Mark Streit

Mailed on 10/25/10 and received 2/3 back on 11/26/10. One of the premier d-men in the league, Mr. Streit has always been a great signer for me. He personalized both like he usually does and signed both of the cards beautifully in blue sharpie. Its a shame he has been hurt this season, hopefully he is able to come back and be the great player that he has always been. Cards were mailed to the Islanders.

Francois Beauchemin

Mailed on 10/26/09 and received 4/4 back on 11/12/10. Quite a wait for this one but back from Canada after a year safe and sound. Not much of a signature from Mr. Beauchemin but going through a years worth of mail I'm sure he shortens up the signature quite a bit. Mr. Beauchemin is a solid d-man and its nice of him to take the time. Cards were mailed to the Maple Leafs.

Alexei Zhitnik

Mailed on 10/25/10 and received 6/5 back on 11/4/10. Quick return from a former NHL star. Mr. Zhitnik had a nice long career, he was always a solid player. Cards signed in thin black sharpie and he signed each with a detailed signature. They look awesome and its nice of him to take the time. Cards were mailed to his home.

Garnet Exelby

Mailed on 10/25/10 and received 4/2 back on 11/1/10. Very fast return from a hard nosed veteran. My Hawks picked up Mr. Exelby and he is now playing for their AHL team the Rockford Icehogs. This is a great return he signed both my cards and index cards and personalized each with a nice message. He seemed to appreciate the letter, nice to know some guys enjoy taking time for the fans. Also one of the most unique autographs in sports today. I can see a Gx43 and he puts his number 2 in from of his signature. Interesting for sure haha. Cards were mailed to the Rockford Icehogs.

Paul Ysebaert

Mailed on 8/25/09 and received 5/5 back on 11/1/10. Over a year for this one but I'm glad it made the trip back from Canada. Made it back with a .98c stamp on it even though the new rate is $1. Glad I didn't get my card held back for that. Always nice to add a Hawk to my collection. Cards were mailed to his home.
