Cory Stillman Autograph Card

A few years ago, I got a really good deal on a bunch of packs of Pinnacle's 1997-98 Be A Player cards, at least the equivalent of a couple of boxes, and each one contained at least one autographed card. As was my luck, I pulled a Cory Stillman card, showing him wearing the Calgary Flames' red (away) mid-1990s uniform (as opposed to this card, which showed the era's white - home - uniform):
As for most cards in this set, this one (#24 in the collection) shows an on-card signature from a thin black sharpie.

So far, he is still a part of the Carolina Hurricanes' player development staff, though with the staff shake-up this summer (Ron Francis replacing Jim Rutherford as general manager, Bill Peters being named head coach earlier today), that could still change. However, now that Rutherford has landed in Pittsburgh, should Stillman lose his job, I have a feeling he may not be without one for too long.

The 1025-game NHLer, four-time point-per-game pacer and two-time 27-goal man with the Flames could even return to Calgary.
