Dustin Boyd: 3 Autographed Cards

All 3 cards were sent to the Hamilton Bulldogs on March 30th, 2011 and received June 7th, 2011, all signed in black sharpie.

 I was so happy when the Montréal Canadiens signed Dustin Boyd last summer;  with Maxim Lapierre on a third line, they could have wreaked havoc on opposing teams while getting their share of points. Unfortunately, both are gone now, one in the Stanley Cup finals, the other (Boyd) leaving for the KHL, Kazakhstan to be more precise.

Boyd had been a force in juniors for the Moose Jaw Warriors, with a 61-point (in 66 games) season in 2004-05 and a 90-point outing the following year in just 64 games. Here is their black jersey:
The card is from In The Game's 2005-06 Heroes And Prospects set (card #322).

He had begun his career with the Calgary Flames:
The card on the left - in the white uniform - is from Upper Deck's 2008-09 O-Pee-Chee set (card #15) and is a gold-chrome plated card. I wasn't sure the signature would ''stick'' to it, but ironically, it's the card on the right - the red uniform - from UD's 2009-10 O-Pee-Chee set (card #308) that sees a bit of Boyd's autograph erase away.

He'd also had a quick stint in Nashville, but I don't have a card of him in the Preds' uniform. It's too bad Jacques Martin never gave him a chance - he's pretty rough with all young guys, unfortunately.

I wish him the best in the KHL...
