Chris Pronger TTM

Chris Pronger c/o Edmonton Oilers (!) - 279 days - 2/2

This was sent to Mr. Pronger during the 2005-06 playoffs, back when he was still with the Oilers! One thing I don't understand is that on the envelope, it says that it was mailed on Feb. 22, 2007 in Regina, Saskatchewan, but the Ducks played in Anaheim on Feb. 20 and in Dallas on Feb. 23, so I don't see why it would have been mailed from Saskatchewan! Maybe Mr. Pronger still knows someone up there who took a month before mailing his envelopes following the Ducks' game in Edmonton in January? Oh well, it sure looks like his autograph and the cards both look awesome!

Ted Kennedy TTM

Ted Kennedy c/o home - 48 days - 2/2

Unfortunately, one autograph smeared and the other lost most of its ink on the envelope, I guess. I might send to him again next year... The cards also came with a letter from his assistant thanking me for my letter and my interest in hockey and saying that my cards were returned signed by Mr. Kennedy.

Bob Pulford TTM

Bob Pulford c/o Chicago Blackhawks - 28 days - 1/2

He didn't sign my Missing Link card and the one card he signed got damaged in the mail... At least it's not too damaged!

Not only did Mr. Esposito sign my card, but he also sent it back in a top loader, which was very surprising!

Ex-Nordiques Signing Session

As part of the Québec International Hockey Pee-Wee Tournament, some Ex-Nordiques were signing autographs at the Colisée throughout the day. I got Stéphane Fiset, Réal Cloutier and Gaétan Duchesne to sign these 3" X 4½" blank cards for me :

Mark Messier IP

I had these 2 cards autographed by Mr. Messier with the help of my friend Stéphane after the mini-Rangers game. Both cards look awesome!

Mark Messier IP

Once again this year, Mark Messier is at the Quebec International Hockey Pee-Wee Tournament with the New York Rangers AA Pee-Wee team. I went to their first game tonight and was able to get his autograph after the game.

EDIT: I don't have this card anymore as I gave it to a friend of mine who helped me get another card autographed by Mr. Messier, on February 17...
