Jay Bouwmeester Autograph Card

Here's a beauty: card #BW of Upper Deck's Sign Of The Times sub-set from the 2005-06 SP Authentic set. It is a thin blue sharpie hard-signed (directly on the card rather than on an applied sticker) card of then-Florida Panthers defenseman Jay Bouwmeester.

You'll notice from my previous Bouwmeester jersey card posts (here and here) that I am fond of the still-young current Calgary Flames alternate captain. He has uncanny speed for a man his size, can pass and shoot like a powerforward and covers a lot of ice defensively; sure, he could be more robust, à la Chris Pronger, but the Edmonton native might not be the NHL's current Iron Man if he did.

The seven-time Team Canada member has won medals at every level of international play except the Olympics - expect that to change in 2012.
