Dunc Wilson

Dunc Wilson, Al Hamilton and Jeff Taffe
I was finally able to get my hands on a Dunc Wilson and Al Hamilton autograph.  They were both acquired in a very reasonable deal with a HI member.  The Dunc Wilsons are particularly hard to find. He played a number of NHL seasons and you can read a great piece about his career here. Hamilton's first tasted of NHL action came with the 65/66 New York Rangers.  He remained with the Rangers for a couple more seasons before moving to Buffalo.  He jumped to the WHA in 1972 and enjoyed the best years of his career in the league, playing for the Oilers from the time they were the Alberta Oilers to the time they reached the NHL in 1979.  He was a 2 time WHA All Star and his #3 was the first number retired by the Oilers.  The Jeff Taffe was a cheap buy, another autograph off the wantlist and I like the old Coyotes jersey. Taffe has been bouncing around the NHL and AHL since 2002, most recently having played for the 11/12 Minnesota Wild. 
Richard Mulhern
My only TTM to trickle in this week.  Mulhern was a decent NHL defenseman who played over 300 career games with stops in Toronto and Winnipeg.
