While at FanHQ last month for the Zach Parise/Jason Pominville signing, I also shopped around in the store and picked up two "Mystery 8x10 Envelopes." Each contained an autographed 8x10 from a Minnesota professional athlete, so no matter what, I figured I would pull one that I'd at least be ok with.
I decided on purchasing two of them, and here's what I got:
Normally, this would be a fantastic photo for me to pull. As the first hockey player to win an NCAA National Championship (1979), Olympic Gold Medal (1980), and Stanley Cup (1995), Broten is a Minnesota Hockey LEGEND!
Unfortunately, last year, I got this exact same photo signed By Broten at an autograph show.
Still a great item to add to the collection, though, and something to add as a trader, as well.
At least this is a new one. Jordan was a tight end for the Vikings from 1982-1994, and was selected to six consecutive Pro Bowls (1986-1991). His son, Cameron, was selected by the New Orleans Saints in the 1st round (24th overall pick) in the 2011 NFL Draft and plays for the team as a defensive end.
I always enjoy opening up these "mystery envelopes," and will probably get myself a few more the next time I end up there.
