Mailed on 9//29/08 and received 2/2 back on 11/29/08. This is an AWESOME return!!! Former MVP Joe Thornton is truly one of the best players that I've ever seen play. An out of this world passer and consistent goal scorer Mr. Thornton is a terror to play against. I'm very happy to see that he takes time for his fans and signs ttm. I'd seen alot of Thornton success that took like 3 years to get back so I decided to send him something. Why not maybe if he's signing mail he'll get to mine pretty soon and thats exactly what happened. SO excited to get these back! Cards where sent to the San Jose Sharks.

Mailed on 10/20/08 and received 5/3 back on 11/24/08. Mr. Doug Smail was nice enough to sign all of my cards and two index cards for me. A solid NHL'er and I'm very excited to add these autographs to my collection. Cards where mailed to Mr. Smails home.

Mailed on 9/16/08 and received 4/2 back on 11/21/08. Wow awesome return from a future superstar! Anze Kopitar is one of the main building blocks on a very up and coming LA Kings team. They are going to be good for a very long time. He also signed both index cards I used to pad the envelope. Just overall an awesome return! Cards where mailed to the Kings.
Mailed on 11/3/08 and received 4/4 back on 11/21/08. Very happy to see this one come back, I mailed this to the minor league team that Mr. Parrish was playing on but the day after I mailed the cards he was signed by the Dallas Stars. So I expected my cards to get lost somewhere along the way, but I was very excited to get these back. Mark Parrish has been a great player for many years and I'm glad to see him back in the NHL and finding success with the Dallas Stars! It was very nice of him to take the time and sign all four of my cards very nicely in black.

Mailed on 7/7/08 and received 5/4 back on 11/19/08. Nice return from a young minor leaguer in the Angels system. He even added an extra team set card which is very nice of him to do. Its nice to see a young player taking the time to sign! Cards where mailed to the Cedar Rapid Kernels.

Mailed on 9/24/08 and received 2/2 back on 11/18/08. Sweet return from a great player on the rise! I recently went to a Blackhawks-Sharks game at the United Center and Mr. Milan Michalek scored a sweet goal. It was right off the faceoff a set play, right before the ref dropped the puck Milan skated around from the left wings spot to next to the right winger. They won the faceoff right to him and he shot and scored. Yeah he scored on my Hawks but I've gotta give him his credit on a great goal. Cards where mailed to the San Jose Sharks.
Mailed on 10/14/08 and received 1/1 back on 11/17/08. This is a great return from an awesome young player, even though he signed the smallest autograph ever (well close Jay Bouwmeester) high up in the top left corner. Oh well card still looks great and I'm very happy with this return. Card was mailed to the Boston Bruins.
Mailed on 10/27/08 and received 3/3 back on 11/17/08. This is another odd return. Mr. Matt Carle was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers on 11/7/08 but I received these cards back postmarked from Tampa mailed on 11/12/08. Either the team didn't mail these out right away or something I'm not quite sure. Oh well the cards look authentic so I'm not too worried. Cards where mailed to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Mailed on 5/5/08 and received 2/3 back on 11/17/08. Hmm not sure about these ones....I've heard and seen alot of ghost signed Selanne stuff but I've also heard reports of real signatures. These signatures are very nice which kinda of has me worried. I looked at alot of his certified stuff on ebay and some looks similar. I dont know haha Im paranoid about fake autographs. If anyone has any ideas of comments please let me know and put my mind at rest! Cards where mailed to Mr. Selannes home.

Mailed on 8/28/08 and received 2/2 back on 11/15/08. I've seen tons of Mr. Pat Neshek returns through the mail so I decided I'd also try him. This one took a little long then most Neshek returns but still very happy to get this back. Cool signature from a when healthy, lights out reliever. Cards where mailed to the Minnesota Twins.

Mailed on 7/26/08 and received 2/2 back on 11/3/08. Wow!!! This is one of my favorite returns by far. I loved Mr. Chris Chelios as a kid when he was a Hawks and even though he converted to the dark side (the Red Wings) I still love him as a player. This was one of those requests that you'd love to get back but really don't expect to see it come back. So it was even better when I tore open the envelope and saw these babies in there. Awesome return from a GREAT player. Cards where sent to Mr. Chelios's home at 790 Falmounth Dr./ Bloomfield Hills, MI 48304
Mailed on 4/20/08 and received 1/2 back on 11/13/08. This is I think my longest return time or pretty close. I sent this one out right after Tuomo was dealt to the Carolina Hurricanes last year at the NHL trading deadline. I was heartbroken to see Tuomo go, I was and still am a huge fan of his tough but talented style of play. Nice to see Mr. Ruutu taking the time to sign all of his mail. Cards where sent to the Carolina Hurricanes.
Mailed on 10/20/08 and received 4/4 back on 11/13/08. Great looking signature, very small and neat. Mr. Ranford is currently working with the LA Kings and I'd seen some success c/o the team so I gave it a shot. Very happy to get these back from a great NHL goaltender.

Mailed on 10/25/08 and received 2/2 back on 11/12/08. Great return I love Troy Brouwer and his tough style of play. He's contributing in a physical way and scoring goals with the significant ice times he's been receiving. If he continues to play like he has he'll be in the NHL for a long time. Cards where mailed to the Chicago Blackhawks.
Mailed on 10/31/08 and received 5/5 back on 11/12/08. Nice return from a former Blackhawks and solid defenseman in his years in the NHL. It was very nice of him to sign all five cards I sent. All of the cards are signed very nicely in blue sharpie. Cards where mailed to Mr. Steve Smiths home.
Mailed on 10/14/08 and received 1/2 back on 11/12/08. Once again another player from the Avs who sends out signed pictures instead of signing what you send. I'm ok with this I guess, its much better then nothing. It would be really cool if they gave the players a stack of cards to sign but hey, oh well. Happy to get this back from a young star like Mr. Wojtek Wolski. Cards where mailed to the Colorado Avalanche.
Mailed on 9/16/08 and received 2/2 back on 11/10/08. Nice return from a solid NHL'er his whole career. Very happy to see this one come back. It shows Mr. Peca has alot of class to still be signing autographs after all these years. Cards where mailed to the Columbus BlueJackets.

Mailed on 10/14/08 and received 1/3 on 11/8/08. Another autoresponse from the Avs but like the Tyler Arnason picture its actually signed. I sent 3 cards and he signed none of the cards but thats ok. Very happy to get anything back from a great player like Mr. Smyth. Cards where mailed to the Avs.
Mailed on 9/29/08 and received 1/3 back on 11/7/08. Well I got an autoresponse letter and a signed photo (which is actually signed which is nice). They returned the 3 cards I sent obviously unsigned. I was a big Arnason fan when he was here in Chicago and was a little disappointed that he didn't sign my Hawks card but oh well. Does Tyler Arnason actually get so much mail that he has to do this or is this just a team wide thing? Oh well nice photo, better then most team autoresponse things.
Mailed on 10/20/08 and received 5/2 back on 11/7/08. Signed one of the two cards I sent him and signed all 4 index cards I used to pad the envelope. He kept one of the two 09 Victory cards I sent him, maybe he just wanted one of his first cards which is cool with me. Nice signature and cards where mailed to the AHL Minnesota affiliate.

Mailed on 10/27/08 and received 1/1 back on 11/5/08. James Wisniewski or "Wiz" is currently rehabbing a serious knee injury but he looks to return hopefully soon. Wiz is one of the more public figures on the team, currently working on his own clothing line etc... and a hard nosed player. This is a sweet return! Card was mailed to the Chicago Blackhawks.
Mailed on 10/22/08 and received 2/2 back on 11/5/08. Mr. Jordan Hendry had a very solid year establishing himself in the NHL last season and even though he is currently back in Rockford, I know he's going to be a steady NHL defenseman. He plays smart defensive hockey and will be an asset here in Chicago for the future. Sent these two cards to the Chicago Blackhawks when he was with the Hawks but was soon sent to Rockford so I'm very happy to see these didn't get lost.
Mailed on 10/27/08 and received 2/2 back on 11/5/08. I love Mr. Colin Fraser's hardnosed style of play, he gives 100% every second that he is on the ice and I look forward to watching him for a long time here in Chicago. He signed both cards in bold black sharpie. Look Great! Cards where mailed to the Chicago Blackhawks.
Mailed on 10/22/08 and received 1/1 back on 11/5/08. Nice return, happy to get this card back because I sent this card while Mr. Niklas Hjalmarsson was with Chicago still but shortly after I wrote to him he was sent to Rockford. Signed and returned very quickly anyway! Sweet signature from a promising young player.

Mailed on 6/5/08 and receivd 2/2 back on 11/3/08. This was the first time that I sent mail to Mr. David Newhan but received it after the second time I mailed him. The thing was I think that I sent this to the Round Rock Express and shortly after he was called up to the Astros so I didn't think I was gunna get this one back but I was pleasantly surprised to see it. Both of these Bowman gold cards are slightly creased but nothing to bad, I can live with it. Mr. Newhan has had a long journey through professional baseball and did a fantastic job for my Astros last year in the time he was with the team. Cards where mailed to the Round Rock Express.
Mailed on 10/27/08 and received 6/2 back on 11/3/08. Awesome return from a Blackhawks prospect. A little story about Bryan Bickell, I went to a Peoria Rivermen vs Rockford Icehogs game and we sat to the immediate left of the Icehogs bench which is the team Mr. Bickell plays for. And the whole time during the game this stupid Rivermen fan would yell and holler at the Icehogs players as they came off the ice after shifts. And you could notice the Icehogs players took note of this fan. So the game went to OT and about 1.4 second before the overtime ended the Icehogs scored and won the game on an awsome goal. And most of the players strolled past the now very quiet Rivermen fan with a smile and a laugh but Bryan Bickell just had to rub it in a little bit. Mr. Bickell gets into a verbal fight with this guy and shot some very good comments at him like "You should stand up when you talk to me"(the Rivermen fan was also very short and was standing up but ya know Mr. Bickell had to rip on his height.) So that was very funny to watch and I'm very honored to add Mr. Bickell to my collection. Cards where mailed to the Rockford Icehogs.
Mailed on 10/25/08 and received 4/2 back on 11/3/08. Great return he signed both of my cards and the two index cards that I used to pad the envelope. Crazy signature it's a mass of blue sharpie lol. I've seen Mr. Trent Whitfield play a few times with the Peoria Rivermen and I love his hard working style of play. He makes things happen on the ice with his hustle and offensive skill. Very happy to get these cards back so quickly! Cards where mailed to the Peoria Rivermen.
Ughh another fake return from Mike Modano. Mailed on 5/10/08 and received 1/3 back on 11/3/08. Whoever is ghost signing for Modano (I think its his mother or wife) needs to work on their skills a little more because these fakes they send out look nothing like authentic Modano autographs. And the envelope was postmarked from Detriot just more evidence that this is completely 100% FAKE. I just HATE how some athletes do this. I'd much rather wait a very long time for a return, get my cards back unsigned, or simply never get a return instead of this garbage. Another very nice Modano card of mine ruined, first a JERSEY card was ghost signed now this nice Topps Gold Label card ruined. I mailed these cards to the Dallas Stars.

Mailed on 6/2/08 and received 2/2 back on 11/1/08. Great return from an awesome pitcher. I got a foul ball at Yankee Stadium a few years ago and Mussina threw that pitch so these will be cool to add with that. Awesome signature for a veteran player. Great return! Cards where mailed to Mr. Mussinas home.
Mailed on 10/24/08 and received 1/1 back on 11/1/08. Great return time from a good NHL player. Interesting how he has two J's to start his first and last name and we writes them differently. Oh well nice return very happy. Cards where mailed to the Hurricanes minorleague affiliate.
