Help with getting soccer Star Hugo Sanchez auto on my San Diego Sockers picture


I have had this San Diego Sockers photo since I was a kid. I got all the signatures on it before one game in 1980. Hugo Sanchez was on the team that year, but he was not at that game. I would like to add his signature to this photo. Does anyone have any info on where he is doing a public signing? I am willing to pay to have this signed. Thank you in advance for any help.

    It looks like he died last November?

    I am still looking to get this photo signed by Hugo Sanchez. If anyone has a lead on where he is signing or will be appearing, I would appreciate any assistance.

    I will pay a Finder's Fee once it is signed.

    Thank you!

    Might consider picking up an auto of his that you could cut and put with it as a place holder until you're able to get the poster in his hands?

    Thank you for the suggestion. I have waited this long to have it signed...I will leave the way it is until then.

    I looked him up on SportsCollector.net and he's not listed.

    I know there's facebook groups for signings/requested signings for other sports. Maybe there's one for soccer too?

  • CMKLCMKL Posts: 64 ✭✭✭

    Thank you. I’m not on Facebook. But I’ll have my son check that route.

    There is a very active Instagram account (search #hugosanchez) which could provide some leads. Lots of recent postings.

    Might be helpful to speak/write in Spanish.

    Thank you for the lead

    I wish I could help you. I grew up in San Diego and watched these Sockers teams as a kid. The games at the sports arena were a ton of fun. Many years later I met Juli Veee through work and had occasion to hang out with him on a handful of occasions. Such a fun, great guy! And an incredible soccer player.

    Thanks Todd. It’s been tough to find a lead that has panned out. I have had this photo since 1980. Those NASL games at Jack Murphy Stadium were the best.

    I’ll bump this again incase someone out there can help.

    I know it's not the same as hard signed on the photo, but have you acquired a Sanchez auto that you'd be able to cut and add onto the photo, at least to store separately in your collection as a potential addition down the road? Yes, it would be a bit of a shame to alter the project, but, at some point it might come down to weighing the balance of complete incl. one cut'n'paste vs. all hard-signed except missing one key star.

  • CMKLCMKL Posts: 64 ✭✭✭

    Thank you for the suggestion. I’m confident I’ll eventually find the lead that will get this photo signed.

    Are you familiar with a guy named Greg Suttie? He’s sort of Mr.San Diego Socker. (Look up Suttie on Soccer.) He might be able to help.

  • CMKLCMKL Posts: 64 ✭✭✭

    I will reach out to him. Thank you

    Interesting, I had no idea he played for the Soccers. I remember seeing him a Real Madrid in the late 80s. Within the last ten years I heard he was living in Coronado, CA. The only thing I can find more recent an article from earlier this year which stated. Sanchez is a studio analyst for ESPN Deportes, which telecast Sunday's Clasico, won by Barcelona, 2-1.

    If he is still in Coronado and you can locate him I could help you as it is pretty close to me and I would love to meet him.
