Lot 1259: 1947 Toronto Maple Leafs Team Signed Program with Bill Barilko
The keys on this vintage Maple Leaf Gardens publication are Turk Broda and the ill-fated Bill Barilko. Barilko disappeared on a fishing trip soon after scoring the series winner in the 1951 Stanley Cup Finals and more than ten years passed before his body was discovered in the wreckage of an airplane. Other significant signers include Day, Apps, Kennedy, Smythe, Meeker, Poile and Watson for twenty-one in total. Signatures are bold and legible on a program in very good condition.
