This blog post is going way off the map, since I don’t believe I’ve ever gotten an autograph on an NCAA hockey card. As seen here, David Emma, was a Hobey Baker Award winner in 1991 with the Boston College Eagles and had a very promising career. The award is given to the best college hockey player that year and is obviously named after HHOF Hobey Baker. There have been some very notable winners that have gone on to successful NHL careers such as Paul Kariya, Johnny Gaudreau and Jack Eichel.
David Emma ended up being drafted by the New Jersey Devils in the 1989 NHL Entry Draft. Unfortunately for David, he only played a total of 34 NHL games for the Devils, Panthers and Bruins. He did suit up Team USA on a number of occasions but never won a medal with the team.
Gettin’ the auto
This hockey card, showcasing David Emma with the Boston College Eagles in the year that he won the Hobey Baker Award. It’s a great card and great signature by David, which I’m sure he signs a handful each year. Through my research, I’ve seen a few people get David’s autograph which was sent to his work in just under a month.
If you can’t make the NHL, you teach those who can about what they can do with their finances!
