The Malik Report

I’m not a fan of the concepts of cutting up Original Six legends’ equipment and/or sweaters to place little swatches thereof on hockey cards, nor am I a big fan of the fact that so many of the NHL’s most important historic pieces of memorabilia tend to find their way into private collectors’ hands these days, and WWJ reports that a significant milestone puck from one Gordie Howe is on the auction block:
Hockey Nuts, here is your chance to own a piece of Detroit history! Actually, it’s your chance to own a piece of a legend. On Friday, March 11, the DuMouchelle Gallery in Detroit will auction off the Gordie Howe 300th Goal signed puck.
The puck has had the same owner for the last 50 years, Bill Whiting of Rochester Hills. His mom won the puck at a school auction in 1960 when Bill was 14. Gordie Howe, he says, was his hero. Now, he says it’s time for the puck to find a new loving home. DuMouchelles says the puck will likely see an auction price of $5,000 to $6,000.

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
