Autographs IP--Brantford

The details are kind of hazy. There was a slo-pitch game involving NHL players in Brantford during the 80's. There was a reception after that I couldn't attend but a friend did. Knowing that I collected autographs, I received this afterwards.

An 8x10 b/w photo from Wayne Gretzky Night when he was named Sportsman of the Year. Presented to him by Brantford boxer Gary Summerhays. Signed in blue ball-point pen by both men.

Back signed by other celebrities in attendance. NHLer's Doug Jarvis, Pat Hickey, Derek Smith, minor leaguer Brian Cross and two autographs I can't make out. Think I am going to have to check this out some more to find out more information. But there you have it. From my personal archival collection, an early Wayne Gretzky IP autograph.(with no number 99).
