    Thanks for the list.

    A update - Bill Juzda passed away a few days ago

    Also have there been any successes with Jean Bourcier & Lou Holmes ?

    lou holmes does not sign anymore.

    you will get a letter from one of his children stating that he doesn't sign and not to ask for his autograph again and they will keep your items.

    623 Rg St. Laurent
    St-Etienne-Beauharnois QC J0S 1S0

    I have not tested, but I will try next week.

    Did you receive something back that said this when you sent to Mr. Holmes? If so, when, and what address did you send it to?

    Thank you.

    Update on Old Timers

    Unfortunately, the update is not a good one. I've had Aubuchon, Langelle, Campeau and Benson all out for over a month with nothing back. Pike has been a couple of weeks and I'm still waiting. Could be the lag in the mail between Canada and the States or it could be they've either put the mail aside until it accumulates or they've stopped signing. I just saw a Howie Meeker return posted somewhere. He turns 85 very soon so why wait for him to hit the list. Get him now!

    I bought last years NHL guide and I use it to check off the players that I have/receive autos from.I currently have almost 1200 different players, mostly on index cards,photos or in media guides.About 90% of them played pre-1990.Around 5000 total hockey autos.
    Also use the list to keep track of guys who pass away so I don't send to them.It's an invaluable resource!
