Marcel won 4 Stanley Cups with the Detroit Red Wings back in the 1950s.  He then finished his career with the Maple Leafs through the 69-70 season.  He was a solid defenceman who put up some decent numbers as well.  I sent these 3 cards and again got the 01-02 Fleer Greats of the Game card sign.  I am going to have to do a tally and see how many of these cards out of this set I have autographed now.  It has to be getting up there.

Johnny Bower remains one of the best TTMers there is.  12 days for this hall of famer.  I wrote him last summer and he returned my 8x10 signed perfectly.  I picked up a McFarlane Figure last fall in the hopes that I could get it signed at some point.  I wasn't able to make it to a public signing he was doing, so I thought I would mail it.  This guy is a true class act and a lot of other players could really learn from him.

Matt Duchene.  The superstar for the Colorado Avalanche was in town!  He wouldn't sign numbers.  He did sign jerseys though.  I had this 8x10 and a puck, and he signed both!  This kid is going to have a great career.

Rene Robert signed puck.  Somehow, I didn't have a single card of his.  I have over 80,000 cards.  How the heck can this be possible?  Anyway, I took along some plain pucks in case there was anyone there that I didn't have anything for.
Gilbert Perreault.  I had heard that he hasn't been so kind to TTMers.  He wasn't overjoyed, but he signed for everyone.  I got him on this McFarlane base to add to my collection.

P.K. Subban.  As a Habs fan, this was awesome to get!!!  He wouldn't sign unless it was personalized.  I told him I was completely fine with that as this one is going on my wall.  There were a  couple of "dealers" there who were clearly trying to make money off of these guys.
Brad Richardson.
Billy Smith.  He is always great at this event.  Chatting with the fans and truly in a great mood.  After the oldtimers' games, he isn't so much.

The Medigas Celebrity Classic Golf Tournament is in Belleville, Ontario every year.  It has to be one of the premier golf tournaments in Ontario.  The list of celebrities, is awesome every year.  Here are the cards I got signed.

Brad Park, Rick Middleton, Terry O'Reilly and Butch Goring.  This set is my favorite set of cards ever produced.  Anytime I have an opportunity to get some of them signed I do.  They are from the 01-02 Fleer Greats of the Game set.  I hope that UD will bring this set back in this configuration.  The mostly white background,  makes them amazing for getting autos.

Cody has been battling back injuries over the last 2 seasons.  Hopefully, he can get that fixed because he has immense talent.  If his back problems are clear this season, the Canucks will have him up for sure.
