The popular Hanson brothers from the movie Slapshot will sign autographs at the Spring 2014 Sportcard & Memorabilia Expo in Toronto. The trio will be part of the Sunday afternoon Stars of the Game autograph lineup on May 4.
In real life, the Hanson “brothers” are Dave Hanson and real-life brothers Jeff and Steve Carlson. All three were professional hockey players in the 1970s and 1980s.
The Hansons join a star-studded autograph lineup that also includes alumni of the Philadelphia Flyers (Saturday May 3) and Calgary Flames (Sunday May 4). The Saturday lineup pays tribute to the 1974 Philadelphia Flyers while the Sunday lineup pays tribute to the 1989 Calgary Flames.
There are also four goalies appearing at the show, with three of them on the Friday night and one on Saturday.
A full preview of the Spring 2014 Sportcard & Memorabilia Expo will be published on Thursday, May 1.
