Sale Price $81.00
The NHL player signs his name in blue ink on this magazine photograph, shown holding a Winnipeg Jets uniform alongside past Winnipeg Jets general manager John Ferguson.
Magazine photograph signed: "Best wishes/David/Babych", in purple ink, B/w 7½x10 affixed to a 8x10½ card (2 surfaces). David Babych (b. 1961) is a retired NHL player of Ukrainian descent, playing for 19 seasons with the Winnipeg Jets (1981-1986), Hartford Whalers (1985-1991), Vancouver Canucks (1991-1998), Philadelphia Flyers (1997-1999), and the Los Angeles Kings (1998-1999). Babych was drafted in 1980 by the Winnipeg Jets, with his brother Wayne also being drafted around the same time. Babych had a successful rookie career, and was voted to play for an All-Star game as early as 1983. He continued through his career at a rather steady pace, but suffered from various injuries along the way that impeded both the amount of games played and the performance in the games. One such injury would cause him to sue the Philadelphia Flyers after retiring, saying the team's orthopedic surgeon misdiagnosed a foot injury as something less severe, and that the injury caused him to end his career prematurely. While the jury found no evidence of fraud for the surgeon or the Flyers, Babych was awarded $1.02 million in lost wages and $350,000 for pain and suffering. Ink note (unknown hand) on verso. Left edge has multiple creases. Soiled on corners and edges. Lightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
