Andrew Ladd almost single-handedly saved the Blackhawks in Game 4 of the playoff series between the Blackhawks and the Canucks. Martin Havlat tied the game with a few minutes left in the 3rd, and then Ladd scored in the 1st OT to tie the series 2-2.
Two days after his playoff heroics, I got these back from Ladd. He only signed three of the four cards--he did not sign a 2007-08 OPCcard--using a black Sharpie marker. Perhaps three is his limit when signing. No matter, because I'm glad he signed the Parkhurst and Fleer cards.
