View Full Version : April Success

April 2nd, 2007, 06:59 PM
Garth Snow and Rick Zombo back today!!

April 2nd, 2007, 09:52 PM
I'm just curious how many each player signed. In person last year while Snow was a player, he consistently signed 2. As GM this year, he's only signed one.

April 2nd, 2007, 10:51 PM
He signed 1 8x10 and 4 different cards. I am kinda surprised he signed all of them??

April 3rd, 2007, 02:03 AM
Signed 2 8x10's for me

April 3rd, 2007, 07:52 PM
Wow, congratulations on the success!

Can you post the Rick Zombo address?

I tried a search on here and didn't find anything.

April 3rd, 2007, 09:05 PM
He is an instructor at the Hockey Academy of St. Louis. There website is haofstl.com and I sent him an email and he responded. The address I used was 17361 Edison Ave. Chesterfield, MO 63005

Garth Snow signed 2 cards for me--a 93-94 Score Series 2 card (in my opinion, one of the best looking sets from the 1990s), and a 93-94 Classic Pro Prospects card.

Branislav Mezei ;)

Oh, OK.


I thought maybe he was another one of Ed's Nobel Prize winning scientists :)

Plus, I'm not very knowledgeable about a player unless he's been on a hockey card in the past 2 years. I've been out of the hobby for almost a decade before getting back in, so if he ain't on a 05-06 Parkie, he's news to me.

Gotta love those old HOFers...they tend to be good signers, and are quick to get your cards back to you.

For the cards you sent Steve Smith what teams were they? I have tried u(unsuccesfully) to get him to sign some Edmonton Oiler cards but i never get a response.

Mike Knuble -- c/o home -- 1/1 -- 12 days

April 30th, 2007, 03:00 PM
Falcon, 12/12 from Clark? How many cards do you send per request? I've been sending 3...4 tops but if you're continually getting success with a higher number I guess I'll start upping my numbers too.


April 30th, 2007, 07:40 PM
cherubichomer: I normally only send 5-6 cards but a player like Gillies who played so many years and has so many diffrent cards, I will send a larger numer to but will not send any doubles and explain in my letter that they are all from diffrent sets. Most players seem ok with that as long as they are all diffrent cards. I would not send 12 of the same card!! Hope that helps you a little...
