Yesterday I received a TTM surprise. Number 1, it was through internal mail system. I had picked up some McFarlane figures for a fellow I worked with but now in another department (and in another city although still in the GTA). Number 2, since I wasn't expecting anything, I didn't know what it was. A large brown flat envelope.
That's right. A 8x10 b/w signed photo of Harry Watson. (May 6, 1923 – November 19, 2002)
Through his 14 years in the NHL, Watson played 809 games, scoring 236 goals and 207 assists for 443 points. He won five Stanley Cup cups 1943 with Detroit, 1947, 1948, 1949, 1951 with Toronto. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1994 in the veterans category.
I remember my friend telling me he got some signed photos of Mr. Watson back in the day. He had a multi player photo he was trying to get signed by all. I love these kind of surprises. Makes the day somehow sunnier.
