A very interesting autograph from Karl Alzner, currently of the Montreal Canadiens. While I’m sure he has a different autograph, depending on the context (ie. writing a cheque or even signing an autograph for a paid product), it is different. I googled up a few of his images and noticed that there are some very obvious differences between what I got back from Karl and other signed memorabilia.

Overall, Karl has been a pretty successful NHL player, playing on only the Montreal Canadiens and with the Washington Capitals. There was much hype around Karl’s prospect projection and eventually went 5th overall in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. He hasn’t quite lived up to being selected 5th overall but still maintains a steady play to remain a good piece on any NHL team. He’s also maintained a strong “ironman” reputation, having played 82 games in 5 straight season and 7 of the last 8 seasons.
Gettin’ the auto
I got this card back in 168 days via his current team, the Montreal Canadiens. This is the first time that I recall getting back Karl’s autograph through the mail. Glad he moved to the Canadiens where they’re known to forward their mail on to players in the organization.
