Marek Malik

Mailed on 1/30/10 and received 3/2 back on 2/25/10. Awesome overseas return from a guy who I am a huge fan of. For those of you unfamiliar with Marek Malik, he was a long time NHL defenseman who never put up huge numbers but was solid. But Marek scored one of the greatest shootout goals I've ever seen. He was like the 11th shooter or something and won the game for the Rangers. Check it out! I was so happy he answered my question and he gave a really cool answer. The cards didn't turn out so great but I still love them. This is one of my favorite returns to date. Cards were mailed overseas to his current team.

Brian Bellows

Mailed on 1/30/10 and received 3/3 back on 2/18/10. I'd tried Mr. Bellows a few times before and I was finally lucky enough to track him down! Mr. Bellows put up huge numbers throughout his career and is really one of the all-time elite scorers. He had his extended period of time in the league where he dominated. Very happy with these Beauties. Cards were mailed to his home.

Dimitri Khristich

Mailed on 6/3/09 and received 6/6 back on 2/18/10. Quite a wait for these but I don't mind since Mr. Khristich was nice enough to sign all six cards I sent. I was mad cause I found a couple nice cards of him right after I sent this one out as well. Oh well thats what I get for not looking through all my boxes haha. Cards were mailed to his home.

Mike Lundin

Mailed on 1/13/10 and received 4/4 back on 2/13/10. A month return from a current NHL guys is always good. Nice bold signatures on all four cards I sent. Very happy with these. Cards were mailed to the Lightning.

Jocelyn Thibault

Mailed on 12/19/09 and received 3/3 back on 2/11/10. Great return from a great former Blackhawk! Jocelyn was often one of the few bright spots during some tough years for the Blackhawks. I always really liked him in net, but he didn't get the credit he deserved since he played in Chicago. He is now coaching with the Colorado Avs and was nice enough to sign for me. Cards were mailed to the Avs.

Tomas Kopecky

Mailed on 10/18/09 and received 1/1 back on 2/10/10. Glad to get this one back, I didn't have an autograph from Mr. Kopecky before I got this one back. Very interesting looking signature for sure. Did get a bit smudged when he put the card back in the case I sent it in. But overall a very nice return. Card was mailed to the Hawks.

Chris Clark

Mailed on 1/13/10 and received 2/2 on 2/8/10. Very solid player who is a great leader for his teammates on the ice. I mailed these to Washington and he was dealt shortly after but I still received these cards. Very nice of Mr. Clark to do that. Cards were mailed to the Capitals.

Bernie Federko

Mailed on 1/30/10 and received 4/4 back on 2/6/10. Super fast turnaround time from a really underrated star in the NHL. Mr. Federko put up huge numbers year after year but he never gets mentioned with the greats of the game. Even though he played for the Wings he did most of his damage with the Blues. Cards were mailed to his home.

Mason Raymond

Mailed on 11/16/09 and received 2/2 back on 2/3/10. Great return from a young star in the NHL. I'd seen a few successes to him so I decided to give him a shot. His autograph seems to be quickly deteriorating so get him now! Autographs are autographs and I still love these two cards. The OPC rookie card really looks great! Cards were mailed to the Nucks.

Mike Commodore

Not sure when I sent this one out but I received it back on 2/1/10. This one did take a while though. Not the neatest signature from Mr. Commodore, the handwritting looks very shaky. Probably didn't have the best penmanship in school haha. A very solid NHL player though and I'm happy to add him to my collection. Cards were mailed to the Blue Jackets.
