Saw but missed out on: Kjell Samuelsson, Craig Conroy, Scott Lachance, Thomas Gradin, Tony Granato, Ryan Barnes, Lucien Deblois, Warren Young, Doug Wilson, Wade Redden, Shane Churla, and probably others.

Also, one that I originally believed to be impossible: Tim Hunter DID sign my 2002-03 Fleer Throwbacks card, which he has usually had an embargo against signing for the previous 15 years.

That may be the most anyone has ever done at any event!

Ha! I think my friend Russ got even more. Had I been better prepared and not gone into total overkill mode, I easily could have gotten more. A lot of those guys were signing more than two-per (it was all I carried on most of them), there were a lot I carried who were total longshots that I never saw, and there were plenty I saw that I just wasn't quick enough to get.

I did a full recap on my blog as well: http://dfwautographs.blogspot.com/2018/06/nhl-draft-recap-of-three-day-graphing.html
