This isn’t the first time that I’ve gotten the Habs legend, Guy Carbonneau as I managed to get him almost 6 years ago, as seen here. As you can tell, nothing has changed with his signature and that’s a great thing! Usually, especially with players that have longer names, they will tend to shorten or abbreviate their autographed items to a short, much more manageable scribble. Guy, known for his playing days with Montreal and to a lesser extent, Dallas […]
This isn’t the first time I’ve gotten legendary Guy Lafleur’s autograph and I sure hope it isn’t the last! While I haven’t actively tried to get more hockey cards of his, he seems to be included (and rightly so!) in many of the sets which include NHL alumni. I first got Guy’s autograph back in 2011 (actually twice), where he signed some really nice hockey cards for me. Since then, nothing literally has changed! He’s still go the same great […]
So, so, so happy with the return on this hockey legend, Larry Robinson who was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1995. The list of Larry’s accomplishments is what earned his right to be nominated and accepted into this very distinguished list. It’s pretty impressive to see how many points he put him with one team, the Montreal Canadiens. This very team was the one that drafted Larry into the NHL at 20th overall in the 1971 entry […]
As always, I’m always happy to get returns in the mail and this return is no different. I’m not too familiar with Phillip Danault of the Montreal Canadiens other than the fact that… well he plays for the Montreal Canadiens. I do recall him being drafted by the Blackhawks in Danault’s NHL entry draft year and that he had played a few season in the AHL with the Rockford Ice Hogs. This isn’t the first time I’ve gotten his autograph […]
A nice return from one of hockey’s stars, Tomas Plekanec, assistant captain of the Montreal Canadiens. Like many Canadian teams, the Canadiens are one of my favorites to send fan mail to, to get autographs in return. They continue to be one of the most consistent signers, where even Carey Price and Shea Weber will return mail in a reasonable time. Tomas was drafted in the 2001 NHL entry draft, 71st overall, in a round which brought fellow all-star Patrick […]

This was a nice return from Mike Cammalleri, the former and current member of the Calgary Flames. He had played for a season with the Flames, back in the 08-09 season, then returned four years later in a trade for Rene Bourque, Patrick Holland and a […]
Date sent: January 21st, 2012 Date received: February 27th, 2012 Total time: 37 days Total players responses: 428 Total 2012 responses: 31 A nice autograph from Habs’ netminder Carey Price. A great goalie, on an okay team, but obviously they didn’t do so well this year. Carey is an elite goaltender and will help lead the team into the post season. I’ve gotten Carey’s autograph before, and he’s been really nice through in person and TTM, being a very consistent […]
Received IP: February 26th, 2012 Total players responses: 419 Total 2012 responses: 22 Going along with the Ducks theme, I present you Saku Koivu. Saku was a long time Montreal Canadien, captaining the team for nine season, but never leading the team to a Stanley Cup. Now he obviously plays for the Ducks, playing in a secondary role, most likely for his experience and leadership on a young Ducks squad. Thanks for the signing of the card Saku!
Date sent: January 21st, 2012 Date received: February 16th, 2012 Total time: 26 days Total players responses: 411 Total 2012 responses: 14 Seems like we’re doing a flashback here as this is another return from Brian Gionta! Brian, along side the Montreal Canadiens in general, have been excellent signers. Brian is the current captain of this historic franchise, but currently have failed in leading his team into the post season. This is his third year with the Canadiens. Thanks Brian!
Date sent: January 17th, 2011 Date received: October 18th, 2011 Total time: 274 days Total players responses: 338 Total 2011 responses: 333 A lengthy return from Guy Carbonneau, clocked in at 274 days. A former player and coach of the Montreal Canadiens, he is currently the president of the Chicoutimi Saguenéens of the QMJHL. I’m actually pretty happy about this return, as I’m always excited to see longer returns come back my way (who doesn’t?!). Thanks Guy!
Date sent: March 11th, 2011 Date received: September 15th, 2011 Total time: 188 days Total players responses: 313 Total 2011 responses: 308 A pretty nice auto from Stephan Lebeau. I had initially had planned to have both Stephan and Patrick sign this card, but after a bit of research, it seems as if Patrick is playing hockey in Austria. I’ll wait until he comes back to North America before sending this card out again. Stephan was a NHL center who […]
Date sent: July 18th, 2011 Date received: August 4th, 2011 Total time: 17 days Total players responses: 290 Total 2011 responses: 285 Nice! A great return from the great “Pocket Rocket” (excuse the jokes)! I’ve seen many returns from Henri Richard, and I’m super glad he returned my fan letter in a quick 17 days. His auto is a bit shaky, but I’m definitely not complaining, considering his age and his consistency. Thank you so much Henri Richard, you’re the […]
