1997 All-Star Game Autographed Helmet - Need Some Help Identifying a Few
Some of you have seen this before as it was owned by another member (Trevor - wingnut888) but this is a very cool item for my Patrick Roy collection and really just awesome for any collector.

There are 25 autos on the mini helmet and I have been able to identify 18 of them so far.

Here are the other 7 that I need some help with:

I think this one might me Mark Messier but I can't tell for sure:

No idea who this could be or if I have the auto the right side up:

I think this is Adam Oates but not 100%:

I think it is either Brett Hull or Brendan Shanahan but hard to tell:
[Image: IMG_00000268_zpsc60df8d0.jpg]

Pretty sure this is John LeClair but again not 100%:
[Image: IMG_00000266_zps7be7ac4b.jpg]

This one should be Mark Recchi but again not for sure:

So thanks to Trevor for the easy deal and a reasonable price for this item. If anyone can help sure up those last 7 autos I would appreciate the help.

Thanks for any help and comments.

wow nice piece. lets see a full shot of the helmet.

Im going to agree with Messier, LeClair, and say Shanahan but let the Hull collector answer that.

I think you're right on the Messier, usually he would sign first/last name together, but it looks like his - just hurried.
The Adam Oates, I don't think so. I have one of his and the A is pointed, and his last name is fully legible.
The next one is Shanahan. Brett Hull is quite different.
And the Mark Recchi I think you're right as well, I checked against one I have and it looks close.
The next one is John LeClair, shows his #10.
The 2 unidentified, and the Oates, I have no idea who they are. I checked all my autos against the All-Star roster and can't come up with anything.
I am thinking though, that's a lot of signatures to put on a small helmet, and just imagine trying to sign such a small rounded item.
Your helmet is very cool, nice pickup.

The one everyone seems to think is Mark Messier is in fact Marc Crawford.

Sweet, just had a look on eBay and you are correct. Was he an assistant coach on one of the teams?

My guess is that, as the winning head coach in the previous Stanley Cup Finals, Crawford automatically earned Western Conference bench boss duties for the 1997 All-Star Game. I believe that Doug MacLean is another signature found on your helmet. He was the head coach when Florida faced Colorado in the finals that previous spring, so I think he would've garnered head coaching duties on the Eastern side.

-Joe

P.S. The signature you thought was John LeClair is correct.
