Harold Carmichael does not tolerate "legalized graffiti."

Monday 29th of April 2013

     I apologize for the delay on my Harold Carmichael blog post from our autograph signing. We all know about those times when there is just so much going on.
     It was fantastic having an Eagles legend in store with us at CCC. I love when the player shows up earlier and we have the opportunity to chat with them for a little bit. In this case, Harold, myself and Carl (my dad) stood by the front door and as Harold looked around, he started to comment on player’s autographs. It was hilarious and unfortunately true. He was taking a look at current Flyers player’s autographs and called it “legalized graffiti.”
     He said how important it is for fans to be able to read your signature. “Your name is your most important thing,” he said. He even told us that he’s talked to a few current Eagles about their autographs and how important it is. Some his speech has worked on, others well, not so much.
     The signing itself was fantastic. It’s great to hear about the stories of when he played and who were his teammates. I think that’s one of the main reasons people really enjoy coming to signings. Having a chance to chat with the player and hear those stories and learn about how much the game has evolved. Mail order and drop offs are great options for signings, but in person is by far the best.
