Thanks for the early Christmas present, Mr. Shanahan! :o)

Québec Remparts IP

Tonight the Remparts played against the PEI Rocket at the Colisée and I stayed after the game to try and get a few autographs from players and ex-players from both teams. I wanted to get Joel Champagne to sign a Heroes & Prospects card I had, but I wasn't able to recognize him... I also wanted to ask Corrado Micalef, an assistant coach for the Rocket, if he could sign my 3 OPC cards, but one of his players told me he wasn't in the bus and had left right after the game with family members.

Of the Remparts, Mikhail Stefanovich signed a Heroes & Prospects card for me, but my Lumocolor marker didn't work the first time around, so he signed the card twice (and it looks pretty bad, so I didn't scan it). Fortunately, I was able to get nice autographs from both Dmitry Kugryshev and Danick Paquette on their team set cards:

I then waited for Patrick Roy, as I wanted to ask him if he would autograph a few cards for me. I waited until 11:45 PM and he still hadn't come out, so I abandoned and left... Pretty crappy night autograph-wise, but at least the Remparts won the game! :o)

Doug Gilmour

Today the guy at my local hobby shop told me that they had bought a lot of cards signed IP in the early 90's. After going through them, I couldn't pass up on this autographed rookie card of Doug Gilmour for only 8 bucks!

Nikita Filatov TTM

Nikita Filatov c/o Columbus Blue Jackets - 35 days - 2/2

Now these could be fake, since Mr. Filatov left in mid-November to play for CSKA Moscow, but the autographs looks very similar to some that he signed for someone who got his autograph in person last October, after comparing my cards to his, so my guess is he probably signed his mail before leaving Columbus and asked someone to take care of the mailing (since the letter was postmarked from Columbus)... So, until someone proves to me that they're fake, I'm very happy with these! :o)
