Returned: 5/29/12

Wow, first of all this was a really fast return from one of the players from the Classic Scooter Line with Stan Mikita and Ken Wharram  from Chicago.

and it helps my collection of Blackhawks Tall boys, and 1970 Topps/O-Pee-Chee Blackhawks cards.

TTM: Matt Climie

This was a interesting return from the Chicago Wolves Netminder. I originally sent a Panini All Goalies card which I have seen signed before but he seemed to keep mine and return 3 signed photos of himself. ity The Houston Aeros card has the best quality as to the Wolves photo which is medium quality. But never the less 3 cool signed photos which after researching are from google (so he printed out photos and signed them). He shared time this year in Chicago with Canucks prospect Eddie Lack. Since Lack seems to be the one that takes either Luongo's or Schnieder's spot on the Canucks whoever leaves, Climie will most likely stay in Chicago and be a Emergency call up.

 This is a funny photo of him making a save in front of a tiny net.

TTM: Anders Lindback

Sent: 3/30/12
Returned: 5/19/12

Drafted by Nashville Predators 7th round (207 overall) 2008 NHL Entry Draft

Lindback spent this season backing up Vezina Trophy finalist Pekka Rinne and see him continue being the back up as long as he is in Nashville or plays behind a Stellar goalie. Don't get me wrong he is a good goaltender himself but will be hard to compete with Pekka Rine.

This put 20/100 of the All Goalies cards signed

TTM: Jaroslav Halak

Sent: 1/20/12

Returned: 5/16/12

Drafted by Montreal Canadiens 9th round (271 overall) 2003 NHL Entry Draft

 This is another big return and the 3rd from the St. Louis Blues Organization. Halak had a pretty solid year this season sharing time and a Jennings Trophy with Brian Elliot. The St. Louis Blues picked him up after a Huge break out postseason in 2010 shocking the hockey world and going all the way to the Eastern Conference Finals. The Blues didn't do too bad this year until the met the waaaay underrated Los Angeles Kings.

The All goalies card is a solid auto and the Future stars card is a bit choppy but at leat it didn't gut smudged.

TTM: Sergei Bobrovsky

Received: 5/14/12

This a pretty sweet return, It's has a solid blue signature with inscribed #35. Also don't mind the fact that Bobrovsky is a future starter goaltender. He actually had a pretty good year in Philadelphia when he got time behind "Mr. Universe" (Ilya Bryzgalov.) Hard to compare with the standout year he had as a rookie but still a pretty good season. This puts the all goalie set at 17/100 with a few more currently in the mail still.
