Hey guys, my brother-in-law gave me this puck today and he said it was autographed by 2 different Red Wings. I'm assuming from the early 90s. He has no idea who signed it so I was seeing if you guys had any idea. Thanks

I agree the first looks like Carson. The second is too short for Chiasson. Here is an example of his http://cgi.ebay.com/...em=310287704577

I've looked through all the players who played for us during Carson's tenure (1989-90 to 1992-93) and I really can't seem to match any names.

I was looking at hockeydb doing that just now. I wonder if it was at an autograph signing with someone who wasn't on the Wings.

Not really.


My vote goes for Al Sobotka. :thumbup:

I can ask him if both guys were from the Wings, but I believe that they were.

It's former Red Wing Shawn Burr #11!
The top one is indeed Jimmy Carson, enjoy your autographed puck!

Ya I have the same autograph when I found a piece of paper with a few Wings player signatures. Just that the #11 is very clear on mine.

Also on the same piece of paper is Osgood, Vladdy (it's 16, so ya...don't think it'd be anyone else), and I believe Primeau (The Keith part is legible, can't make out the rest though).

Got FSD setup with all it's glory.  Plan to have pre and post game coverage along with Wingspan and 24/7.  Youtube page: RedWingsLive1
