Check this out...my birthday...card/poster.

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately having absolutely no money has hindered my jersey purchases, but I did get this gem from my girlfriend:

HPIM2256.jpg

Considering she knows almost nothing about jerseys except who I like, this is freakin' impressive. Every color is a hand cut layer. She must have gone on eBay or something to find reference pictures, since she put the vector logo on the sleeves haha, but to be honest it blew away. She even made sure to use the old style for LeClair.

The Selanne is the best. She knew I liked him but forgot his name, so literally went through the ABC listings on NHL.com. Mind you Selanne begins with an S...which happens to be a later letter haha.

I mean, I don't know I think it's the coolest thing anyone's done for me, and shows that jerseys have kind of become an identifying trait for me. It's also cool to see my girlfriend doing research on one of my hobbies to make it as right as she can, and also shows she has some interest in it. BTW the thing is a beast...it's a full sheet of poster board.

Oh, and it totally adds up. How cool is that?

OK. Who else used the calculator to make sure the math on the card was correct?

Very nice!! She could have saved herself a lot of time and just drew a Karl Dykhuis jersey! Happy Birthday!!

I checked the poster out a little more....Those tickets are pretty darn good as well....I'll bet the barcodes will even work at Wells Fargo Center! Now we all know where your seats are! You are a lucky guy and like I always say...One need not have a lot of money to be truly wealthy!

That's awesome. Attention to detail with the LeClair was rather impressive. You're a lucky dude.

Does she have a sister? :P

I'm jealous...Seriously...

My girl still still owes me a B-day Marc Staal jersey from last year...I'd much rather this to be honest..

I don't think the LeClair has a nameplate. :lol:

Very cool on her part, greatest gift of all is that she supports you in this crazy and expensive hobby. Congrats on landing a keeper.
