Carey Price, Josh Gorges and Maxim Lapierre In Person!

There was a free autograph signing for this trio of Montreal Canadiens' in Montreal yesterday.  Everyone received a free autographed lithograph, and you could pay an extra $31 for a ticket which got you one autograph from each player.  This was an amazing deal and we were planning going to this when we heard about it in September.  All 3 players were very courteous and signed great autographs for everyone.  They had to be signing for over 3 hours.
This was the free lithograph signed by all 3.

Josh Gorges signed this 8x10 and hockey card.  He said he hated those visors and didn't know why he stopped wearing one, and no wears one again.
Maxim Lapierre signed this 8x10 and hockey card.
I bought a Canadiens' official game puck and had Lapierre and Gorges sign it in gold paint pen.

Now for the star of the far as I am concerned.  Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a huge fan of Carey Price.  I always have been.  I said all summer long that he is an amazing goalie.  The Habs didn't play that great in front of him last year.  If they traded him instead of Halak, it probably would have ranked up there with the Roy trade as being the worst in the history of the Canadiens.  Anyways, I got him to sign 2 jerseys and a McFarlane base for me.  I am so happy to add this stuff to my collection!  I must have looked like a dealer up there, but this stuff is all going up on the wall.

I mailed these cards to Kim c/o Hockey Canada in Calgary.  I have had a couple of successes so far with that team and I hope for more.  She even included a note thanking me for writing her.  This is such an awesome response!  The signatures are amazing as well.  Team Canada beat Team USA 3-2 in the final of the 4 Nations Cup in Newfoundland this year.  They will now be preparing for the 2011 World Championships in April.
