This is my first autograph from Anton Slepyshev of the Edmonton Oilers. Although Anton was a 2013 draft pick by the Oilers, he only begun his NHL career in 2016 after playing a couple of season in Russia. I managed to get this one after sending it through the Edmonton Oilers’ office which presumably was sent along to him. He returned this card, signed in blue sharpie, in 102 days. It’s a little surprising to me that the Oilers have […]
Got a nice autograph from Ryan Whitney, currently the host of Spittin Chiclets which offers a podcast for listeners. Honestly, I’ve never listened much to them on podcast and maybe I should start it up but it’s an interesting transition from hockey player over to podcaster. You don’t see too many of them popping up but if you’re aware of some, let me know! Ryan, as we all know, has played a tremendous amount of hockey over his 11 year career […]
I was thoroughly impressed that I got back Kevin Lowe of the Edmonton Oilers brass. I sent back to Kevin, in my early days of collecting which has likely disappeared. It’s currently sitting at 2404 days in the mail. Now I can’t blame Kevin, nor the post office as there isn’t any proof that someone is at fault. Maybe it’s because I’ve moved addresses and it was delivered to some lucky sap that got some autographed cards. Regardless, I got […]
The final installment of my hounding session with the Edmonton Oilers. I was so happy to have gotten Burnaby, BC native Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, and is probably one of the harder players to get through TTM (I don’t know if he’ll sign TTM, but I’ve sent out a few and haven’t received any returns as of yet!). Ryan is one of the core players trying to help the Edmonton Oilers regain their Stanley Cup hopes. Him, along with Taylor Hall, Jordan […]

I was super stoked to have seen that he was willing to sign for the fans that were waiting for him. It isn’t every day that you get to meet and take pictures with one of the brightest prospects in the NHL. I managed to snag two signatures from Taylor himself, one on my Donruss […]
A triple dose of Jordan Eberle! I managed to snag Jordan for a few autographs (with the help of my girlfriend) on two separate occasions during the OKC Barons’ stay in Abbotsford. Jordan obviously doesn’t need any type of introduction, as he is one of the most (in my opinion at least) exciting players on the Oilers’ squad. He was drafted 22nd overall in the 2008 draft and is definitely helping to lead the charge of the Edmonton franchise becoming […]
Date received: November 10, 2012 Total players responses: 506 Total 2012 responses: 109 Next auto I managed to snag this trip was from Magnus Paajarvi. He was drafted 10th overall by the Edmonton Oilers, but obviously with the lockout, he’s currently playing for the Oklahoma City Barons. He’s been putting up, probably less than stellar point, but seems to be on the right track to success. He’ll definitely be shadowed by many of the Oil young guns who have entered […]
Date received: November 10, 2012 Total players responses: 505 Total 2012 responses: 108 Yes! A nice jersey card signed in silver sharpie by tough guy Colten Teubert. Meeting Colton in person, he seems like a fairly nice guy, but had a few words for the hounders that were looking for 5+ autographs of the same picture of him. I also saw him on the ice later that evening and he looked scary. Thanks for the signing Colten!
Date received: November 10, 2012 Total players responses: 504 Total 2012 responses: 107 Part 1 of my hounding session of the OKC Barons this past weekend. I got Teemu Hartikainen of the Barons, whom was drafted in 2008, 163rd overall. He is a Finnish player, currently working his way up to the NHL level. Teemu had only played under 20 games per season in the NHL thus far. Thanks for the signing Teemu. He’s a super friendly guy!
Received IP: February 26th, 2012 Total players responses: 424 Total 2012 responses: 27 Andrew Cogliano has been a pretty consistent IP/TTM kinda guy. I’ve gotten his autograph a few times, once in Calgary, and also through the mail as well. You can view his previous autographs here and here. Thanks for the autograph again Andrew!
Received IP: February 26th, 2012 Total players responses: 415 Total 2012 responses: 18 Ok, I’m super stoked about this autographed card. This card turned out perfectly and exactly how I had hoped. When I first bought this card, I was looking at where Dustin could sign. Dustin has been putting up a moderate amount of points, but no where near the potential he could have if he was more aggressive in his play. Thanks for the nice auto Dustin!

I had sent this card waayyyy back at the beginning of the season and at the beginning of my “ttm” career. It sure is always enjoyable to see players return cards where you thought were lost forever, but Andrew definitely made it up by adding a personalized note apologizing for the long […]
