Lanny McDonald Autographed Card

Purchased on eBay.

Lanny McDonald had a 16-year NHL career during which he amassed 500 goals and 506 assists with the Toronto Maple Leafs, Colorado Rockies and Calgary Flames.  The highlight of his career was obviously winning the Stanley Cup in 1989 with Calgary in Game 6 in Montreal, the final game of his career.  I never knew the New Jersey Devils had a 500-goal scorer in their history, it just never happened while they played in Meadowlands Arena (later Continental Airlines Arena and currently Izod Center) in East Rutherford, or while they have been in New Jersey at all.  I don't know what it is but it seems as though there have been so many past NHL greats who had superior signatures when you compare them to current NHL players.
