Signatures as Memorials

Recommended Posts

https://uni-watch.com/2018/04/02/signature-style-a-close-look-at-the-rusty-staub-memorial-patch/ - Hi, all. I don't know why, but when it comes to memorializing a sports figure, whether it be for a single team or league-wide, my favorite approach is using that person's signature as the memorial.

 

To me, it's a heartwarming reminder of that person who is being remembered. It's quite a nice touch, IMO. I wish more teams took this approach.

Another would be the Celtics putting the signature of Red Aeurbach after his death.

Only on the court. They used a shamrock with RED on it on the jerseys.

The Brewers did something like this with Davey Nelson.

The figures come from a charity he worked with.

Roger Neilson Memorial Patch worn by Ottawa during the 2003-04 Season. Black on both home and away, white on the alternate. It features not only his signature but his signature ties.
