3/19/07 - Guy LaFleur

This one is probably my favorite piece in terms of visual impact. First of all, you have one of the greatest hockey players in history skating through the rink in a great action shot. Then you have the red white and blue colors, and his matching blue autograph against the white background of the ice. Just looks so fresh and clean. Guy is one of the best signers in the hockey hall of fame. I got this one for my boss, who grew up in Montreal during Guy's hey day. I had to get Canadian stamps for the return envelope, so I went through quite a bit of trouble, but it was worth it. My boss was pretty excited to receive this. Guy also ended up signing the inside of the magazine where his article appears. That was pretty unique too.
