I've got a Patrick Roy card from the 90-91 Pro-Set trading cards set. He signed 1000 in silver marker at the factory and those went out in the packs of cards. When I opened it way back in 91 it was worth $1,000 in the Beckett.

Signed 8x10 of Crosby at the WJC when he was 16.
Signed 8x10 of Kesler (sentimental, not really worth much $$ ... yet ...)
Signed Kesler Jersey (current style home)
all certified.

Roy Rookie card near mint
Signed Beckett "Goal King 802" of the great one. No certification but I met him and watched him sign it so I know it's real. :P
Gretzky rookie card in horrible shape.
Lemieux rookie card in fair shape.

I have had awesome offers for the Gretzky and Lemieux cards but haven't considered selling. They were birthday gifts from my grandfather many, many years ago.

From the 2010 Olympics, I bought a team picture, framed in with an Olympic Gold Medal game ticket stub. The coolest thing about the the whole is that it also has a piece of one of the nets from the game in it. I guess having my own ticket stub to the 2010 Gold Medal Hockey game is pretty cool as well, but this is definitely a new one of our sports memorabilia here at home.

I have a lot of Flames memorabilia, including a jersey signed by Mike Vernon. I did a project for Mike Vernon, and I negotiated a signed jersey into the deal as part of the payment.

Anyway, I do have one Canucks item - I have a 1971 Canucks Puck, that is signed by all the members of the team.

Neat idea for a thread.

Off the top of my brain...
(The Inheretence): These are my Dad's right now... but as he doesn't bother with message boards, I'll brag for him.
Pretty much every "immortal" hall of famer rookie card I can think of.
My grandfather's friend was an employee at Parkhurst (the cards were called "parkies"), that started printing hockey cards in the early 50s. Among that collection are Howe and Richard "rookie" cards, that aren't actually rookie cards, but because of about a 10 year print gap mostly due to WW2, this was the first time they (Richard and Howe) had been featured on hockey cards.

There are lots of 'un-notables' too, but the fact that the entire set is from the 51-52 season, its pretty neat.
My old man has these in a safe, in a bank. They will be mine when he is gone.

He also has a game used signed stick from Bobby Orr, and a signed Orr jersey.

My stash is far less "cool":
I have a number of complete season sets of UpperDeck cards from the early 90s. Lots of neat ones in there: Bure, Lindros WC card, etc.

Notable Random Rookie Cards:
Mario Lemieux, Joe Sakic, Peter Forsberg, Mats Sundin, Mike Bossy, Mike Modano, Steve Y, Sergei Fedorov, Teemu Selanne, Martin Brodeur, Pat Roy, Nik Lidstrom, etc...They range in quality, most are in great shape and in hard plastic. Some have bent corners :(. Never did get my hands on a a gretzky rookie card... maybe eventually but they are too damn expensive.

Canucks specific stuff:

- A Kirk McLean signed white face towel that my grandmother gave me from the cupboard to go to my first ever playoff game (game 6) in 1994 against calgary with.

- By total fluke, 9 holes of golf with Trevor and 2 of his friends at Northridge G&CC in 1999. I was a single and I caught them, they asked me to join them on the back nine. Trevor was in the john so when he strolled up to the 10th tee I nearly shit my pants. Pretty sure his golf pals decided to see if I'd figure it out on my own.
- Cliff Ronning signed card, and puck
- Pavel Bure signed puck from a summer hockey school "surprise" visit.

I don't have much to show for the "modern" Canucks, other than almost running over Daniel Sedin while I was chasing down a frisbee in a park on False Creek one day. He was fascinated by my Aerobee disc and almost launched it into the water trying to throw it back to my friend. They really fly. :)

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

The newspaper clipping is something I've somehow had since day 1. The program I found on to of a pile of magazines at an apartment I once rented in Marpole. Under the Russia program the Life Magazine Issue for Apollo 11.

I had both the Team Canada and Team Russia posters on my wall, (along with Rachel) as a kid.
