    Can anyone tell me what the heck this COA is trying to say? I know it is a forum seat.... but ™™™ LEAF!

    Better than a manufactured patch in my opinion...
    I collect Beliveau and Lafleur autos. Can consider other nice Habs cards too.

    It's a forum seat. Not sure what you mean by double speak.

    Possibly that they put French on the top on the back and then put English for the " We Hope you enjoy your piece of hockey history as you get in the game" not 100% but I'll roll the Dice.

    I think what's being referred to here is the "On the front of this card is a piece of event used seat of Bill Durnan". Like, that sentence doesn't make any sense.

    That's the downside of using "arena relics" and stuff like that on a card, and linking it to a specific player.

    UD has used bricks from the Forum in 2018-19 Artifacts for their Arena Artifacts subset. They look cool, and they are of course paired with a player on the front (Roy, Lafleur, Beliveau, and more are in the set) but the wording on the back of the card is a much easier to read "You have received a trading card with a stadium relic certified to us as having come from the Montreal Forum." No player reference on it, which is eminently appropriate.

    Speaking of the Forum bricks, they were a super cool item that fans could purchase as well as part of the Habs Centennial celebrations.

    Yeah, now I follow. I'm guessing Leaf just uses a template to fill in the backs of the cards.......

    "event-used", "seat", and "Bill Durnan" are three separate values. Probably all of their game used cards say "of <<PLAYER NAME>>".

    I was a little confused because what the COA is saying it is.... a piece of a Forum Seat, on a card of Bill Durnan is pretty clear, even if wording isn't spectacular.
