Why go after this autograph: This is one that I almost forgot about since it’s been nearly 6 months since I sent it out. I did my homework on this one. I had read that Patrick was signing autographs through his junior team. So off I sent it and when I didn’t get it back within 2 months, I had given up. This one means a lot to me because growing up as a fan of hockey in the 80s and 90s he was THE best goalie in the league. Now Brodeur has his previous record of career wins, but Roy has more rings, at least for now. Roy is always going to be remembered though as one of the top five players to ever play the game. The autograph is not a pre-print and it doesn’t look like a robo penned signature either. So thumbs up on this one!
