Description
Oakland Seals Full Program - November 10, 1968 - Signed by Tim Horton - Deceased
Lot #330
Beautifully preserved full program from the Oakland Seals 2nd NHL season. Our consignor went to every game and had his programs signed personally. The program is scored inside. Our consignor would cut news articles and photos about the game from the newspaper the next day and tape them inside the magazine on pages that were used for advertising around the scorecard. The ticket stub from the game is also taped inside. None of the important parts of the book were covered.

On the night of this game the Maple Leafs beat the Seals 3-1. The front cover is signed by Tim Horton who is also pictured. Our consignor attempted to get his programs signed by the cover and players who scored goals in the game.

Tim died on February 21, 1974 late in the morning after he played in a Sabres game that evening.  The sports car he was driving (a gift from Sabres GM Punch Imlach) hit a concrete culvert and Tim was ejected from the vehicle.  It was estimated that he was traveling at over 100 MPH without a seatbelt.  Tim was only 44 years old at the time of his death.
