What does habs mean?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Habs is an abbreviation of "les habitants," the informal name given to the original settlers of New France, dating back to the 17th Century. So it's a natural fit for the The Montreal Canadiens, established in 1909 and marketed as a French-Canadian hockey team.

Having said that, the nickname might have been the result of an error. According to NHL.com, the first man to refer to the team as "the Habs" was Tex Rickard, owner of Madison Square Garden, in 1924. Rickard apparently told a reporter that the "H" on the Canadiens' sweaters was for "Habitants." Not true. The distinctive C-wrapped-around-H logo stands for "Club de Hockey Canadien."

Asked by Wiki User

A Alex Rodriguez Ken Griffey Jr Duel Signed Bat is worth between $700. - $900. The most preferred bat for a signature is a bat closest to the size, and model the player used. The better the quality of the bat the higher collectors value it will have. Value is based on average prices of recently closed auctions. Prices may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. Signatures that have not been properly authenticated could sell at half the market value or less. Add for inscriptions.

Asked by Wiki User

The price on a Cobb Baseball varies. it depends upon the condition of the baseball. Also whether the ball was game used, the era that the baseball was signed, was it signed while Ty Cobb was still an active player in the MLB or was it signed after he retired from the game. From my past experiences dealing with such items and dealing in them in my home of Cooperstown, NY. the price range I have sold and also seen Ty Cobb baseballs at were anywhere in the range of $2000 to $8000 == == A Ty Cobb Single Signed Baseball is worth about $5,000.-$8,000. Prices may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. A pristine example of Ty Cobb's signature and baseball could sell Higher than $10,000.

In a recent auction a Ty Cobb Single Signed OAL (Harridge) Baseball sold for $5,078.75 Inscription will sell at a higher price if not personalized. I have found a lot of baseballs dated by Ty Cobb, and one signed and Inscribed "July 16 1949" sold for $11,950.00.

What is the value of a baseball autographed by Paul O'Neill?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Most autographs of his on a baseball go upwards to 100-200 dollars. However it depends what kind of ball its on? A normal baseball? An official league ball? A game used ball? Does it have Authenticity? If not can you prove the signautre is real? Prices vary but look for around 100-200 for an authenticated Mauer signed ball.

The price of Joe Mauer's autographed items will significantly increase after winning the AL MVP award, but as of right now, the price range listed is approximately right.

Joe Mauer is currently exclusively signed by Ironclad Authentics. If the Certificate of Authenticity is not from Ironclad Authentics, then the item will not be authentic.

While being authenticated by Ironclad is very good, if someone were to get joe mauer to sign a ball in person, they could then have it authenticated by any number of third party authenticators such as JSA, PSA DNA, or ACES etc

What are the latest trade rumors regarding players in the NHL?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Most NHL trade rumors seem to be pretty inaccurate, particularly ones flying around on internet message boards and fly-by-night sports blogs. With the beginning of the season still a little while off you should probably take all trade rumors with a grain of salt.

What does the 'H' in the 'Montreal Canadiens Hockey Team' Logo stand for?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Sometimes people refer to the canadians as the "Habs." According to stories, this nickman dates back to 1924. Tex Rickards, who owend Madison Square Gardens in New York, was told that the "H" on the Canadiens sweater stood for habitant, a French word that was once used to describe the farmers of Quebec. Really, though, the "H" stands for "hockey." the Montreal Canadiens official name is "le Club de Hockey Canadien."

Who are the local television announcers for the Montreal Canadiens?

User Avatar

Asked by Herb123

TSN and CBC don't use local commentators.

They assign a pair to each game. On CBC for example, if Toronto and Calgary are both playing then Jim Houston will be assigned to the Toronto game and Bob Cole will be given the Calgary game. This is due to Jim Hughson being their primary commentator, which was Bob Cole for many years.
