  1. Andy,

    This is a great site. I especially enjoyed your latest article on the WPS. It’s great to note your memories are more about the people than how the team did on the field.
    I am in the process of starting a sports league myself and would like to pick your brain and get your thoughts on an endeavour like this. I’m not sure if this email is private, so I won’t divulge the sport or where it will be based, but will once we can communicate privately.
    I look forward to your response.

    Cheers,

    Dwayne Stern

  6. Hi Faith

    That stick would seem to be from the 1941-42 Springfield (MA) Indians of the American Hockey League, which was a minor league hockey team.

    The biggest name on the team would be the Indians player/coach Eddie Shore, who is a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame. If his signature is clear and legible and the stick is in good condition, then it will have more value than it otherwise would.

    As with all but the most pristine and sought-after pieces of sports memorabilia, the main marketplace for selling something like this would be e-Bay.

    I can’t give you an approximate value. It’s really whatever the market will bear. If the stick is in great condition and the signatures are legible and not faded from decades of age that will help. If you are thinking of selling on e-Bay, make sure to take great pictures – well lit, in-focus. If there is an Eddie Shore signature, make sure to post an second photo showing it in close-up.

    Hope that helps

  7. I recently read about the history of the Detroit Express. I know in October 1982 Sonny Van Arnum wanted to buy Jacksonville Tea Men and operate a NASL franchise and transfer the Detroit Express to Jacksonville as ASL franchise. I was at the press conference when they gave Sonny a Tea Men warmup suit after he committed to buying the Tea Men from Lipton. I worked for the Tea Men from Jan 1981-December 1982 and I was offered a position in Detroit once the sale went through. A few weeks went by when the business manager for Lipton who handled the Tea Men finances called to tell us that Sonny Van Arnum was not going to go through with the purchase of the team and can we get that Tea Men warmup suit back.
