While at the Ridgedale Mall in Minnetonka, MN for the Mike Modano & Dino Ciccarelli signing, I stopped into the FanHQ store for a bit and picked up a few autographed 8x10s.
One of the things that they have, that I purchased a couple of last December at the Zach Parise/Jason Pominville signing, was two "Mystery Signed Photos," which featured an 8x10, autographed by a Minnesota athlete. I picked up two of them this time as well, and just like last time, I pulled a hockey player and a football player.
Sheppard played for the Minnestoa Wild for three seasons, beginning in 2007-08, and also spent time with the San Jose Sharks and New York Rangers. He is now playing for the Kloten Flyers of the Swiss A League.
Griffith was a strong safety who played eight season with the Minnesota Vikings (1994-2001) and was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2001. He would also play a few seasons with the Cleveland Browns and Arizona Cardinals, before signing a contract with the Vikings to retire as a member of the team.
Those were my two mystery photos, but here's my non-mystery one:
Langevin's autograph was there because he did a signing a while back as a former member of the Minnesota North Stars. He played in Minnesota for only two seasons (1985-86 & 1986-87), but reached hockey's pinnacle as a member of the New York Islanders, where he was on four Stanley Cup winning teams (1980-83).
