The 16x20 fight photo autographed by both Lemieux and McCarty will be $60 prior to the signing and $65 the day of the signing. If you want your own stuff signed Lemieux will be $25 per autograph and McCarty will be $20 per autograph. Each inscription will be $5. Tickets are now on sale. Email me if you are interested in ordering tickets now. mcsg007@yahoo.com There is a price break on 10 or more dual signed 16x20 photos purchased.

2010 huh?

Absolutely speechless this is going to happen, it was only 15 years ago we all wanted Lemieux in a body bag. I'd bet 90% of Red Wings fans still hate Lemieux's guts! The 10% are probably to young to remember.

I'll be watching the news on April 2nd to see if there was an incident involving Lemieux and some Red Wings fans at Mt. Clemens Gibraltar Trade Center. Have extra security on hand.

No April fools joke. They both want to be there together. Also, there will be plenty of security there.

I find it really strange that Lemieux will be there, especially charging MORE than McCarty's?

McCarty usually charges around 20 bucks for in store signings, thats just his price. he'll sign for free at charity events or other events aswell, but with in store signings, its generally 20 bucks.

plus anyone who collects wings autographs probably has him on a few things.

If i went to this signing, which i plan on, i'd probably just get the 60 dollar ticket that includes both sigs and the 16x20, so a single signed lemieux item isnt going down on my end.

him charging 5 dollars more than McCarty isnt a big deal though. he's travelling here, and someone's likely gonna call him a **** at some point.

Yeah, I'm not saying it's an outrageous sum, just that it's funny he'd charge more than Detroit's hero and expect to get anyone wanting him to sign things. I'd dish out the cash for both of them, though, a cool piece of history even if he is scum.

Well, it kind of makes sense the Lemieux would charge more for his autograph. He is after all, more than likely a Hall of Famer. Plus the Detroit market isn't saturated with his autographs, as it is with McCarty's.

And, if people didnt know, Mac and Lemieux put their differences behind them a long time ago,

It would be rather juvenile of Red Wings fans cant get over something that happened 15 years ago.

I was thinking more along the lines of Claude planning for that expensive hospital visit..

What happens on the ice, stays on the ice. Most hockey fans would be wise to remember that. That it something that all hockey players are taught from drop in and rec leagues all the way up to the pros. Sure, I hated Colorado and Lemieux, but if I met Claude in public today I would shake his hand out of respect more than anything. Hockey players are warriors and deserve our respect, no matter if they were hated rivals.

Um... no. Hockey players are human too. And some of them are ******* pieces of s***. I'll respect Chelios before I respect Claude. Respect him all you want, but he doesn't respect you... he just wants your money.

Same could be said of any professional athlete. There are a rare few that play for the people. Many of them play for the money or for love of the game. To many, fans are just a means to get a paycheck.

I agree. All I'm saying is that Claude's conduct on and off the ice and his indifference towards Draper during that whole thing makes him pretty much impossible to respect. For me. He doesn't deserve any respect from a single person involved with the Wings, fan or otherwise, imo. I'll never give that clown a dime.

This is a strange one. The Wings fan in me hates Lemieux and cannot stand the thought of paying his autograph. Then again the sports memorabilia fan in me thinks that the fight involving these two was one of the defining sports fan moments I had while growing up and having a photo signed by the two involved would be amazing. I would probably attend this.

On another note is there any official announcement about this other than just a message board post? No offence to the original poster but it would be great to see an announcement on the place holding its website or something. Not trying to say hes making stuff up but you can only take a single post at face value.

That is hilarious. Have you forgotten that Chelios was one of the dirtiest of all time? His hit on Brian Propp in the 89 playoffs was every bit as dirty and careless as anything Lemieux did.
Chelios was also unapologetic after putting Propp out of the playoffs. Look up some of his quotes. Next thing you are going to say is that one of the most beloved Red Wings of all time, Dino Ciccarelli was a Saint, although he spent a night in jail for trying to break his stick across Luke Richardsons face.

You took that WAY out of context. I actually despise Chelios more than Claude overall. And I despised him more in the Winged Wheel. But I would be a lot quicker to give Chelios some respect. At least he gave back to the community and to the organization. Claude is just here to sponge twenties.
