    No work? Plenty of hobby time! Lots of new PC pieces!

    He guys,

    Long time no show and tell eh? Figured I'd post what I've been up to hobby wise lately. As some of you may know, I attended the 2016 Winter Classic in Foxborough and collected all the SPGU cards from that event and framed them in a custom job so, since I attended the NHL Classic 100 in Ottawa between the Habs and Sens in 2017, I just had to do the same thing. While the checklist was shorter this time, the chase was quite a bit harder. The net cords weren't that bad, although I thought it was somewhat annoying that there were 2 different Price net cords...mainly because I bought the same one twice DOH! But in the end, I got them all. The GU pucks were harder though, there were 4 this time around, Price, Gallagher, Drouin and Shaw. Gally was an easy enough ebay job, Drouin was an easy trade on epack but Price? Good grief...there was one insanely priced on eBay and another one on epack where the guys just wouldn't (for some reason) sell to me. What's a collector without their friends right? I got our resident Price collector @RGM81 to buy it for me off the guy and just transfer it my way afterwards but after all that, there was still the small matter of Andrew Shaw...I looked everywhere and just couldn't find it and then...a friend on Facebook told me one had sold in a group on there and when I reached the guy who had bought it months ago, he sold it to me for 20$ saying that since it was the last one I needed, it would be in a better home with me :). So, on the first day of my 3 weeks off, I started putting together my new frame and here's the finished product:

    Item number two on the list hobby wise was to get my Nordiques jersey signed by the 3 Stastny Brothers who were going to be in town for the unveiling of their memorial in Qc city on August 8th. I made my way to the Centre Videotron and witnessed the unveiling of a brilliant piece of art (if you ask me - and I ended up on TV explaining why after being interviewed by a journalist lol) but wasn't able to get the jersey signed...Thankfully, I knew a guy from Montreal who was holding a private signing with the brothers the next day so I just stopped by his hotel, gave him the jersey and 24 hours later, my old Fleurdelysé was signed! Now, make no mistake, I'm not a Nordiques fan and never was but my dad, on the other hand is. He loved that team so come Christmas, that beautiful signed piece of history will be wrapped up and waiting for him under the tree, He's going to be over the moon so, so am I!

    Item number 3 on the list was getting Patrick Roy ( the coach and general manager of the Quebec Remparts right now) to sign my two mini Stanley Cup from 1986 and 1993. Thankfully, the Remparts training camp just happened to occur during my holiday so I checked the schedule and made my way to the Pavillon de la jeunesse where the on-ice sessions were meant to take place. I got there bright and early and noticed that the head coach wasn't on the ice putting the youngsters through their paces but I just knew he had to be watching... So I started looking around and eventually noticed that high up in the media area, there were three guys watching intently and taking notes... I climbed up almost all the way up there and sure enough, Roy was there...Safely tucked away in a press box with a lot of glass around him... I went through the exit upstairs and saw that there was only one way he could come out of that media box (and back in before the second on-ice session) and decided that I'd wait there come 10:55, minutes before the second session. At 10:45, when the first session wrapped up, he exited the box and I let him go without making contact, thinking I was better off letting him have his break first. When he came back upstairs though, there I was, standing alone with my two mini Stanley Cups and I asked him if he would be willing to make my day by signing them. Sure enough, he said it would be his pleasure and he did so. So here they are:

    Cup 86.jpgCup 93.jpg

    So, the 1986 cup is now signed by Patrick Roy, Chris Nilan, Stéphane Richer and Mats Naslund. While the 1993 one is signed by Patrick Roy, Mike Keane, Brian Bellows, John Leclair, Patrice Brisebois, Denis Savard, Jessie Bélanger, Benoit Brunet, Stéphane Lebeau and Mario Roberge.

    Final item on the hobby agenda for my holidays, getting my Remparts jersey signed by Guy Lafleur. See, a few years back, I got a Remparts jersey and decided to try and get it signed by all the players who had their numbers retired by the team. When Radulov decided to sign with Montreal, he came to Québec city for a signing session to thank the Remparts fans for the years he had in Québec so that's when I got the first one. Then, about a year later, the Canadiens Alumni were playing in my home town and for some reason, Simon Gagné was with them so I was able to get him to sign it there and this summer, in June, Phillip Danault held his annual golf classic in Victoriaville and had invited Marc Edouard Vlasic so I got his signature there...That only left Guy Lafleur to go... I decided to gamble and use the info on the Sportscardforum Through the Mail app... I wrote him a letter, put it with the jersey along with a sharpie and a return enveloppe, hoping he would agree to finish my project for me and lo and behold, he did! So, here's my Remparts jersey signed by those 4 players who have market the franchise:

    The want list at this link features what I need of Giroux, Couturier, Ottawa Senators, and Miscellaneous set. If you have nothing from it I will consider CFL cards, current Senators, Carey Price, Guy Lafleur, Patrick Roy (Habs), vintage hockey (pre 1970) and trade bait.

    Thanks and Happy Trading.

    Those two cups are awesome, congrats on getting Roy's auto. Sounded like an awesome experience!

    Very nice custom frame job on those NHL 100 Classic cards. That turned out to be quite the piece for your collection. Well done, Karine!
