Mike calls Saskatoon his home so he brought the Holly Grail for all to see. It was hot July day and the Cup came to us! We lined up for 2 hours to touch the Cup and speak to Mike. He signed 2 pucks, a poster and a 8x10 of the team picture with the Cup.

Eddie is a super nice guy. He will offer to show you his 67 Cup ring everytime you meet him. When he signed this he signed both sides for some reason. Well if you know Eddie, you know why. He will chat about hockey for hours, ask him about the Oldtimers; Hull, Howe, Sawchuk. He has stories! Great guy!
This is neat story. This is a Wendel Clark signed Sport Chek puck. I was booting around Saskatoon about 15 years ago. The radio mentioned that Wendel Clark was sitting out part of the season due to a contract dispute. It turned out he was in town signing autographs at a local Sport Chek. I was 1 block in away from the Sport Chek, pulled into the store and no one was around. Except Wendel Clark. I chatted with him for a bit, got my puck signed and I left the store.
