Rob Niedermayer Autograph Card

Yes, another card from Upper Deck's infamous 1995-96 Be A Player set, this time, card #S184, showing Rob Niedermayer wearing Team Canada's colours, probably from his years as a junior, playing for the Medecine Hat Tigers. Jim Carey got the same treatment, of assuming he'd represent his country at the upcoming World Cup.

Rob won a Stanley Cup with his brother Scott, who I featured both in a positive and negative light.

Nowadays, Scott is retired and Rob plays for Scott's old team, the New Jersey Devils, who are going through a revival of sorts with Jacques Lemaire replacing John MacLean as head coach despite having left the team last summer. Rob is married to Jessica Bentall, daughter of Canadian musician Barney Bentall.
