How did signing of casts start?

Asked by Trance24 (3299 points ) January 18th, 2008

Where did this originate from? I never really knew why everyone signed someones cast after they broke a bone. Anybody know?

in high school in the sixties, we signed casts. I don’t recall signing cast in grammar school

Makes the person with the cast feel “special”—that and you have this fairly permanent thing (well, I kept my casts for a while) to remember all the folks who were around you then =)

Had a physics teacher sign casts in a big red marking pen,

Didn’t really answer the question, jogged the old memory bank though…
