Do I know anything about Nicolas Kerdiles? Nope! Do I plan at least educating myself a little bit about Nic while writing this blog post? Yup! Nic is an Anaheim draft pick, gone in the 2nd round in the 2012 entry draft. I assume that Nic was highly touted as most 2nd rounders have some level of hype, especially the ones in the 30 – 45 range. A year later, he was selected as part of the WJC for Team […]
A nice autograph from Hampus Lindholm of the Anaheim Ducks. Drafted in the first round, 6th overall, Hampus has no doubt lived up to expectations as he has been advertised as “a potential top end two-way defenseman” by utilizing his top skills “elite level passing, his skating, and his intelligent reads of the game” as per Hockey’s Future. He also has noted that his role model is Nicklas Lidstrom, a great role model if you ask me! I’ve met Hampus […]
Date received: July 4, 2012 Total players responses: 516 Total 2012 responses: 119 A nice autograph from Ryan Getzlaf. I picked up in a box that I picked up at a hockey card event. This was from an Upper Deck Ultimates collection. I find that the box itself was alright, nothing spectacular, perhaps also since I’ve gotten Ryan Getlaf’s autograph previously. Thanks Ryan!

I had actually sent a nice jersey card, superlative of all cards, to be signed by Scott. Unfortunately, he either kept or switched the cards and sent me this one. I can’t really complain since I know never to send […]

He was an undrafted prospect when he first hit the NHL scene in 2007 by then GM Brian Burke. Since then, he’s been a pretty solid goaltender, having gone to the Stanley Cup Finals and participating in the NHL All-Star game, among other NHL accolades.
Received IP: February 26th, 2012 Total players responses: 426 Total 2012 responses: 29 A nice auto, but slightly smudged, autograph from Lubomir Visnovsky. Lubomir is one of the top D men for the Anaheim Ducks, and remains one amidst the trade rumors this past year. Although lubo is now on the tail end of his career, he still can be an effective player and continues to put up decent numbers. This year, on a non-playoff team Anaheim, he was a […]
Received IP: February 26th, 2012 Total players responses: 425 Total 2012 responses: 28 My first autograph from George Parros. He’s the resident tough guy and all around nice guy from Anaheim. With his trade mark mustache and massive size, he’s one guy you don’t want to mess with. He was a giant when I got his autograph! Thanks very much George!

I’ve managed to snag Bobby’s autograph while I was in other cities, so its no surprise that he would sign. I’m actually grateful that someone, of his talent is still willing to sign so much stuff. Thanks a bunch Bobby! You can see my other returns here and here!
Received IP: February 26th, 2012 Total players responses: 418 Total 2012 responses: 21 Autograph by Ryan Getzlaf! Ryan, like many of the Ducks, were nice enough to sign for me. He signed this 11/12 Artifacts card. I’ve gotten Ryan’s autograph before, but I find that it looks really sharp on this card. Thanks a bunch Ryan!
Received IP: February 26th, 2012 Total players responses: 417 Total 2012 responses: 20 Auto by Matt Beleskey. He’s a 23 year old winger who was drafted 112th overall in 2006. I acquired this autograph in person while on my hounding trip. Last year, he split playing duties between Syracuse and Anaheim, notching up 34 points. I’ve gotten Matt’s autograph before, but I can’t seem to find his blog post anywhere!
Received IP: February 26th, 2012 Total players responses: 416 Total 2012 responses: 19 Another sweet autograph, this time from Corey Perry. This is my first autograph from Corey as I’ve tried my best to try and get him through other cities. He’s a tough one, but I managed to get him! I’m not sure, but I was able to get 2 cards signed, and each looked different. Nonetheless, still a good one!

He’s becoming better and better each year, and will eventually be a high scoring star in the league (as if he already isn’t now). This past year, he signed a 5 year deal with the Ducks, which will see him in an Anaheim uniform until the […]
