Default Legends of the Game in Toronto, Canada

Is this place reputable for autographs?

I was just told EVERYTHING in the store was real. I question some things I just purchased in a lot of index cards.

Just looking for replys.

I was told the tooth fairy hated men.

Not sure. Been there a few times they seem reputable...

LOTG use to be the mecca of collectibles in the Toronto for years (pre-2001). With the rise of online merchants, this store went downhill. They downsized about 1/3 of the store. I am suprised they haven't sold/leased that space as it is prime space in a prime location (entertainment district). Kudos to them for still sticking around though, this use to be a great store.

As for the memo, I'd say the older stuff is legit. They had very good ties and were very reputable pre-2000. The newer stuff might be more of a gamble. As a side note - Their sportscards are way over priced.

Legends of the Game is under new ownership. They are now "From Hockey To Hollywood" and are being run by people who actually understand the business. The old owners understood the business circa 1994. That's why they've been taking it in the shorts the last 16 years. If you go there now, it's night and day.
