I'm not a sports fan who despises players on rival teams. So, while I'm a die-hard Red Sox fan, I don't hate the Yankees. I root against them, particularly when they are facing Boston, but I have a ton of respect for the success of their franchise and for all the amazing players who have called the Bronx home over the decades. Same thing with hockey. I root for the Bruins, but how can any true hockey fan not respect what the Canadiens have done in the last century?
This line of thinking, plus a deal that was just too good to pass up, led to today's Signature Sundays subject, PK Subban:
If you've never held one of these Ice Scripts autographs in hand, I'd definitely recommend picking one up on the cheap sometime (if you don't care who the player is you can find them for under $2 on COMC). They're made of acetate-type, see-through material, and are super thick with rounded corners. They've got some real weight to them too, and the end result is that they do kind of feel like you're holding a small block of ice in your hand. The autos are all on card (or on block I guess you could say) as well, which is perfect. PK took full advantage of all that space with a large, flowing signature that includes his uniform number.
Subban has already nabbed one Norris Trophy, and has a very promising career in front of him. He's one of the most exciting players in the league to watch, and though I had no plans on picking up his autograph I'm certainly glad I did.
