Signature Sundays - A Couple of Bernies

Today I've got two more autographs from the 2012-13 Panini Classics Signatures set, both guys named Bernie...

First up is Nicholls.  He enjoyed a lengthy career during an offensive era, and as a result ended up with close to 500 goals (475), and better than a point-per-game average over his career (1,209 points in 1,127 games).

The back of the card talks about Nicholls' legendary 1988-89 season where he became the fourth player in NHL history to eclipse 150 points in a season.

Today's other Bernie is Federko.  Another guy who put up some good numbers during the high scoring '80s.  He managed to rack up four 100+ point seasons and at one point put up 50+ assists for ten straight campaigns.  I've heard many call him under-rated, but I've also heard him called over-rated.  Either way, he's in the Hall of Fame, and he's got a nice signature to boot.

These are my 26th and 27th autographs from this set.  The supply is starting to dry up now that it's been many, many months since the product's release, but I've got a few left to post anyway...

Great Pair of Bernies! I need to eventually get both because Bernie F is a HOF'er and Bernie N was a Devil!
