Zdeno Chara

Fan letter sent December 19, 2010.

2/4 autographed cards received December 1, 2011.

One of my returns that I completely forgot about for some odd reason, Chara threw away two other Fleer cards, I guess so I couldn't trade them...which was my intention in sending more than one copy of a card...dangit!!!

Dylan Reese Jersey Card

Currently with the New York Islanders.

I honestly don't know when I got this card, because I just found it while looking through the current stack of cards that I want to get autographed.

Comment on autograph collecting.

I don't send fan letters to players' homes unless I can't find an alternate address to send to (such as their current teams for current players or agents or current work locations for retired players).  It might not be the quickest way to get a return, but I don't like the idea of stalking players at their home addresses.  Just a thought based on a comment from someone on my blog.

Brent Seabrook

Fan letter sent May 24, 2011.
1/3 cards returned autographed on May 10, 2012.

It took 50 weeks to get this card back from Brent Seabrook, but I was happy when I saw "Chicago, Ill." on the postmark...although I was really hoping that it was my Patrick Kane cards coming back...or Marian Hossa.  Anyway...
