Hey everyone, just wondering what kind of hockey stuff you have that you are paticularly proud of. I'm a huge collector of hockey paraphernalia, such as cards, sticks, jerseys, and so on. List a few things of yours, if you like. It's not really bragging, it's sharing.

My top 10:

1. Autographed Wayne Gretzky card, obtained through the mail about 15 years ago.
2. Autographed Gordie Howe card, obtained in person when I met Gordie about 14 years ago.
3. My autographed Nick Schultz game-used Team Canada jersey, purchased off of eBay but signed in person.
4. Montreal Canadiens oldtimers hockey stick, autographed by quite a few notables - Maurice Richard, Henri Richard and Eddie Shack to name a few. Obtained in person when I was a kid and they played a fundraiser game in my hometown.
5. My Gretzky rookie card, bought when I was 9 or 10 years old.
6. My Sid Crosby autographed jersey (not game-used). Bought it off of eBay before he'd played an NHL game.
7. My Dany Heatley autographed game used jersey (even though he was a Thrasher at the time). Obtained by a friend of mine in the NHL.
8. My Paul Coffey autographed jersey, signed after he entered the Hall of Fame.
9. My Messier rookie card, which I traded a Lanny MacDonald autograph card to get from a friend of mine. Man, Leafs fans are crazy.
10. My Steve Yzerman rookie card, which I pulled out of a pack of cards about 15 years ago. It is pristine.

Those are my faves - I keep them in a climate controlled room with an alarm. I'd protect them within an inch of my life, so anyone trying to get to them is looking for trouble.

I had a bunch of old hockey cards...[hundreds and hundreds of them] dating back into the 3 years worth of the old hockey coins....ALL of which my mother sold at some church fund raiser/bazaar in the early 70s after I moved out of the house.

Might have been worth a mint.

Never got back into card collecting again. Never been back to attend a church service willingly either.

Who the cap fits...Let them wear it.

Had a crap load of cards including Gretzky rookie (2), many others from the 80's and quite a few from the early 90's when i got back into collecting.

Crack heads (more than likely) busted into my parents house where they were stored, swiped 'em all. Fockers, prob didn't get more than a hundred bucks for what was a collection worth a few thousand min. I did get insurance money for them, but it's not the same.

I have a puck that I caught at a Flames game in 84 or 85 vs WSH, its surprisingly startling to have a puck come right at you in the stands, I was surprised to actually catch it. My wife also has a pretty well preserved Pavel Bure rookie card. Other than that, I have nothing - not a big collector of the memorabilia.
Lee Marshall Posted - 03/06/2012 : 08:28:27
I have 1 of 1,000 only 'Captain's Row' framed pics. From Teeder Kennedy to MattsSundin plus every Leaf captain in between, including Dave Keon...all autographed. It's my top possession.

Got an autographed stick from Paul Henderson...while he was with Birmingham in the WHA...thanks entirely to my boyhood pal Jeff Jacques [also a fomer Toro/Bull] who arranged for me to meet Paul and then procure the stick.

I also have a stick signed by the entire POHA Junior A champion North Bay Trappers circa 1975. That team include Gaston Gingras and Jimmy Fox.

The final item I cherish is my ''The Spirit Returns" lineup poster signed by all the members of Team Canada the NHL All-Star team they played January 25, 1985 at Maple Leaf Gardens. Proceeds to assist former St. Louis Blues defenceman Ed Kea.

:-)Craven had been right in his supposition[url=].[/url] about the world's governess.
Braybrooke[url=].[/url] had gone away from the Club that evening firmly persuaded that his young friend had done
the almost unbelievable thing, had fallen in love with Adela[url=].[/url] Sellingworth. He was really perturbed about it.
A tremulous sense of the fitness of things governed his whole life, presided as it were over all his[url=].[/url]actions[url=].[/url]
and even over most of his thoughts. He instinctively shrank from everything that was bizarre, from everything
that was, as he called it, "out of keeping.[url=].[/url]" He was responsible for the introduction of young[url=].[/url]Craven[url=].[/url]into Adela
Sellingworth's life.[url=].[/url] It would be very unfortunate indeed, it would be almost disastrous, if the result of that
well-meant introduction were to be a preposterous[url=].[/url] passion!

Best I got is a Hartford Whalers jersery autographed by J S Giguere....
ryan93 Posted - 02/07/2012 : 08:00:31
I haven't really added much to my collection in years, but I have tens of thousands of hockey cards. Nothing really, really valuable though. A lot of cards in the $20-50 range...but that's about it.

I have an autographed white Alex Ovechkin jersey which I won at a minor hockey draw a few years ago.

One of my favorites is a Brad Richards plaque with about an 8x10 photo of him hoisting the Stanley Cup. My aunt had him autograph it during the SC Parade here that summer & gave it to me that Christmas.

Lots of other stuff, but nothing really worth mentioning on here.

I have an autographed Jonathon Toews canvas painting. It is a one of a kind painting done personally for me by an artist I went to college with. I had Toews sign it in person at the very 1st Blackhawks Convention right after he was named Captain. It was the highlight of my hockey collecting life. We had a nice, but brief, conversation about the painting. It is sitting above my couch right now.
Porkchop73 Posted - 08/11/2009 : 06:59:21
My most prized possession is a framed photo of Gilmours behind the net goal on Cujo in the 93 playoffs. I finally got it autographed by Dougie last year when his Kingston Frontenacs were playing the London Knights.
Why is this my most prized possession? I am in the picture. Row 10. Dougie's autograph is right beside me. I get goosebumps everytime I look at the picture and remember that goal. I couldn't see it go in but it was the most electrifing moment at a game I have been to. Had no idea I would be in the most popular photo to capture that moment.
Rambo2305 Posted - 08/11/2009 : 06:05:05

3) Gary Roberts Leafs jersey. Autographed way back in '02. Know his parents lol

4) Jerome Iginla Flames jersey. Signed at the NHL awards last year.

5) Alex Ovechkin East All-stars jersey. Signed at the all-star game.

6) John Tavares Generals jersey. He was parked beside me at GM Centre.

7) Signed rookie cards (Ovechkin, Crosby, Phaneuf, Sundin, Getzlaf)

8) Other non-signed rookie cards (Heatley, Luongo, Spezza, Thornton, Nabokov, Brodeur, Mogilny, Lindros, Modano, Kariya, Pa. Stastny)

9) Doug Gilmour signed Leafs hat. He was in the box beside mine.

My parents were fortunate to be in Edmonton and get playoff tickets for the Oilers, the game they knocked Detroit out of the playoffs in the Conference finals in 1987. My mother grabbed 2 white Oiler caps, one for each my brother and I, and decided to see if she could get them signed by anyone. She went out to where the players were exiting, passing unknowingly by the Red Wings, (mom didn't follow hockey as much, so unfortunately didn't know Yzeman from Adam ), and found a spot to see what was happening.
As she was standing there this guy approached her and asked her if she wanted her hats signed. She said sure, these were for her boys, did he know any of the players? He chuckled and said yes, he should, he was one. It was Kevin Mclleland. Apparently, after signing the hats, he found her so amusing, he went back and told another player to go out and sign her hats, as she was getting the autographs for her sons, but didn't recognize any players.
The other player came out and signed the caps, and I would be surprised if anyone other than my brother and I have memorabilia where Kevin Mclleland and Wayne Gretzky are the 2 signatures.

PS. My mom did recognize Gretzky of course ! According to her, he came out of the players entrance and made a bee line over to her to sign the hats and chat before wading into the sea of much younger fans to start signing autographs.

I also have a perosnalized, autographed 8 X 10 of Laraque in Oiler whites, and an Oilers puck with a personalized autograph from Pronger.
Didn't meet either one, but my brother in law is a manager for a company that are Oilers sponsors, so he gets me some good stuff

I recently purchased off of a starving college kid a Russian Jersey and a Canadian Jersey both with the World Juniors patch from when Halifax hosted them a few years back. Oh yeah, they were both signed by every member of each team...Ovechkin included. Also purchased from the same kid, a puck signed by Zherdev and a poster signed by Ovechkin.
andyhack Posted - 09/01/2008 : 19:07:14
I was cleaning out a locker room recently and amongst a bunch of junk I found two neat hockey-related things that I had forgotten about. One was a Bobby Orr jigsaw puzzle and the other a menu from Don Cherry's restaurant signed by Don. But it's not so much the signature that I find cool but the CLASSIC message from the coach of the famous TOO MANY MEN ON THE ICE team to a diehard Bruin fan who experienced that nightmare in his formative early high school years. Written on the menu are none other than the words "Sorry Andy!". To me, that is more than kind of cool! I actually framed the really cheap paper menu in plexi-glass back at that time believe it or not (was dating a girl from a framing store at the time - most things I've framed in my life probably occured in that period).

More news to update you on: my father as recently as Saturday night told me a story that when he was young, Toyota had a promotion that if you test-drived one of their cars, you got free baseball tickets. He and his buddy showed up in a beat up Chevette, with faded jeans and caps and asked to try one out. The salesmen, knowing obviously what their true intent was, kicked them out before they could say 'baseball.'

An hour later, the SAME kids showed up, albeit in suits and, get this, Mike Bossy's convertible.

(The story was, my dad's friend was tight with the Bossys. Mike was at his friend's sister's wedding.)

This time, the manager welcomed them in, let them test drive the best Toyota car at the time (apparently the Supra) and gave them the tickets. All because of Mike Bossy's car!

All aboard the Price bandwagon

EDIT: Can all the members who look at this join the PickUpHockey Cyber Cup? It only will take two minutes, I am trying to get participation from all the active members. All you need to do for now is read the intro and tell me you will join. Time is of the essence. Thanks guys, I know I can count on you

I have an autographed Jonathan Toews jersey that he signed the day after he got drafted. Maybe worth something someday but has great sentimental value to me as I met him and played street hockey with him that day. Wish him all the best in his career!

My dad recently (last week) got me a signed Ovechkin away jersey, and a signed Maurice Richard hockey stick! Only problem is, Richard signed a lefty stick...
