10-11 Limited Brett Hull Auto /49

In my opinion, Brett Hull is the greatest goal-scorer I have ever seen. I am old enough to have seen Gretzky and many others play, but since my watching days began at the age of 8 in 1987, I have never seen anyone as prolific or skilled at scoring goals than Brett Hull. I think it would have been interesting if the NHL's 3rd all-time leading goal scorer would have been born a few years earlier and had a few more seasons in the 80's instead of a few in the 00's. 

Brett's career includes 2 Cups, 741 goals, 650 assists and 1291 points. He also was a three-time first team all-star, he played in 8 all-star games and is 8th all-time in career goals per game with a 0.58 average which is fittingly enough, 0.01 goals per game higher than 9th place Bobby Hull. His 86 goal season will always stand-out in my mind as one of the most phenomenal performances I have seen. Brett was inducted into the HOF in 2009 which I believe was his first year of eligibility.

10-11 Panini Limited Retired Numbers Brett Hull Autograph /49
This is my only Brett Hull auto. I tried getting him to sign TTM which I heard he did regularly, but to this point I have received nothing back. Still, this is a decent copy which features a clear blue sharpie auto on sticker technology. I have several Bobby Hull autos and someday I will likely feature each in a two-card screw down if I ever manage to get a second Brett Hull auto.


  1. Wow that is a truly awesome card, very nice!

  2. Nice. That's the first of those Limited Retired Numbers that I've really seen.
