Max Pacioretty TTM Success

Mailed:  12/02/2009
Received:  09/29/2010
Days:  301
c/o:  Montreal Canadiens

This one took a while.  I mailed it to the Habs last year while he was up.  I know that he bounced between the Habs and the Bulldogs a bit, so maybe this one got lost in translation at some point.  He is still with the Habs at this point during their training camp, so hopefully he stays with the big club.  I watched him play in Hamilton in February, and he skates very well.  I am always glad to add another Habs autograph.

Tomas Plekanec TTM Success

I mailed these cards to Tomas last year during the Habs great playoff run.  Tomas had a great season last year, scoring 70 points, but the playoffs were not so great for him as he only had 11 points in 19 playoff games.  I hope he can get up in that area for points again this year, as the Habs have a pretty strong team and could finish in the top 6 in the conference.

I mailed these 2 jumbo cards to Mike Modano in June.  He just signed with the Detroit Red Wings for at least one more season.  The hall of fame awaits him when he retires.  He is one of the greatest American born hockey players to play the game.  I wrote to him probably 10 years ago in Dallas and received a success with that one too.

I wrote to Red Kelly last year successfully as well.  I have started a side collection to try to get the 01-02 Fleer Greats of the Game set signed.  So, this was another addition.  It is a great response from a hall of famer.

Henri Richard TTM Success

I wrote to "The Pocket Rocket", last summer as well.  Both times he included the jumbo Molson card.  The reason I wrote him this time, is that I have started a project to get as many of the 01-02 Fleer Greats of the Game cards signed.  This gets me to 21 total so far out of the 100 card set.  There are some in that set that will be impossible for me to get so I know it will never be complete.  I like the set due to the large white spaces which are very autograph friendly.  Mr. Richard continues to be amazing for TTM fans.  I hope to have a chance to meet him in person someday.
