I’m absolutely stunned at how this Dale Hawerchuk autographed card turned out. He chose a very nice, blue sharpie to sign this card and the fact it matches his jersey against the red background / patch makes it look really nice. I do have to say I’m thankful that Dale hasn’t reduced his signature, although I’m positive he continues to get many requests for autographs.
Dale, as a player, has achieved tons of success, personally and with a team. He was inducted into the HHOF in 2001 due to these successes.
At this time, Dale is the head coach of the Barrie Colts and has helped the club achieve the playoffs for many years and outstanding regular season success. This year, the Barrie Colts didn’t achieve what they likely intended to accomplish at the start of the season with a 2nd round exit at the hands of the Kingston Frontenacs.
