Robert Lang

I remember watching Robert Lang as he was part of the Washington Capitals during a portion of his career.  While he never hoisted the Cup, he had a successful career as an NHL forward, posting 700 points and ranks in the top 10 among Czech born players. He participated in the NHL All Star game... Continue Reading →

Trevor Van Riemsdyk

I've met Trevor Van Riemsdyk, in the past, when I used to go get autographs in person. Luckily for me, the experience was good and he signed! Trevor, as you may have already guessed, is the younger brother of James Van Riemsdyk.  Trevor went undrafted in the NHL Entry Draft but like most undrafted players,... Continue Reading →

Ben Smith

Ben Smith will always go down as one of my most memorable Blackhawks to have played against the Canucks. The reason being that when the announcer had called out Ben's name, he was so new to the team and NHL, we had no idea who he was! For some reason, his name stuck around and... Continue Reading →

Corey Crawford

Today's blog post brings us to Chicago, where we have goaltender Corey Crawford returning some mail to me. Likely by the time this post is published, the trade deadline will be over and we'll know if Corey has been traded to another team. There currently are trade rumors being circulated, with the thought that Corey... Continue Reading →

Al Secord

I'm actually really liking Al Secord's autograph.  His printing as well as his signature is probably one of the best I've seen as long as I've been getting TTMs.  I do think that players now a days get so many requests that they're almost forced to limit the amount of characters in their autograph for...

Dirk Graham

A one year response from old timer Dirk Graham.  Dirk only played for two teams during his 16 year career in the pros.  He was initially drafted by Vancouver in the 1979 entry draft, going 89th overall, but was picked up by Minnesota as a free agent.  Dirk gracefully signed 4 cards for me, all...

Bobby Hull

  Really? Nothing needs to be said about one of the greats of the game, Bobby Hull.  Wicked shot, super quick and was able to produce a pretty good son!  Super stoked to have received this return from Bobby Hull!

Patrick Sharp

Another good return from Chicago Blackhawker Patrick Sharp.  Playing on the second line with Kane, he's been a very productive scorer.  Slowly increasing his point production every year he's been in Chicago, he'll have another good year as long as he isn't injured.  He recently signed a long term deal with the Hawks, although I...

Brent Seabrook

ZOMG! I didn't think I was getting a return from Brent Seabrook, as I've seen returns on message boards/forums with shorter returns.  Regardless, I was happy to get a return from him as he's an all-star defenseman, born in BC!  Although super slim, I'd love to see him a Canucks uniform, as I like it... Continue Reading →

Jeremy Roenick

Good Ol' JR is my 300th autograph!  Jeremy Roenick was a very colorful, outspoken type of player and was always willing to speak his mind.  My favorite moments were a) when he got hit in the face, and he threw water bottles out on the ice and berated the officials after the game to the... Continue Reading →

Bill Gadsby

On the same day as one of my longest returns ever, Bill Gadsby ranks among the top of the list in terms of quickest returns.  Fourteen days after I had sent this out, Bill returns this card with a fantastic autograph.  These old timers really know how to please their fans after so many years. ... Continue Reading →

Chris Chelios

A nice return from Chris Chelios.  I've seen a few returns recently from him, so I was planning on writing to him again c/o Detroit Red Wings, but I guess the postage strike Canada Post just had probably delayed my return.  Regardless, I'm definitely happy I got his auto!  Chris Chelios is a premier defenceman...
