When I was younger, my grandma (believe it or not) got the privilege of meeting one of the Canucks all-time best goalies. Richard Brodeur; famous for his 1982 run to the Stanley Cup finals with the Canucks; waltzed into my grandma's office. Richard was a nice enough guy to give my grandma a signed book from himself. My grandmother knew I was a crazy hockey fan and quickly called me and passed the book along. This is what the front cover looks like:
Obviously I was pretty psyched to receive a signature from an old time Canucks goalie, but for some odd reason it never occurred to me to actually look inside until 2 years after I received the book. Why?? I have no clue. But to my pleasant surprise there were 10 signed "hockey cards" of old-timers inside.
My favorite out of all my signatures was the front cover masterpiece of Brodeur above. But his signature on a hockey card don't look so bad either!

There it is! That's all the old timer sigs I got for ya! But like most of my posts, I'll leave my readers with some food for thought. HERE is a link to all my Old-Timer Treasures posts. The signatures include Gilbert Perreualt, Kirk Muller, Ron Hoggarth, Doug Bodger, Steve Shutt, Gaston Gingras, Mark Napier, Glenn Anderson, Dale Hawerchuck and Richard Brodeur.
Combined, these players have...
PLAYED: 8486 games
After seeing these names and numbers, what would you value these cards at? One of my goals for this year was to "value" my collection. Whether you as a hockey card collector use the Beckett hockey card pricing guide or not, this is what I am using personally. I'm not old enough to remember the times where others used and went by Beckett, and this was my first time buying it. So I'm rolling with the Beckett and using it as my source.
That being said, there is no way of knowing the specific pricing for all these signatures. I'm a big "number's" guy so figuring out what this is worth is a big deal for me. Although, these do have much more than monetary value to me as the story behind these cards is pretty cool.
So I ask again, what are these signed cards value?
As for how this affects my Goalie Project, this is where my Brodeur signature lands me:
Richard Brodeur - 1/3 COMPLETE! 1 TOTAL
Roberto Luongo - 3/3 COMPLETE! 35 TOTAL
Rob McVicar - 1/1 COMPLETE! 1 TOTAL
Andrew Raycroft - 1/3 COMPLETE! 6 TOTAL
