TTM: Chris Osgoood
Received: 4/11/13 (3/4, kept 2011-12 Between the Pipes Decades card)
When I found this in the mail I was super Shocked and psyched to get 3 signed cards by a Detroit legend. Most of my TTM's are by older players I don't know much about but I definitely know who Osgood is.
Statistically Osgood is Detroit's 2nd best franchise goalie in wins and shutouts behind the legenary Terry Sawchuck. He played in the great 90's goal-tending era with Brodeur, Roy, Osgood, and Mike Richter were all just pure great goalies.
A surprise and shocker about his career is that he spent little time on 2 other teams the the St. Louis Blues and the New York Islanders but people will still remember him from his time on a star studded Detroit team with Yzerman, Shannah, Lidstrom and Sergei Fedorov that won back to back Stanley Cups in 1997 and 1998 then later in 2008 still with Lidstrom, Zetterberg, and Pavel Datsuyk. Today Osgood helps out Detroit as their Goalie Developmental Coach
This return helped out 3 sets in my All Goalies, Between the Pipes and 2010-11 SP Authentic. SP Authentic is not a big or poular set but with the player images on a white background it makes the autograph perfect.
