Claude Lemieux

Claude Lemieux is one of the dirtiest players the NHL has seen and I actually say that in a good way.  Maybe I actually meant he played with an edge which at times, he crossed.  Needless to say, Claude was very good at what he did.  He won the Stanley Cup four times with three...

Tyson Barrie

Tyson began his, well junior, hockey career in Kelowna, the same province in which he grew up in.  Drafted in 2006 by the Rockets, Tyson was selected 18th overall.  The draft featured current NHL players like Evander Kane, Brayden Schenn and Cody Eakin.  Only 18 players within that draft ever went on to play at...

Matt Duchene

I got this card back from Matt Duchene, former Colorado Avalanche.  I love the fact this card has a mostly white background and if he signed in blue, it would have been a major upgrade in terms of “wow” factor. Matt was originally selected by the Colorado Avalanche in 2009, going 3rd overall right behind […]

Michael Sgarbossa

Decent return from Michael Sgarbossa of the Manitoba Moose and currently a Winnipeg Jet prospect. At the age of 25, Michael has showcased his talents in a total of 48 NHL games, with the majority of the being played for the Florida Panthers. Michael thrived in the junior leagues, racking up 102 points in his... Continue Reading →

Milan Hejduk

To coincide with the previous post regarding Joe Sakic, Milan Hejduk played a significant role in the success for Colorado winning a second cup, this time during the 2000/2001 NHL season.  He was originally drafted in the 1994 NHL entry draft and eventually played for Colorado five season later. Similarly to Joe, Milan played his... Continue Reading →

Joe Sakic

What an awesome return from HHOF player Joe Sakic in just under a month.  This card, without the signature is a black and white semi-glossy card and looks amazing but with the blue sharpie absolutely makes the autograph standout. "Burnaby Joe" Sakic is a legend and had played his full 21 year career with the... Continue Reading →

Craig Anderson

A nice autograph on this Masked Men III card by Craig Anderson of the Colorado Avalanche.  The Senators are currently making a late season push to stay in the standings and have been doing so with the goaltending of Craig Anderson.  Let's see how well the Sens do, and how Craig responds with the signing...

Joe Sakic

A nice auto by Burnaby Joe himself!  It's my first return of the SP Authentics cards, which I'm really happy about.  It has turned out really nice and I'm glad he signed it in a sweet blue sharpie.  Joe Sakic is up for honors at the Hockey Hall of Fame next season (I believe), so...

Milan Hejduk

Milan Hejduk is the alternate captain for the Colorado Avalanche.  He was drafted by the Quebec Nordiques, but has played for the Quebec/Colorado franchise his entire career.  This past season, Milan had decided that he will extend his contract for 1 year, which will see him play through the 11/12 season in the NHL.  Great...

Alex Tanguay

Another sweet autograph by Alex Tanguay.  I bought this card from a card shop (obviously unsigned), but really looked forward to getting it signed.  I've gotten an auto from Alex before, but really liked the layout of this card.  Thanks Alex, and good luck next season!

Craig Anderson

Wow! A total of 9 days for Craig Anderson from the Senators.  I've sent two previous requests via the Avalanche, and I haven't received them (and probably will never get them back).  Craig has been great for Ottawa, but most likely won't be being able to get into the playoffs this year.  Maybe a 1st... Continue Reading →

Matt Duchene

Matt Duchene, currently tied for 1st on the Avalanche's scoring list and 1st on the team in goals.  Matt is a great young player that will help this Avalanche team back into a playoff spot (obviously not this year).  Matt was one of the two players I managed to get autographs from.  Thank you very...
