This is a really neat card to get signed by Andy Moog, three time NHL Stanley Cup champion. Although the backup position is an important position when the starting goalie gets injured, Moog disagrees. He won those three cups with Grant Fuhr leading the way. While I never had a great chance to take in his goaltending abilities, it appears as if he wasn’t able to crack Bleacher Reports’ goaltender list from 2011. I’m a little surprised at he wasn’t in the top 50 on this list.
Andy never reached the type of respect he was looking for with the Oilers causing him to demand a trade. The Boston Bruins obliged, sending Bill Ranford to the Oilers in 1998. Here, Andy got to share starting goaltending duties with Reggie Lemelin. Unfortunately for the Buins, they never achieved a Stanley Cup during Andy’s tenure with the team.
Moog went on to play for Dallas, Montreal and was even offered a contract by the Vancouver Canucks (which he declined), before retiring in 1998. He ended up taking a goaltending consulting position with the Canucks instead.
Gettin’ the auto
I got this autograph from Andy Moog in 68 days through a private address. Andy has signed for me in the past, dating back to 2011 when I first started out in this hobby. Coincidentally, it was on the EXACT SAME CARD. It kind of shows how many Andy Moog cards were produced from Score in the 90s. He signed this one and the one seven years ago, in a blue sharpie. I wonder how many of these cards Andy has ever signed.
