2011-12 Panini Stickers #255 - Tomas Holmstrom

Watching the Penguins play the Flyers Dec.13 2006 on ESPN Classic. Great game! I've been missing hockey coverage and am very happy that this channel has been playing so many classic hockey matches.

Here's another one of my most recent through the mail success' for todays blog post.

Holmstrom is an example of the Red Wings' drafting senses as he was picked 257th overall in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft. He was been a member of the Wings since, helping the team win four Stanley Cup championships.

Homstrom is known as one of the best at becoming a weapon inside the paint, creating havoc on opposing goalies and porducing a screen for the shot. What can I say - 'Holmer' does the job.

I sent him a couple of cards to have signed several months ago; this first one is from a 2011-12 Panini Sticker, probably my favorite item that I collect through the mail to receive signed.

The other card I sent with my request is from the 2010-11 Upper Deck Victory set. I decided to pick this 10/11 Victory base, it's a nice looking set for TTMing. This Holmstrom auto turned out pretty good.
This card (above) has been added to the Traders bucket as I'm sure there are other Holmstrom fans out there who would like an auto in their collection or a set builder in need of this card.

  1. Nice! I remember getting his auto in person way back in 1997 when the Wings had just won the first of those four cups.

    His sig hasn't changed much since then.
