1968-69 Topps Terry Sawchuk Autographed Card - JSA Authenticated
Lot #294

This 1968-69 Topps hockey card is signed by Hall of Fame goaltender Terry Sawchuk. Sawchuk won 501 games, 447 regular season and 54 playoff games, while recording 115 shutouts, 103 in the regular season and 12 in the playoffs. His 103 regular season shutouts is still a record to this day. He won the Calder Trophy as the league's top rookie in 1950-51 while also being voted on the first All-Star team.

In 1952, Terry Sawchuk led the Detroit Red Wings to the Stanley Cup in the minimum eight games of two best-of-seven series, during which he recorded four shutouts and allowed only five goals.

In all Terry was a first or second team All Star 7 times, won 4 Vezina trophies, a Lester Patrick trophy and 4 Stanley Cup championships. There is no discussion of the greatest goaltender ever without Terry's name being mentioned.

Terry died on May 31, 1970 at only 40 years of age after a shoving match with his teammate Ron Stewart.

This beautiful example of Terry's 1968-69 Topps hockey card is signed by Terry in black marker. That signature has also been authenticated by JSA Authentics through Beckett grading.
