Some Updates

I changed the Gilmour from a Leafs number set to a Flames 89 Jersey set. I really like the way the Reggie Leech #27 turned out.

More of that Eberle Kid

It was purchased by auction at a
a Regina Pats fundraiser. Signed by both Eberle and Colten Teubert.

Glenn Anderson Video in My Youtube Channel

Just above this post, click on the link below Nystrom. It may appear he just walks by but never stopped for anyone, even for the people that dished out $120 for players to sign their Oldtimer jersey. A guy beside me was commenting, Anderson had not come out yet. The security guard said that was it and we were to head back up. I told him as we walked away Anderson never comes out for these.

Here's the Loot

Not a bad nights haul.

Bernie Nicholls Ranger Jersey

Bernie Nicholls Plastic stand

Trottier OPC Rookie

Nicholls OPC Rookie Card

Craig Simpson Oilers Puck, Trottier Islanders Puck

Anyways, Dave Ellett Leafs Puck,
Gary Leeman Leafs Puck,

All the players except Ronning and Anderson, they hate fans....

Don't Have My Stuff But Here's The List

We went to the skate with the legends last night. Usually three players will come out to skate with fans. Last year was Gingras and Mann. This year Gary Leeman, Jimmy Mann and Bob Probert. The story will have to come Sunday, lots to tell but I'm on my Blackberry. Here's the list: Leeman-puck and Leafs jersey
Mann-Nordiques puck
Probert-Wings puck
Nicholls-Rangers puck and jersey, Black Hawk plastic thing plus OPC rookie card
Trottier-Islanders puck and OPC rookie card
Ellett-Leafs puck
Simpson-Oiler puck
Billy Smith-did not sign a puck saying he was under contract and can't sign pucks and apologized. He offered to sign something else but I had nothing. I told him he had signed for me before so not to worry. He aplogized again. Great guy, getting turned down is fine when its done respectfully.
Oldtimer Jersey signed by all the guys but these two jerks.
Cliff Ronning and Glenn Anderson both walked by ignoring our request. But we video taped Anderson igoring myself and kids and walking right by everyone. I plan to post on youtube Sunday.Be careful Glenn, can't be an ass all the time without being caught.

1989-90 OPC Wax Break

My wife and I attended an antique show this past weekend. Mostly junk if you ask me but I came across a OPC 89-90 full box of hockey cards. I was interested not because I need any but a chance to pull a Sakic or Fleury RC. I thought for the $3 a pack what the heck. My first pull will not be available to be posted because I laughed and gave them back to the fellow to give to a kid. I wandered around a little and went back to get 1 more. The pack was ripe with old players so I thought another 3 bucks blown, til the last card, a short Calgary Flames rookie name Theoren Fleury. Oh yah! A fun way to spend an afternoon and some neat trinkets along the way.

Wayne Gretzky Signed Oiler Number

Purchased from a reputable dealer in town, Gretzky was here 1 month ago and was a very kind signer as we know. This person was able to get this signed during the two days Wayne was in town. Will turn into a Oilers jersey soon.

CFL Football--Saskatchewan Rough Riders IP

At our local Rider store this morning, two of the best CFL football players made an appearance signing autographs. 2008-2009 CFL Rookie of the Year, Weston Dressler and Darion Durant signed autographs from 11:00am to 1:00pm. No catch, just promoting the Rider store and upcoming season. They snuck up behind the waiting 100 or so fans and smiled for every man, woman and baby and camera. We were there by 10:25 to be 30th in line so not too bad. I had a football, picture and jersey to get signed by both players, my wife had a #7 to be turned into a Dressler jersey, and her new Rider shirt to be autographed. Rider players are always nice, the team sells itself as a provincial team and most players tick around in the off season to work other jobs, most love living in Saskatchewan. Durant even signed a new contract moving into his option year. We got our stuff signed and both got pictures with the guys and headed off. We ran into someone we knew and they were messing around, grabbed my ball (not realizing it was signed) and the paint smudged. UGGGGGHHHHHHH. I was mad but could not say anything. But I went to SportChek and bought another ball, told them to get it signed because my paint pen blobbed on the other ball. So they did and I ended up with the other ball signed. Now, if you have never heard of Weston Dressler, click here to see this amazing football player. 3-4 inches taller and he's making millions in the NFL.

Jordan Eberle Signed Team Canada Jersey IP

This was the last time we would get the chance to see Jordan Eberle play in the WHL or get to see him play for $16.50 instead of $50 at an Oilers game next year. The Saskatoon Blades played the Regina Pats last night a CUC. We arrived early to the rink to see what was going on and quickly went to our seats. We were stocked with pucks and I wore my Team Canada Junior Retro jersey, you know to have on hand. I was waiting for my wife as she bought some popcorn and noticed a Sutter walking towards me. My wife said I looked like a sheepdog as I turned my head and started following him. If you are any kind of a hockey freak or Canadian, you know a Sutter when you see one. I knew it was either Rich or Ron, again if you are hockey freak, you know what that means. I asked him to sign a Team Canada puck and he said, "Sure."
I thanked him and walked off, hmm, we never get skunked. The game began and we just hung out and watched. We live close to Saskatoon but ended up cheering for Regina. We figured out where the Pats would get on the bus so we knew we would have a few chances to get Eberle.
My name was called for something and I thought it was for a Blades signed jersey, stupid me...I ended up in a 'Mad Dash' with pucks for concert tickets, yah let's just say concert tickets.
The third period was coming to a close and I knew we had to get close to the Regina bench. My wife stood close and Eberle walked by twice. The Shaw cable guy was standing on the ice and Eberle was the first star, scoring two goals in the 3-2 victory over the Blades. We knew the game, Eberle would come out for the interview. Sure enough, he came out did his interview and came back to sign for us. My wife got a puck signed for a huge Eberle fan student of hers. He even personalized it. She got another puck signed for herself and I asked for the jersey to get signed. I mentioned that we both volunteered for the World Juniors and we not able to ask for autographs from the players. He smiled and signed the jersey, really taking his time. We both thanked him and headed for the doors. I ran into Jeff Odgers, a 12 year NHL veteran, working as a colour guy for Shaw cable. WE are from same area so I said who I was, remembering I have not seen him in 20 years, and asked about his brother. We chatted for a bit, introduced him to my wife. On the way out the door, there was a Blade standing siging for people. I walked up really not know who that was but thought why not? He signed on Lukas Sutter. I laughed to myself and asked him, "Any relation?"
He smiled and looked up at me, and without answering, I knew the answer. He smiled and said, "Rich is my dad."
We called it a successful night and headed home. Some Timmy's was a nice night cap for the 1hr drive home.

Schenn and Gretzky

Well, if you have been reading my blog for any time, you could have guest this card would end up in my possession. I did not want to mess around with the auto or jersey cards just went for the top prize. It is rated a 3 and is not perfect by any means. But its a rookie card that I can afford so be it!
