Sergei Samsonov TTM

Sergei Samsonov c/o Montreal Canadiens - 97 days - 3/3

Just as with Alexander Perezhogin, the cards had indentions from paper clips on them, which leads me to believe that maybe the letters are opened by somebody who then clips the cards to the SASE's for the players...

Maurice Richard

Today I received my first ever Maurice "Rocket" Richard autograph! It's on a 4" X 7.75" promotional card that I bought off of a reputable seller on eBay. The signature looks a bit shaky, so he must have signed it in his later years...

Alexander Perezhogin TTM

Alexander Perezhogin c/o Montreal Canadiens - 57 days - 3/1

Great success from this Hall of Famer! He added one signed hockey card and he signed two of the blank index cards (not scanned) used to protect my cards!

Guy Lafleur TTM

Guy Lafleur c/o home - 2 days (!!!!!) - 3/3

This has got to be the fastest TTM return ever for anyone! I swear it only took 2 days for the cards to get back to me signed!!! That's just incredible, even if he only lives 2.5 hours away...

Gordie Howe TTM

Gordie Howe c/o Power Play International, Inc. - 16 days - 1/1

This is by far my most incredible success ever! I had never heard of him signing hockey cards for free for anyone before... Usually he would send your card back unsigned with a signed pamphlet or business card. I decided to try and send him a card, but I also sent him a custom index card which I said he could sign if he didn't want to sign the hockey card. I was amazed to see that he signed and personalized the card I sent to him! Here it is:

He will definitely receive a Thank You note!

Bernard "Boom Boom" Geoffrion

In addition to the 2 autographed index cards of Sid Abel and Chuck Rayner mentioned in my other post, I also received this index card signed by Bernard "Boom Boom" Geoffrion today from a purchase I made off of another eBay seller. Another great addition to the autograph collection!

Sid Abel & Chuck Rayner

I recently bought these 2 index cards signed by deceased Hockey Hall of Famers Sid Abel and Chuck Rayner from a reputable seller on eBay. I've just received them today and they both look great!

Angelo Esposito & Patrick Roy IP

Well, since it's been extremely slow with my TTM returns lately (I've been sending tons of requests but receiving none back!), I decided to go and get some autographs in person after the Québec Remparts game today. My main target was Patrick Roy, since I had 2 cards of him that I've been wanting to get signed for a while now. I also bought the first half of the Remparts team-issued card set at the game, since it included Angelo Esposito's card and I wanted to get his autograph too (he had 3 goals and 3 assists tonight!). I got him to sign my card and then, after a very long wait (almost 30-40 minutes after the players had left), Patrick Roy finally came out and he also signed my 2 cards. Here's the results:

Red Kelly TTM

Red Kelly c/o home - 13 days - 3/3

Two returns from Mr. Kelly in 2 days! :o) I didn't mean to send to him twice, but like I said, I thought that the first cards I had sent him wouldn't come back, so I sent to him again earlier this month. And he signed those cards too! And it's also the first custom index card I get back. Awesome! :o)

Rick Nash TTM

Rick Nash c/o Columbus Blue Jackets - 55 days - 1/1

Red Kelly TTM

Red Kelly c/o home - 211 days - 2/2

I didn't think these would be coming back! When I saw some recent successes with him though, I mailed him two more cards earlier this month, thinking it might work this time, but these are the cards I sent him back in April! We'll see if I get the other cards back eventually! Either way, it's a great success!
