Well, this is by far the widest variety in writing utensils used on a single return. Andre Boudrias was an original North Star, acquired from Montreal during the 1967 expansion draft. He only spent a year and a half in green and gold, but was second on the team in scoring during that inaugural 1967-68 season. After very short stints with the Blackhawks and Blues, he finally became a star for the Vancouver Canucks in the early '70s. As for the cards received here, I'm assuming he had the cards he generously added to my request just sitting around, already signed. I don't know how else to explain the use of different pens on each. Of course, I am very grateful. Thanks, Mr. Boudrias!
