THOMAS SCALLEN
Handwritten sentiment on a sheet containing his card as President of Medicorp, the investment company through which he purchased the Vancouver Canucks. The transaction got him jailed and then deported.
Autograph Sentiment signed: "May 1st 1968/Best regards -/Tom Scallen -/Ice Follies", 7x9¼. Affixed below his signature is his printed business card as President of Medical Investment Corporation, Minneapolis, Minnesota. Thomas Scallen, a Minneapolis based lawyer and businessman, owned the Ice Follies, and was President of Medicorp, a company investing in the health care industry. In 1969, however, Scallen used Medicorp to purchase an expansion franchise in the National Hockey League, locating it in Vancouver as the Canucks. Scallen's ownership was short-lived. He was convicted of securities fraud, spent 9 months in a Canadian prison, and was then deported, divested from the Canucks. Though bitter about his treatment in Canada, Scallen's interest in sports investment remained. He became President of the International Broadcasting Corporation, owner of Ice Capades and the Harlem Globetrotters. In 1990, he was executive prodder of a TV special celebrating fifty years of the Ice Capades. IBC filed for bankruptcy in 1991, however. Scallen now practices law in Minneapolis, and has invested in an arena football team there. Lightly toned around edges. Lightly creased. Fine condition.
