Josh Bailey

Hailing from Bowmanville, Ontario I bring you Josh Bailey of the NY Islanders! Josh was a high draft pick in the 2008 NHL entry draft going 9th overall. This draft had some serious talent, where 10 years later they're leading their teams to the playoffs. Players like Steven Stamkos, Drew Doughty and Alex Pietrangelo lead... Continue Reading →

Anthony Beauvillier

I recently got this very nice card of Anthony Beauvillier, signed in a blue sharpie which matches well with the New York Islander jersey colors.  As you can see, this card was not prepped at all and if you zoom in on the card, you can see the ink bleeding on it.  While I do... Continue Reading →

Mark Streit

Todays' blog post brings Mark Streit who recently retired from the Montreal Canadiens this year.  He formerly captained the NY Islanders as well as the Swiss team in International play.  It's truly unbelievable how much he has represented his National team, year after year.  Between 1995 - 2015, he only missed three years (2008, 2011,...

Glenn Healy

Oh, a surprise return from Glenn Healy.  I got this return, not even knowing I had sent it out (actually to be fair, my girlfriend sent it out :D).  I didn't keep track of this one, but I'm happy to have gotten a return.  He never really played a full season in the NHL, but... Continue Reading →

John Tavares

Sweet! I'm really excited about this return as I've liked John Tavares ever since he was drafted into the NHL.  He was a key contributor to Team Canada winning gold in 2008 and 2009.  He amassed a staggering 15 points in 2009, scoring 8 goals and getting 7 assists.  John added my name on to...

Matt Martin

Holy cow!  A great autograph from Matt Martin in about a month!  You can't really get much better than that (ok, I can think about 30 other response times which you can do better)!  Matt has been a great player for the NY Islanders and is a great rookie.  I hope he and Tavares can...

Bryan Trottier

An autograph from hall of fame player Bryan Trottier is really something!  Bryan was inducted into the HHOF in 1997 along side Mario Lemieux and Glen Sather.  His autograph was attained at a London Drugs in Vancouver.  I do have to write that I didn't get these myself, but my girlfriend got these for me. ...
