Welcome to The Real DFG's Pittsburgh Penguin Autograph Project. My goal is to eventually try and get at least one autograph of every player to lace up the skates in an NHL game for the Pittsburgh Penguins. It could have been for one game or 700 games, I will add them. Occasionally I may post cards of former players in their new team uniforms. While the goal is to get autos in Pens uni's, it isn't always possible. Since the team has been in existence since 1967, the list is pretty large. Last I checked, it was somewhere in the range of 624 different players. Currently, I sit at about 100 autographs (with some duplication). Enjoy the posts.

Words aren't needed here I think. The beauty of this card is lost a little in the scan but you get the idea. Just view it, admire it, bask in its glory. Please wipe your drool though because it could short circuit your keyboard.
I picked this up on Ebay quite a while ago and I'm pretty sure I got a great deal on it. Lemieux's signature has always looked a little sloppy but it is definitely very recognizable. Plus he uses his uniform number which is unmistakable. #66 should be a retired number in the NHL like it's flipped version is. It's a crime that players like TJ Brodie, Yanick Dupre, and Gino Odjick were able to wear these numbers after Mario joined the league and established himself as the greatest player not wearing #99. (Milan Novy wore it before Lemieux)
