Continued: Bonds with athletes become gold for memorabilia dealer

“I thought Percy Harvin was a done deal, and that fell through,” he said.

Hagglund said his own memorabilia collection is relatively small.

“I work around it all day, and I don’t need to see it back at home,” he said. But he said he does collect “baseballs signed by rock stars” and someday hopes to get a picture of him with rocker Jack White of the White Stripes.

When Harding had another signing at Hagglund’s Fan HQ store on Super Bowl Sunday — it was billed as “Super Goal Sunday” — an estimated 250 fans waited inside Ridgedale at 10:30 in the morning while most of the mall’s stores were still closed. With assembly-line precision, Hagglund took photos of those who paid to have a posed photo with Harding.

“Here we go guys — one, two, three,” he said as he took a picture.

Bruce Moberg, a retired fourth-grade teacher from Blaine, had Harding autograph his own goalie pads, which Moberg had earlier purchased. Harding, somewhat startled, recognized the pads before signing them.

“Now I got to find somehow to get [Harding’s] mask,” Moberg said.
