TTM: Jason Labarbera

Sent: 1/28/14

Received: 6/5/14

Last week I received these 3 cards that I sent to the Rockford IceHogs so that Labarbera could sign them. I was a little worried about getting these back because it took awhile to receive but I am definitely happy about this return. All 3 cards are for sets that I am trying to collect signed.

The first comes from Panini's All Goalie which is a set made up of all goalies and the cards are mainly white so that autographs look really good on them. The middle card is from In The Game's Between the Pipes which is another all goalie product looks cool with all the goalie masks.

Finally the third card is from a new set of 2013-14 Panini Score that I am almost finished with collecting the base set, but this is the second autograph from this set. The pictures in the set are really cool. It's really too bad that Labarbera had to be demoted from being the Backup in Phoenix to Chicago's 3rd string/ 1st string in Rockford. I do think he would of done well backing up Crawford and giving time and experience that Raanta needs in Rockford.
