Tim Thomas TTM

Tim Thomas c/o Boston Bruins - 714 days (!!!) - 6/2

This is the return that took the most time for me so far! It arrived even though the postage on my SASE was now insufficient... In addition to my 2 cards, Mr. Thomas also signed the 4 blank index cards used to protect my cards!

Québec Remparts IP

Tonight was the presentation of the 2008-09 edition of the Québec Remparts at Place Laurier in Québec, QC. There was also a free autograph signing session with the whole team afterwards. Unfortunately, there were a few players missing because they were at their NHL camps. Patrick Roy wasn't there either, as he was in Montréal for the press conference announcing the upcoming retirement of his jersey number by the Montréal Canadiens. I got the sheet that they were handing out signed by every player who was there. I also got these 2 cards autographed:

Kelsey Tessier insisted on personalizing the autograph, which is usually done to prevent dealers from selling their autographs on eBay. I don't know why he thinks he has to do that, as a dealer probably couldn't get $0.99 on eBay for an autograph of his...
