  1. Hi Jay,

    I'm now retired and in the midst of collecting a card of every player who ever played for the original six (and am beginning to collect the first expansion teams). For those players who didn't have a card produced when playing for a certain team, I've made my own (photo quality - no back) card. I'd like to have some of them signed and was wondering if you could pass on some mailing addresses. In exchange, I'd be glad to provide you with cards of players you are seeking to have autograph cards. I'm sure they would appreciate seeing the uniqued card and I could produce one that they could keep. I can send you some samples of one-of-kind cards if you would pass on you email address. Mine is: kelownanowsports@gmail.com Thanks for your consideration. Cheers, Lorne White, Kelowna, B.C.

  5. Good day Mr. Noble,

    I recently came across some late 1950's Boston Bruins- Montreal autographs from an album.

    Some are labelled while other have the autograph mounted on a card . Hoping to identify several autographs. Can I send you some emails. I think there is a Real Chevrefils, Norman Jacques, Claude Dufour, Claude Evans in the pile.
