Retired player. Currently an assistant coach for the Chicago Wolves (AHL).
Signed card purchased at a card shop on September 21, 2012.
Nolan Baumgartner played 143 games in the NHL, and another 878 games in the AHL. He skated for 6 different NHL teams and 6 teams in the "A."
Baumgartner was the 10th overall pick in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft, which would have made this card desirable at the time it was released. Signature Rookies included Baumgartner in their prospects set because he was a high draft pick and a standout in junior hockey.
This card is actually not the signed insert version; rather, it is the normal unsigned version of the card ("limited" to 45,000 copies) that was autographed in black Sharpie marker after the fact.
