Allen Stanley Signing My Leafs Jersey

Allen Stanley played for many NHL teams including the Toronto Maple Leafs (1958-1968). Four time Stanley Cup winner, including the last cup The Leafs won. After retirement from hockey, Allan and his wife Barbara owned the Bee Hive Hockey School Complex near Bobcaygeon.

I had also brought a metal Shirriff coin with his picture on it. In the 1950s, Shirriff Salada gave away coins with of NHL players on them in their food packages. He was shocked to see it and wondered where I had got it. I told him I bought it in an antique store. He just burst out laughing and said something along the lines of how that dated him. We got a good laugh out of that. Maybe I shouldn’t have said “antique store”
