I'm about 65 stickers sans-signature away from an entire hard autographed set - there's about 5-6 deceased players who I'm not even sure have ever signed a sticker before their passing, hence why I'm uncertain if this project is even possible to complete.
With a surprise return from Ray Ferraro this past week, I made it one step closer to any such end and completed the beloved Hartford Whalers team set.
I've written to Ray several times over the past few years with no luck. As I've seen other collectors receive returns from Ferraro during this span of time, I even began to think that the sticker was a particular item that he refused to sign! Persistence and patience are keys to this hobby.
