After a 4 year long hiatus, I could potentially be back! Lots has changed as I've since gotten married, had a kid and haven't sent a heck of a lot of TTMs out. I decided to take a look at this again but was wondering... does anyone actually still read this blog? Leave a comment below!

So much for trying to stay consistent with my blog posts! This here is my Brandon Yip autographed 10/11 Contenders card, which I believe I picked up back in 2012 through ebay. Brandon obviously is one of only a handful of Asians currently playing in the NHL, and will hopefully help pave the way for other ethnic groups hoping to make it to the big leagues.

Sorry for the lack of updates guys, I've been busy with other obligations, but will try and make my best effort to blog a bit more. I got this Mark Scheifele autograph, pictured with the Barrie Colts, last year, and I was super excited as this was the Jets' first round pick and first since coming back to Winnipeg. It appears as if he'll be a great player, as he's already represented his country, Team Canada. Thanks for the auto Mark!

A huge return from equally as big, Joe Thornton. Joe is an all star player, who has played many years with the San Jose Sharks. I have watched him over the years, represent Canada, and he's always been a fantastic player. Unfortunately, he recently knocked out the Vancouver Canucks in a sweep. Thanks for the autograph Joe.

A great return from Bobby Baun, Toronto Maple Leaf Alumni. Bobby played in the 50s, 60s and 70s in the NHL and had obviously helped the Leafs win cups in 1962, 1963, 1964, and 1967. Bobby was one of the hardest, cleanest hitting players of his time. Thanks for the autograph Bobby. It looks fantastic!

A sweet autograph from Brain Bradley, shown here in a Vancouver Canucks uniform. He was originally drafted by the Calgary Flames, 51st overall, and played for a handful of teams, including the Lightning and Leafs. He retired after 10+ seasons due to injuries. Thanks for the autograph Brian!

A sweet return from Paul Kariya! Paul is one of my favorite players to have played the game. He hails from Vancouver, BC which makes it pretty neat as he was once one of the elite players in the league. He signed this Upper Deck, MVP card, which in fact wasn't mine, but still happy for the autograph. Thanks Paul!
