I am going to do this through the mail a bit differently. While really following hockey on a national scene last year, one of the players I noticed making a big impact on his team was TJ Oshie. Last year (October 15) I sent out a request care of the St. Louis Blues. A year and eight days later, I got it back with this beautiful signature.
If you don’t know him yet, you will. He has already gained to notariety of one of the most loved Blues. Last season was his rookie year and in just 57 games he scored 14 goals and 25 assists for 39 points. He also won NHL’s Goal of the Year award for the goal he scored in the video below:
Some other things you may not know about TJ, his jersey sold out in most Blues stores. Considered the most popular jersey last season. His free autograph signings last for hours for the sheer amount of people who would show up. He was even named as a write in candidate to become the mayor of St. Louis <link>.
As for Oshie’s cards, they are expensive on the secondary market. His better autographed cards are going to set you back about $80, while even his “cheaper” autographs are running around $25 pretty consistently. A year is a long time to wait for a through the mail autograph, but I think it was worth the wait.
What do you think of TJ Oshie?
