Who is Charlie Coyle? Just a guy drafted 28th overall in the 2010 NHL Draft. A decent Center prospect who was traded to the Minnesota Wild and scored his first NHL goal last season. He isn’t one of the stars of the rookie class, but he is making a name for himself in other ways.
Sorry for the terrible grab there. But the scan sucked.
Well now I’m not sure who Charlie Coyle is even more. Do his teammates call him “Dick”? Is this an homage to recently deceased Richard McWilliam? That can’t be you real autograph, can it be Charlie?
Charlie is obviously a jokester or a collector himself knowing that this would go into collector’s hands and could be worth a bit more than his usual autographs.
How Upper Deck Quality Assurance missed this? We will never know.
Update: Upper Deck states that the autograph is fake after contacting the athlete in question. Should you believe them? If you were the athlete, would you confess to doing that? Another thing we will never know.
