Ron Wilson IP

Tonight I went to an AHL preseason game between the Hamilton Bulldogs and Binghamton Senators which was played at the Colisée Desjardins in Victoriaville, QC.

Not knowing in advance who would be on each team's roster, I only brought cards to get signed by Ron Wilson, the Bulldogs' assistant coach (not the same guy as the Maple Leafs coach obviously, who has also played in the NHL). I sat behind the Bulldogs' bench during the pre-game warm-up and I showed him the cards I had through the glass. He didn't mind signing them, so I slipped them between 2 glass boards, he took them, signed them and slipped them back. Here's what I got signed:

Alain Côté & Guy Lafleur IP

Earlier today, Alain Côté and Guy Lafleur were signing autographs at a new Best Buy store in Quebec City. I got in line 30 minutes before the scheduled time and there were not many people in line. While waiting in line, the staff even told us we could take all the time we wanted to chat with the guests and take pictures! How often do you hear that at signings?! I got a card signed by Alain Côté, a puck signed by Guy Lafleur and a personalized promotional sheet handed out by each player. Here are scans of everything:

For some reason Mr. Gladu also signed the back of my custom index card! :o)

Sergei Fedorov

Today I bought this card signed by Sergei Fedorov for a measly $3.95 at my local hobby shop. The autograph was presumably obtained in person in the early 90s, when the Red Wings visited the Nordiques.

Unfortunately, once I got home and removed the card from its soft sleeve, I noticed a half-inch indention/scratch on the card across Sergei Fedorov's head (doesn't show on scan)... Still a nice card to have! And it goes nicely with my beat up autographed Valeri Kamensky card from the same set! ;o)
