Serving a purpose

Not only does the lack of prep work make 2005/06 Parkhurst Hockey one of my favorite sets, but the Season Highlights subset is quickly becoming one of my favorite to get autographed. Most of the cards feature star players at some career milestone.

The one above, however, is a little different. It commemorates the NHL’s first-ever shootout goal on Oct. 5, 2005, when Ottawa’s Daniel Alfredsson made history in beating Toronto, 3-2.

And while I do pay particular attention to pucks, I also try to have a good reason for getting a specific card signed. This one, I believe, is the perfect example.
