Best in show
As much as I'd like to think that I had a pretty good training camp and preseason of hounding, adding 120-plus autographs over the course of a month, I certainly can't lay claim to the two best items signed during the past month.
That honor, I'm proud to say, needs to be bestowed upon Chris F., another hockey collector down here in Humidity Bay.
Not only does he get Hall of Famer Phil Esposito to sign a retro Team Canada jersey, shown above, but he's also able to get Tampa Bay's Marty St. Louis to sign a Bauer Vapor XXX Team Canada St. Louis model stick.
The other stick? Oh, that's a Vinny Lecavalier-signed Lightning stick that Chris won in a drawing at one of the team's open training camp scrimmages.
Individually, and as a sum, these are the best autographs to come out of the Lightning's camp.
