I’m really stoked that this card turned out really well and that Marek signed with a nice blue sharpie. I sent this one (along with other cards) to the Hartford Wolfpack where he’s currently playing. He was initially drafted by the Nashville Predators, going 179th overall in the 6th round back in 2012 but recently was signed by the NY Rangers after the Predators and his camp decided to not fulfill his contract. Although I haven’t seen much of Marek, […]

Of course, most of us wouldn’t feel bad, making an NHL salary, but Ellis felt that they deserved more because they are […]

He represented Team Canada recently at the Vancouver Olympics and scored a goal that will be remembered as one that actually broke the netting! Shea came out to greet us, and signed everything and I really love the way he signed this card. Thanks so […]

Interestingly enough, he chose his jersey number as a play on his name. Jordin was one of a very fan-friendly team to sign for us autograph hounders.

Shea signed this card, along with a Team Canada card I had sent.
