I would like to express my deepest sympathies to the Pontbriant family at this time. Armand was a great man whom I had the please of spending some quality time with at my sports collectible store in Cumberland for many years. After the store closed, my son and i would visit Armand at his home where he and his loving wife lived. We would spend hours talking about sports cards and sharing our love for the hobby.

May he rest in eternal peace with the love of his life! Thank you Armand for your friendship.

  • Those with accusations or allegations that can’t be proven, or that try to build a negative narrative about one person or entity over time through a clearly coordinated campaign. If you believe the backstory really needs to be shared, send us a letter to the editor or a story pitch with your name and contact information.
  • Those with outright lies or falsehoods.
