Mike Cammalleri

Mailed on 4/6/09 and received 1/2 back on 4/27/09. Great return Mr. Cammalleri had a huge year for the Flames. Mike is wrapped up in an intense series with my Chicago Blackhawks right now and was nice enough to sign during the playoffs which I really appreciate. I love the silver sharpie but the autograph is kinda small and cramped. But he did sign in on a dark part of the card which with his silver sharpie looks great. Very happy with this return. Cards were mailed to the Calgary Flames.

Johan Hedberg

Mailed on 2/4/09 and received 2/2 back on 4/25/09. I totally forgot I mailed this one out so it was a nice surprise to open it up. I love the signature, I don't know why but I love the wacky kinda crazy signatures. Another end of the year responses hopefully they'll keep rolling in at a good pace. Cards were mailed to the Thrashers.

Riley Cote

Mailed on 3/4/09 and received 5/3 back on 4/20/09. I saw a few successes come from Mr. Cote so I decided to give him a shot even though most Flyers players do not sign TTM. Riley Cote is nice enough to make an exception to that and sign a few autographs. An almost legible signature on all five of my items. It was very nice of him to sign my index cards which I use for padding with most mailings. Cards were mailed to the Flyers.

Ben Eager

Mailed probably around 4/20/08 and received 1/1 back on 4/17/09. I don't have an exact date for this one getting sent out. It can back with a .41 cent stamp so that helped me estimate when I sent it out. A long wait but I'm a big Ben Eager fan I love how hard and fast he plays. He also can score which is great from a 4th line energy guy. This 07-08 OPC is signed very nicely in blue sharpie. A very nice return from a good guy and tough player. Card was mailed to the Hawks.

J.P. Dumont

Mailed on 1/6/09 and received 2/2 back on 4/17/09. Another nice end of the year return... I've seen that Mr. Dumont is a good TTM signer so I figured I'd give it a try. Glad I did because these cards are sweet. I love the signature, I'm a sucker for crazy little autographs like this one. I think its just J.P. but it looks cool. It was another very solid year in Nashville, what we all can expect from the steady J.P. Dumont. A great return from a great NHL'er. Cards were mailed to the Predators.

Alexei Yashin

Mailed on 2/3/09 and received 1/1 back on 4/17/09. A very nice return from a great player! I bought this card off ebay for about $2 in hopes of getting it signed TTM. And here it is now. The card is a little creased by the jersey card like most jersey cards get when going through the mailing process. Also the autograph was a little smeared when Mr. Yashin tossed the card back into the envelope. But its not to bad and the card still looks good. Mr. Alexei Yashin has always been a reliable signer to his home address and I'm glad he takes time for this fans like this. I mailed this card to Mr. Yashins home.

Todd White

Mailed on 12/23/08 and received 2/2 back on 4/16/09. Awesome return! I didn't really expect to get this one back so I was pleasantly surprised to open this one up. Mr. White had a huge year this season with the Thrashers playing very well for a bad team. Interesting signature I can kinda see how it might be Todd White. Hopefully I'll be getting a few more "end of the season" responses back. Cards were mailed to the Thrashers.

Christian Backman

Mailed on 3/5/09 and received 5/3 back on 4/16/09. Nice return, especially around playoff time. Its very nice of Mr. Backman to sign during the playoffs. Cool signature, the Upper Deck card looks great after I rubbed it down with a eraser then sent it off. I'm very happy to see this one come back. Cards were mailed to the Blue Jackets.

George Parros

Mailed on 3/5/09 and received 2/2 back on 4/14/09. Solid return, Mr. Parros is a tough customer for any team to deal with and is a respected tough guy throughout the league. Kind of ironic I get Matt Walker and George Parros on back to back days, those two men have had a few impressive scraps this season. The Victory card is a little smudged from George putting the cards back in a hard plastic case but I can deal with it, its not too bad. Nice return, cards were mailed to the Ducks.

Matt Walker

Mailed on 3/18/09 and received 1/1 back on 4/13/09. I love how hard Matt Walker plays. He was a last minute addition for the Hawks before the season started and he's played at a much higher level then I expected. He provides a physical presence and a big shot from the point. Mr. Walker can make you sweat sometimes when he's got the puck in his own zone, but I've been very impressed with him this year. I like his signature too. Matt doesn't have many cards, this is the third different Blues rookie card I've bought for around $4 and got signed by him (the other two times were in person). I'm very excited with this return and I hope the Hawks give Mr. Walker an extension for a few more years. Card was mailed to the Hawks.

Brent Sopel

Mailed on 10/22/08 and received 1/1 back on 4/13/09. Long wait but a nice return. Brent has been hurt most of this year and when he was in the lineup wasn't too impressive. But he had a great year last year and I expect him to bounce back big time next year and be a top 6 d-man on my Hawks. This is the second time I've gotten a response from Brent Sopel. I liked this Hawks card so I sent if out and now its back. Very happy. Card was mailed to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Mike Smith

Mailed on 10/15/08 and received 1/2 back on 4/13/09. Finally! These few cards I got today break a long streak of no mail. I haven't been writing a ton lately so maybe I deserve it. This is a very nice return from a young star between the pipes. Its personalized, unfortunately he spelled my name wrong. But its hard to see anyway so no big deal. Card was mailed to the Lightning.

Nick Schultz

Mailed on 3/5/09 and received 3/3 back on 4/4/09. A quick return for a current NHL'er, Mr. Schultz is a solid defenseman who puts up quiet but consistent numbers. A cool looking autograph, all of the cards are signed very nicely in thin black sharpie. Cards were mailed to the Minnesota Wild.

Rostislav Klesla

Mailed on 3/17/09 and received 4/4 on 4/3/09. Very fast return, this one came back in a body bag as the envelope was torn to pieces but the cards all came back in OK condition. The jersey card that I previously mailed to Ole-Kristian Tollefsen was a little beat up in the corners but it still looks great. It was very nice of Mr. Klesla to sign all four of my cards for me. All of the cards look great and I'm very happy I got this one back so quickly. Cards were mailed to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Lee Stempniak

Mailed on 2/2/09 and received 2/2 back on 3/30/09. Good return from a solid NHL'er. Mr. Stempniak is currently with the Toronto Maple Leafs so I mailed this one to Canada with my dollar inside of it for return postage. But the card was mailed and postmarked from I guess Mr. Stempniak waited till he got back in the US to mail his American requests back out. Either way I don't really care, I got my cards back. Both of the cards are signed very nicely in blue sharpie which looks good on the blue backround of the card. Cards were mailed to the Toronto Maple Leafs.
