As you can see, the Vancouver Canucks’ first ever franchise captain signed this card, only to have it bent in the mail. I’m still pretty stoked about this signing, as Orland is considered part of history for Vancouver. Unfortunately, I was too young to remember him play, as I watched hockey […]

This time, Marc has a spot on my blog featuring an autograph on my card which was signed with a nice blue, thin sharpie. Although a little tough to read, I’m thankful that he did sign my Upper Deck rookie card. I hope to catch him again once he comes into […]

I was super (kind of) stoked to see this return, as Gretzky is one of the greatest players to have ever played in the NHL! Although from reading up on Gretz, I do know that he uses an autopen to sign his autograph, and this was […]

Another fantastic return from Andy Bathgate, HHOF class of 1978! These old timers are such a class act. Even at their old age (78!), Andy still takes the time to sign for his fans. You can clearly see his writing is getting shaky, but he still pulls through from what I’ve seen on other people’s blogs/threads. Andy […]

In 2008/09 season with the Brampton Batallion, he scored 80 points in 60 games played. Drafted 75th overall, seems like he’s got a bit of work to do before he becomes a mainstay in the NHL. Good luck Evgeni!

From then on, the Canucks lost four straight games to the Red Wings. On another note, I really hate the look of this card.
