Wow! Almost an entire year before I got this Rookie card signed by TJ Oshie of the St.Louis Blues.  It’s been a tough few weeks as I’ve seen very little come my way in returns, but hopefully everyone had a great year and have their mailboxes filled with lots of goodies!

Another pull from SP Authentic which has the player playing only a handful of games in the NHL (26).  I’m not holding my breath on the fact Ian Cole will be a scoring machine, but he seems to be more of the stay at home type of defensive player.  Ian was initially drafted in 2007, 18th overall by the St.Louis Blues, but he’s still on a FUTURE WATCH hockey card.  Interesting.  Check back tomorrow….  it’s my greatest pull/autograph/anything.. ever.

Drafted 62nd overall, in 2003 (as the card mentions), David Backes has seen decent scoring production, as this past season he has notched 62 points.  I sent this card back in March, and got it back about a month ago.  Pretty quick return, but since the Blues didn’t make the playoffs, I suppose he had nothing better to do than to return his fan mail!

Cam Janssen, one of the tough guys for St.Louis Blues.  Another hounder called over to him and said “Hey! Do you have some time to sign some stuff?”, to which he replied, “Aww! I gotta walk all the way over there?”.  The hounder responded by saying he’d fight him if he signed some stuff.  He graciously signed my card, but jokingly said “Oh! I gotta sign these f***in’ cards!”.  Thanks Cam for not beating us up.

Brett Hull is a Canadian born American and Team USA member.  He is related to Bobby Hull and Dennis Hull.  Winning countless trophies and records, Hull is a fantastic TTM signer.  Not much is needed to say about his fantastic shot!
