Mark Mancari Autographed Custom Card

I'll take advantage in this break from hockey news and feature another card I purchased off Ebay from an Ottawa-area collector, this time former Ottawa 67s star and current Buffalo Sabres minor league player Mark Mancari:

It's from BG's 2010-11 model of Future Watch / Hot Prospects custom cards. Mancari started slowly in Juniors, but was a point-per-game player in his final two years, prompting the Sabres to select him with the 207th overall pick in 2004. He started off slowly in the AHL as well, but has been a point-per-game player since, earning a few call-ups with the Sabres, and culminating with a 64-point season in 56 games wit the Portland Pirates, earning an AHL First All-Star Team nod in 2010-11.

He then signed a free agent contract with the Vancouver Canucks before returning with Buffalo after just one year.

He is seen here sporting the Sabres' infamous ''buffa-slug'' logo on a white jersey that is otherwise very nice-looking.
