Justin Mercier Autograph Card

A sixth-round draft pick of the Colorado Avalanche (168th overall) in 2005, Justin Mercier only once in his life was a point-per-game player: in his third of four seasons in the CCHA/NCAA for the Miami University Redhawks (though he was the first player in school history to amass over 100 points and take part in over 100 wins). Other wise, in the NHL and AHL, his pace is closer to once-per-four games.

He is 1-1-2 in 9 career NHL games with the Avs, but is currently in the ECHL with the Idaho Steelheads, though he did get called up to the AHL's Iowa Wild recently.

I got this card of him sporting the Avs' burgundy (home) uniform in a pack of Panini's 2010-11 Score (card #508, the Hot Rookies sub-set), although I forget if it was actually in the pack or a redemption:

It's signed in blue sharpie on a sticker that was apposed to the card.
