Marie-Philip Poulin & Caroline Ouellette IP

Caroline Ouellette, Marie-Philip Poulin and Kim St-Pierre are in town this week for the Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournament. Poulin and St-Pierre are the assistant coaches of an all-girl team coached by Ouellette. Since their team was playing at an arena nearby earlier tonight, I decided to go at the last minute. Unfortunately, I had nothing for Kim St-Pierre to sign, but Caroline Ouellette and Marie-Philip Poulin were kind enough to sign these cards for me:

Irene Dunne

This one is not sports related, but today I received an autographed index card I bought on eBay of one of my favorite actresses, Irene Dunne (1898-1990):

The autograph is certified by PSA/DNA too!

Ralph Miller

Along with the index card autographed by Irene Dunne I received earlier today from an eBay purchase, I also received an autographed index card (from the same seller) of Ralph Miller, a former MLB pitcher who played for my favorite team, the Dodgers. I must admit I had never heard of him prior to browsing this eBay seller's other items, but I found out Mr. Miller played for the Dodgers in 1898, back when the team was called the Brooklyn Bridegrooms!

Since he signed the autograph at 93 years of age, that means he must have signed it in 1966 or 1967, since he was born in 1873! I'm happy I was able to add this old autograph to my collection for cheap!
