Description
Barclay Plager Buffalo Bisons Autographed 8x10 B&W Photo - Deceased
Lot #500
Barclay was the most gifted of the 3 Plager brothers who all played defense for the expansion era St. Louis Blues. He was also one of the most popular players in St. Louis Blues history. Following his unexpected death in February of 1988, the Blues wore a memorial “8” on their game jerseys to pay tribute to the loss of this local hero. His player number 8 has also been retired by the Blues. Barclay was a 4-time NHL All Star between the years 1970-74. In 614 career games, all in a St. Louis uniform, Barclay amassed 1115 PIMS, providing both leadership and muscle for his teammates.

Barclay died on 2/6/1988 from a brain tumor and brain hemorraging at not quite 47 years of age. The rare photo is beautiful and the signature is a 10.
