My Picks #85: Matthew Barnaby

Here's another pick that is about the picture on the card more so than the actual design of the set. It's a Matthew Barnaby from 1997-98 Pinnacle, a set with plenty of well, interesting photography. This is probably one of the more unique photos in the set, although it would've been much better without the out of focus player in the foreground.

This one is definitely on the positive side of the spectrum when it comes to fan signs. The photo was obviously taken during warmups, as I'm sure a sign that big would not sit too well with the fans in the rows behind for very long during any kind of game play.

Now that we've seen the lighter side of fan signs, let's take a look at some of the more negatively directed signs I could find with a quick Google search:

Gotta love the love for Crosby in Philadelphia. The one for Jokinen dissing Sean Avery is pretty good too. What do you guys think? Know of any other good fan-made signs out there? Positive or negative?


  1. There was a really funny photoshopped sign that Paul Bisonnette tweeted about. Look up some of his recent tweets there have been 5 or so signs he's shown off

  2. 1. I have that same exact Barnaby card
    2. Fans in Philly are not your normal nice fans considering they are supposed to be the city of Brotherly love and they booed Santa Claus

    3.^ Michael's probably taaking about the famous Tyler Segiun Photoshopped sign.,r:4,s:0,i:80
