It's been a whole lot of baseball here lately so for this week's Signature Sundays post we're going back to hockey, taking a look at yet another 2012-13 Panini Classics Signatures auto. As you probably guessed by the post title, it's yet another Hartford Whalers auto:
This is my first Burke autograph, and as far as I know it's the first Whalers autograph anyone's produced of Sean. He was the team's mainstay between the pipes from the time he came to the Whalers prior to the '92-93 season straight through the franchise's final year in Hartford. He played more games in net for Hartford than anyone (4 more than Mike Liut, Al Smith beat him out but only if you count the New England Whalers WHA games) and many times I saw him play in person, so I'm glad to have his autograph in my Whalers collection at last.
Enjoy the Super Bowl everyone!
Buyback Franken-set: Heritage, Heritage, Heritage - Well, it seems like after 10 at night is about the only time I can manage to squeeze a post in these days! It's been over a week since I made any progress...
