Anyway, it seems like it's been forever since any of my TTM requests have come back, so it was a nice surprise to see one of my SASE's in the mailbox the other day.
This one adds three cards of another goalie to my growing TTM collection. I sent these three cards to Arturs Irbe c/o the Washington Capitals, where Irbe is a goalie coach, back in July of 2010, so this one took almost a year to get back to me.
Here's the first one, from 1993-94 Topps Premier, featuring Irbe with the Sharks, where he spent his first five NHL seasons.
Here's the second one, from 1997-98 Score, featuring Irbe with the Canucks, where he only appeared for one season playing 41 games.
Finally, here's the third one, from 2001-02 Topps, featuring Irbe with the Hurricanes, where he would finish his NHL career playing 10 games in 2003-04.
This was a good success, one goalie, three different teams, too bad I didn't have one featuring him with the Stars, oh well. I also really like the fact that Arturs switched up the number according to what he was wearing in the photo on each card.
Here's a cool Irbe tribute video I found on YouTube. Check it out.
