Signature Sundays - Willie O'Ree!

A couple of weeks back I was fortunate enough to land another auto from one of my all-time favorite hockey autograph sets, the Brushstrokes cards from 2008-09 Upper Deck Legends Masterpieces.  Dave H posted a nice one earlier this week, which reminded me that I still had one sitting around to show.  Here's the latest addition to my hockey autograph collection:

Just a beautiful card, from the frame to the painting to the giant, bright blue, clearly legible auto, love it!  There's really no excuse for me taking this long to add this fantastic card to my collection.  For those of you who don't know or are mainly baseball collectors, O'Ree is the player who broke the color barrier in the NHL.  The fact that he played for my local team (and a city that does not always have the best reputation for tolerance in the history of professional sports) is just the icing on the cake.

This is actually my second O'Ree autograph, both of them on card, but I think I like this one a bit more than the first.  If you're an autograph collector Willie would be a great one to pick up, especially since you can always find his autos for less than $15 if you're patient!
