Hockey is still king at a big Canadian show, but fans also got in line early to meet a certain Hall of Fame running back.
He was the NFL’s premier back during the early and mid-1960s. Jim Brown is still a hit with collectors, who lined up to meet him at the Toronto Sports Card and Memorabilia Expo over the weekend.
Brown was among the autograph guests, who are always popular with the throngs that turn out for one of the world’s top shows.
It’s hard to believe the guy who danced around NFL defenses is now 71 years old. He talked a local reporter about his approach to autographs.
