1978-79 OPC Bill Nyrop Montreal Canadiens Autographed Card – Deceased – GAI Certified
Lot #520

This Washington, DC native spent 4 years playing for Notre Dame’s Fighting Irish before joining the pro ranks. He would join the powerful Montreal franchise just as the team was about to embark on a historic dynasty. The Habs would win 4 straight Stanley Cup titles and Nyrop was with them for the first 3. Following the 3rd Stanley Cup, Nyrop took a page from teammate Ken Dryden’s book and left the NHL to study law in his new home of Minnesota.

A few seasons later Bill rejoined the NHL for a season as a member of the North Stars. About a decade later after guiding the West Palm Beach franchise of the Sunshine Hockey League to 3 straight titles, Nyrop learned that he had inoperable Cancer. He sadly passed away on New Year’s Eve 1995 at the age of 43.

The card and signature are in beautiful condition and GAI certified.
