Two out of three ain't bad

Don't be sad. Cause two out of three ain't bad. I'm referring to the incarnation of Toronto's Kid line of  Rocky Ray Saganiuk, John Murray Anderson and Lawrence Joseph Boschman. I recently picked up this autographed Sherwood PMPS left handed stick.
Near the knob is this black ink autograph of Rocky Saganiuk.

Under the D in Sherwood is a blue ink autograph of John Anderson, which has faded badly.

And getting progressively worse, the invisible (no autograph) of Laurie Boschman.
Brings back memories of that Leafs team. From Punch Imlach being brought back as coach, the trading of Lanny McDonald and Tiger Williams and bringing back Carl Brewer, the soap opera that was named Ballard was in full effect. Never a dull moment.

NHL Alumni Tour 2016-Brantford-25 years old

Long time, no post. Last night was the annual NHL Alumni Tour in support of the Torch Run.

Here's the autographs I obtained in person.

I had Mark LaForest sign this wire photo for my collection. He remembered that I gave him one last year and said he still had it in a good place. I guess when you played 25 games for the Leafs, there aren't too many photos available.

Mike Krushelnyski  86/87 OPC # 193 and 85/86 OPC # 49

Dave "Tiger" Williams 86/87 OPC # 6 and 80/81 OPC # 105

Owen Nolan 90/91 ProSet #401 and 90/91 Upper Deck #352

Dave Andreychuk signed wire photo

Dave Andreychuk 90/91 Upper Deck # 41
Bryan Muir-CIC 

At last, got the last autograph to finish off this Leaf Alumni poster. You can read here when I received the poster and the one autograph I was missing.

All in all, a very productive night. Nolan and Andreychuk were new this year so hopefully they'll be back next year. Here's the link to the rest of this year's tour.
