I was really excited to see one of my own envelopes in the mail today, my first through the mail success! This puts me at 1 / 4. The player is: Karl Alzner.

Well now I am 0-for-3 with my project... got back a Dany Heatley autographed postcard, but unsigned cards. :( All the cards I made are out, so I hope to get some signed soon.

Wish me luck!
I try and catch Oilers games, they aren't on TV often and sometimes I'll watch online... today it was on TV but I decided to skip it. I checked the NHL Scoresheet and it was 4-1 with about half a period left in the game... I was like, ahh I'll just skip this one, it's almost over.
I just checked NHL.com again, and saw 8-1 final . Checked the scoresheet, hoping that Gagner has some points/goals... and his first NHL hat trick!! I can't believe I missed the
