Bill Speer Baltimore Clippers 8x10 B&W Autographed Photo Deceased
Lot #682
This 8x10 B&W photo was personally autographed by Bill Speer. Speer began his professional career in the early 1960’s and became an AHL regular, representing the Springfield Indians, Cleveland Barons, Buffalo Bisons and Baltimore Clippers before making his NHL debut with the expansion Pittsburgh Penguins in 1967-68. Following two seasons with Pittsburgh, Speer spent parts of two years on the Bobby Orr led Boston Bruins blueline. Speer’s first season with the Bruins saw them capture the 1970 Stanley Cup, the only Stanley Cup Championship of Speer’s career.

In 1972, the WHA came calling and Bill spent the last 2 seasons of his career playing for the New York Raiders, New York Golden Blades and Jersey Knights before retiring. Speer died on February 12, 1989 while riding his snowmobile in Fenelon Fall, Ontario. The snowmobile plunged through the ice and Speer drowned at the age of 46.

Our consignor went to a hockey game every night and had all autographs signed personally.
