Autograph purchased at a card show in June 2012.
At first glance, you might think these were two different guys. What a difference facial hair makes.
The card on the right is from 1985-86, and was probably signed that year since the autograph is in black ballpoint pen. I don't think anyone used markers back then.
The card on the left is from the previous season--1984-85--but autographed in blue Sharpie marker. So it was probably signed a few years later, as blue Sharpies did not come into vogue until the 1990s. In fact, I'm thinking that this might have been signed at some sort of alumni game, since it is an old card but signed in marker. Also, the 1984-85 card of Rich Sutter I posted yesterday is also 'graphed in blue Sharpie, so maybe the autograph seeker got them both signed at the same event?
OK, tomorrow no more Flyers--I promise :)
