After two previous requests for Hall of Famer Phil Esposito to complete this mini project in progress, it is now done. My first request was shot down with a simple "No!" The second was much more colorful as he dropped an F-bomb in with the "No!"
This past Saturday, Esposito, after showing a slight hesitation, finally signed the card previously inked by fellow Hall of Famer Bobby Clarke.
Thanks, Phil, and sorry for inconveniencing you at your place of business.
