Gaye Stewart TTM

Gaye Stewart c/o home - 21 days - 3/3

This is a weird return for me as Mr. Stewart died the day after he sent me those (the envelope was postmarked November 17 and he died on November 18). It just goes to show how he took care of his fans right until the very end! My condolences to his family...

Ryan Bourque IP

Today the Lewiston Maineiacs once again played against the Québec Remparts at the Colisée. I figured this was my chance to get some cards signed by Stéphane Fiset, who was at Friday night's game between those same 2 teams... After the game, I looked for him where the players come out, but he was nowhere to be found. Oh well, at least I got a card signed by Ryan Bourque!

Québec Remparts vs. Lewiston Maineiacs IP

Earlier tonight I attended the game between the Québec Remparts and the Lewiston Maineiacs at the Colisée and stayed after the game for autographs. The first autographs I got were from Steven Finn, who's now the Maineiacs' assistant coach:

A few minutes later I spotted Mr. Finn chatting with Stéphane Fiset, who's now an agent. Unfortunately, I hadn't brought cards of him, not knowing he'd be there. About the same time, I almost got to ask Kirill Kabanov to sign my card as he jogged around the Colisée after the game, but I wasn't quick enough... :o\

From the Remparts, I was able to get these cards signed by Louis Domingue and Joël Champagne.

Once again, I set out to try and wait for Patrick Roy. It got to a point where there were only me and a guy who wanted to get his Habs jersey signed waiting. I ended up catching Mr. Roy as he was about to leave the arena and he signed the 2 cards I had:

Needless to say, I'm pretty excited that he completed the dual card that was already signed by Martin Brodeur!

Ryan Bourque IP

Earlier tonight I went and saw the Québec Remparts play against the Montréal Junior at the Colisée. After the game, I got this card signed by Ryan Bourque:

My friend and I then waited for Patrick Roy to come out. We knew he usually came out much later than the rest of the team, but when he wasn't out by 11:30 PM, we decided to leave! I'm sure I'll get a chance to get him to sign my cards some other time... :o)
