March 26

Allan Bester

Diminutive netminder Allan Bester spent parts of eleven years in the NHL. He made up for his lack of size with quick reflexes and self-assured attitude between the pipes. Born this day 1964 in my hometown of Hamilton. I worked with a fellow who played minor hockey with both Allan and Dave Andreychuk. I guess thats one of my six degrees of separation with NHL players. He also played for the Brantford Alexanders in the early 80's when I was living there my first time.

His 84/85 OPC #297 RC is also an UER card. (besides the spelling of his first name). I don't know if this was ever documented anywhere. I will reveal in a later post what it is. (unless somebody comments with the correct answer). I obtained these signatures in person at two different times. I also have two other signed cards that I will try and find and post later. Thats ll for today folks.
