Stéphane Quintal Autographed Card
This one's good on so many levels. First off, we're talking about a decent hockey player, but a common one nonetheless, from a brand whose cards aren't worth much either. So, on the regular market, this regular card is not only not worth much to any collector, but some might actually get frustrated to have so many copies of it.
The card is #257 from the 1995-96 Fleer Ultra Extra series, made by Fleer/Skybox at the time, who were more known for their baseball (under the Fleer mokiner) and basketball cards (Skybox).
The player is stay-at-home defenseman Stéphane Quintal, a steady blueline presence who once in a while took the gloves off to protect his teammates. He is seen here taking a slap shoot, something he didn't do a lot of. So you have a rare pose by a local player in the local team's uniform; it may not be of much value to others, but to me it does.
The autograph was taken by someone trustworthy at a team function.
