need a handwriting analyst hoth...I'll hazard a guess on the first name of your missing guy....looks like Clive....the rest of the name is anyone's guess of the most integral parts overlooked in to hear what\'s NOT being said....Anonymous

I see "Chuck" but yeah....could be Clive.
Don't see either of those names on the rosters above, of course there's a number of sigs here from players who weren't on the official All-Star rosters and might've just been attending the game that day or were injury replacements.

The John Barrow was the other tough one....looks like John "Boiso" to me.


….Could be Chuck as well're right...the last letter of his first name running into the beginning and over the top of his last...The last name requires the Rosetta stone, to unearth that guy

….Now Jim Van Pelt...that guy can heckuva qb. whose career ended way too soon...Still think about him even after all these years
