Brett Hundley

I purchased this 2015 Leaf Draft Armed & Dangerous Brett Hundley # AD-BH1 #'d 11/20 on EBay on January 25th and paid for it that day.  About 2 weeks later I had not received it so emailed seller told me he forgot to ship it and it would go out and he would refund me the price.  I got the refund and didn't receive the card figured that was why he refunded and didn't ship until today 6 weeks later the card shows up.......WOW whatever not sure that's great customer service but basically got it for nothing and needed it for the Ravens autograph collection so I'll take it Brett was active for a few games end of last season and is now in the XFL.

Chris Bourque - Hershey Bears

Jim and I went to the Hershey Bears game on Saturday night with Springfield.  The main reason was the Jersey number retirement of Chris Bourque # 17.  We thought that Chris' Dad would be there former NHLer and Hall of Famer Ray Bourque.  Ray was there I did ask him as he was coming off the ice after the pregame ceremony which was a cool no looked and kept walking.......  Below are a couple pictures from the pregame.  Was nice ceremony and the Bears won the game 6-2, but got nothing signed at this one.
