Try this

Granted, this isn't brain surgery, but showing cards depicting a player in a positive moment of his career certainly increases your chances of getting an autograph. I applied this principle Thursday in getting the Islanders' Doug Weight to sign these two cards.

  1. Always a good choice. Just a heads up though, some players won't sign items like that. Ron Francis' 91-92 Upper Deck card shows him lifting the Cup, but he won't sign it. Ditto on the late 80's card of Gretzky holding his brand new LA Kings jersey.

    Most players though love signing cards like that. These are the only two exceptions I can think of.
