I'm a big fan of what Craig Conroy has done for the Calgary Flames. Like Jarome Iginla, Craig has done so much for the city of Calgary by really being embedded into the community. He's gone from player to management (at both the AHL and NHL stages!). Craig started his career by being drafted by... Continue Reading →
Got this return from one of the best in the league, Johnnny "Hockey" Gaudreau. I love that Johnny is only a few years from his prime and that he still signs cards for his fans. He was drafted by the Calgary Flames in the 2011 Entry Draft, going 104th overall. I can't say that I... Continue Reading →
Continuing on with the theme of Calgary Flames, we have in today's post, Mikael Backlund. Mikael has been a Flame ever since he was drafted into the NHL in 2007. He originally started his junior career with VIK Västerås HK in Sweden. He never really put up a lot of points in either his time... Continue Reading →
For as long as I can remember, Michael Cammelleri has been in the NHL (ok, he wasn't in the NHL in the 90s - but for a long time he has been!). Mike was originally drafted in the 2001 draft by the LA Kings in the 2nd round, 49th overall. I'd say Mike was probably... Continue Reading →
Theoren Fleury, a long time Calgary Flame (and current Calgary native) signed a nice batch of cards for me that I sent him through the mail. He has continually been a gracious signer, signing and meeting (from what I've seen on the Internet) fan mail for a long time. I have to say, from a... Continue Reading →
A nice return from Al MacInnis, this one where he's donning the Red and White. Al MacInnis, definitely known for his powerful slapshot, regularly topping 100 miles/hr during the All Star games. I watched Mr.MacInnis back in the day, so I was ecstatic to receive a return from him. Thanks Al!
A quick return (and a tiny autograph) from one of Calgary's best blue liners. Jay Bouwmeester probably has one of the smallest autographs for someone with such a long last name. Nevertheless, I'm still happy to have received this autograph from him. Thanks for the autograph Jay!
I got another Iggy autograph IP! This time, it was in another city, but he was just as nice as he's always been to sign cards. He was talking with a bunch of folks, along side Mike Cammalleri, although I do not get why I didn't stop him to ask for an autograph. I've gotten... Continue Reading →
Sweet, another autograph from Calgary Flame Alex Tanguay. This is currently my fourth autograph from Alex and has always been an extremely reliable signer. Alex is currently helping the Flames try and make the playoffs, but him along side Jarome will need to step up their play if the Flames have any chance of making... Continue Reading →
Wow! I didn't expect this one to come back, but Jay Bouwmeester returned this one quickly, 314 days to be exact. One of the players that I sent out early in my TTM career and didn't expect to see this one come back. I guess good ol' Jay is spending his summer days returning mail... Continue Reading →
Tim Hunter was part of the Calgary Flames, Vancouver Canucks, Quebec Nordiques and San Jose Sharks. He won a Stanley Cup with Calgary Flames in the late 80's and came close again with the Canucks in '94. Tim was known for his physical toughness, earning 3,000+ PIMs. Tough guy, but sweet autograph!
Jarome Iginla, the captain of the Calgary Flames', is probably the nicest guy! He was willing to talk to all us fans, and signed everything that everyone had. I'm super happy with his autograph because he's a top notch player and was the player who assisted on Sidney Crosby's golden goal in the Olympics this... Continue Reading →
