I had originally sent Lars Eller the three following cards, on November 19th, 2011:
Today I received this one back, signed in black sharpie:
and the other two unsigned. Whether that means he doesn't like Panini or Score cards or just signs one at a time, I'm unsure.
To many, Eller is the promising center the Montréal Canadiens got from the St. Louis Blues in exchange for playoff hero goalie Jaroslav Halak. To others, he's the 4-goal man from a month and a half ago.
To me, he's the heir to Tomas Plekanec as the all-around quality two-way center who can rack up nearly a point per game regardless of who he is playing with. In a few years, of course.
In the meantime, he can continue on his quest to be the best Danish player in NHL history.
The card he did sign was from Upper Deck's beautiful 2011-12 Victory set, and is card #105 in the collection.
