I recently got back a successful autograph request from Hall of Famer, Norm Ullman.
Norm started his career with Detroit in 1955-56, and ended it with the WHA's Edmonton Oilers at the end of the 1976-77 season.
His NHL career with Detroit lasted 12 1/2 seasons before a blockbuster trade sent him to Toronto for the next 8 1/2 years.
In that trade, Detroit sent Ullman, Floyd Smith, Paul Henderson and Doug Barrie in exchange for Frank Mahovlich, Pete Stemkowski, Gary Unger and Carl Brewer.
Norm managed 490 goals and 739 assists in 1410 career NHL games. His last two years of pro hockey were spent in the WHA, recording 130 points in 144 games.
He was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1982
This is actually the second request Mr Ullman has returned. Last year I sent him four cards for him to sign.
I love adding pieces of living history to my collection. Photos like the ones above will always have a place in my home.
