Retired player. Inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1988.
Signed insert card.
After a partial season with the Montreal Canadiens, Tony Esposito would play the next 15 years with the Chicago Blackhawks. He was one of the game's top goaltenders in the 1970s.
This card is from the 2011 National. You could get it in a redemption pack from the Upper Deck booth. I was pretty lucky, and pulled signed cards of Sidney Crosby, Bobby Orr and Jeff Skinner.
But I did not get a Tony-O autograph. I finally tracked one down on eBay--numbered 1 out of 10--and won the auction. As you can see, it is nicely signed in blue Sharpie marker. Like many other retired greats, Esposito takes his time when signing an autograph.
