An Ontario collector who says he’s spent five years traveling across North America gathering autographs from the members of Canada’s 1972 Summit Series team that beat the Soviet Union says he was stiffed by the one man whose signature is among the keys.
Dubs says he’s had few problems going to autograph sessions at card shows and other events, adding the autographs of the ’72 team members to the point where Dryden was the only one he needed.
At the banquet, however, Dubs says the 65-year-old Dryden told him he wouldn’t add his autograph to the jersey because he was sure he’d see it for sale on eBay.
The retired GM sheet metal worker caught him by surprise.
“I wouldn’t spend five years trying to track everybody down and then sell it,” Dubs said according to a story in the Windsor Star.
