The Hall of Fame NHL player signs his name in purple felt on this light blue card
Signature: "Rod/Gilbert" in purple felt. 3¾x6½. Rod Gilbert (1941-2021) was a consistent scorer during an excellent NHL career with the New York Rangers that lasted 18 seasons. He blossomed as the right winger on the famous G-A-G Line (Goal-A-Game) with Jean Ratelle and Vic Hadfield, and although he never played on a Cup champion, he was often at his best in the post-season. On December 12, 1976, he celebrated his 1,000th game by setting up three New York goals in a 5-2 home-ice win over the Stanley Cup champion Canadiens. Before the start of the 1977-1978 season, Gilbert was engaged in difficult contract negotiations with Rangers general manager John Ferguson. Following a 15-day holdout, Gilbert never really got going and only lasted 19 games before retiring. His output totaled 406 goals and 1,021 points along with a host of New York scoring records. The classy winger was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1982. Edges irregular. Corners rounded. 3½x4 photograph affixed. Pencil note (unknown hand) on verso. Lightly soiled on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
