Description
Roy Edwards Buffalo Bisons 8x10 B&W Autographed Photo Deceased
Lot #526

This 8x10 B&W photo was personally autographed by Roy Edwards. Edwards began his professional career during the late 1950’s. He would remain a fixture in the minors including the IHL, AHL, WHL, EPHL, CHL and CPHL before getting his break during the Original 6 expansion in 1967 with Detroit.

In 1960, he became property of the Chicago Black Hawks. His name was engraved on the Stanley Cup in 1961, despite never having played a single game for Chicago. He would go on to play 6 NHL seasons with the Red Wings and another, sandwiched in-between, with the Pittsburgh Penguins before hanging up his skates. Edwards immediately became the man the Wings turned to playing in 40+ games in most every season with the club. His highest total of games played was in 1972-73 as Roy played in 52 contests that season. Roy died on August 16, 1999 at the age of 62

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