Is Jaroslav Halak a collector of his own cards?

12 Mar

I always get a kick out of selling a card or two to family members of NHL players…usually it’s a sibling or parent picking up cards, and understandably so. I typically shoot a personal message asking if the person is related, and usually get a response back explaining yes or no 🙂

I have sold cards to the Stuart brothers’ dad, Brandon Dubinsky’s dad, Cheechoo’s family and countless others, and I just find it kind of cool.

Today, however, I had something happen for the first time…this card below of Jaroslav Halak sold…now that would not be anything interesting…however, when I went to print the label, it is being SHIPPED to Jaroslav! 🙂

    cool. I’ve heard rumours about that. When i sent my ttm request to him, I told him to keep whatever card he wanted…(I sent three and two photos)
    He kept one of the cards.

    Apparently true—Dave Stubbs from the Montreal Gazette wrote on Feb 12/10

    And Halak’s hockey-card collection, which he’s now trying to pad out with a few of himself, was built around goalies. He was 10 when he got the only card he truly wanted – Patrick Roy wearing a plain white helmet mask, Roy’s first card after being traded from the Canadiens to Colorado.

    Did you tell Jaroslav that the card would have sold for more if he had played better last year?

    JK LOL
