    Stop trying Armstrong

    Last month I sent out a long shot attempt...
    I sent a letter to Dale McCourt, George Armstrong's nephew.
    Told him I was a true collector, yada yada and that I would like his uncle to sign a card for me.
    Offered up a good sized amount $$.
    Mr. McCourt actually wrote back to me!
    Small hand written note.
    "Sorry no can do! George is a very private person and I don't think needs the money"
    Your truly,
    Dale McCourt (signature)
    I guess that should end our quest and hopes of getting him for our collections.
    Bought one of his autos couple years back, not a very good one, ball point on a roughed up card. (hope it's real)

    Do you think you will be going to the Vancouver event in November? If so, I really would like to have Dave Babych sign for me. Let me know if you can help me out. Thanks

    King...
    I'm actually thinking of going... Little far in advance right now but should know soon.
    I really need a Brad Palmer, no one else really.
    Now what do you do for your Kings players collection?
    Do they all have to be graphs on Kings items??
    If it's a certain card I'll look for it.
    I got plenty of cards of Babych.
    He actually gave me a game stick several years ago when he was a Canuck.
    Was one of the first players I met when I moved to Vancouver at the start of the 92-93 season.

    I doubt there is a card of Babych when he played in L.A. I could send
    you a card I have plus a Kings logo puck for when he played here. Send me an
    address and a time period to mail it out to you and it will be done.
    My email address is: piafyag@yahoo.com Thanks!!
