Nice!  A great return from the great "Pocket Rocket" (excuse the jokes)! I've seen many returns from Henri Richard, and I'm super glad he returned my fan letter in a quick 17 days.  His auto is a bit shaky, but I'm definitely not complaining, considering his age and his consistency.  Thank you so much Henri Richard, you're the best!

Sweet, I got my four cards back from Maxime Talbot.  Standing in a 5'11, Max is a Stanley Cup champion, silver medalist and QMJHL Playoff MVP, all at the age of 27!  Not bad for a guy who was picked 234th overall in his entry draft year.  Thanks Maxime for the nice autographs!  They turned up really clear and no ink running! Yay!

A nice return from Michael Rupp!  Michael has been in the league for quite some time now, having played for just under half a dozen teams in his 11 year career.  He was first drafted by the Islanders, 9th overall.  Unsigned, he re-entered the draft a few years later, going 76th overall.  Michael is the only player in NHL history to have his first goal be the Stanley Cup winning goal.  Not a bad stat to be associated with!
