A civil suit filed against one Ontario memorabilia dealer over the authenticity of some jerseys has gone away.
It’s a big money enterprise and sometimes dealing in the game-worn uniforms of star players can generate controversy.
For one Canadian sports memorabilia dealer, the sale of a pair of superstar hockey jerseys resulted in a civil lawsuit last summer when the Michigan-based buyer decided he didn’t think they were the real deal.
Now, that suit has been dropped and an apology written to Derrick Luck. But it didn’t come fast enough to prevent NHL.com from removing a valuable link from their website, likely costing him some business.
"This hurts the whole industry, not just me," the unlucky Luck told the Toronto Star, which spilled details of the new development.
