Posted: March 15, 2012 in Uncategorized
Update on Vaclav Nedomansky from last year’s birthday post.  Signed business card that he sent along with my signed cards.

The Toronto Star newspaper held a contest of sorts to design a jersey for the Leafs’ Winter Classic game against Detroit on Jan. 1, 2013. Read about and see the submissions below.

Nazem Kadri helped pick the best idea for a Maple Leaf uniform for the 2013 Winter Classic against Detroit, as submitted by readers.
