11-12 ITG Canada Vs The World - Thomas Steen Auto

Here is the last of my Canada Vs The World autos, and it is of former Winnipeg Jet legend Thomas Steen. Thomas is without a doubt my second favourite Jet of all-time behind Dale Hawerchuk. Thomas was Mr Consistent pumping out at least 15 goals every season from his rookie year until his final season(strike shortened) when he only had 5 goals in 31 games. In his 14 seasons, all with the Jets he played in 950 games, scoring 264 goals adding 553 assists for 817 points. True these numbers aren't Hall of Fame worthy, Thomas was much loved by the Jets fans and his number 25 was retired by the organization. In fact, Winnipeg essentially adopted Thomas and even to this day he still lives there where he is currently involved in  civic politics.

What a nice signature! Black sharpie, on sticker, on card is how this came to be. I do like the Team Sweden photo and Thomas donned the uniform 10 times for his home country. Arguably his greatest performance was during the 84 Canada where he scored 7 goals and 1 assist in 8 games for the second place Team Sweden.
