Do You Buy In-Person Autographs?
Plus Upper Deck Singles Day!

In this episode of the Puck Junk Hockey Podcast, Sal Barry and Tim Parish talk about buying in-person autographs  on the secondary market. Not a certified autograph that you’d find in a pack of cards, but an item that a dealer claims that he (or someone else) got signed and is now selling. They also discuss the 2020 Winter Classic jerseys for the Nashville Predators and Dallas Stars. Plus, Chris Carlin from Upper Deck tells us about the upcoming Upper Deck Singles Day trading card promotion. It’s 80 minutes of hockey goodness!
