My wife and I bought one of these a year or two ago (can't remember which year), and we were extraordinarily blessed with a Mario Lemieux autographed puck. It was a pretty cool package, including melted water from the Mellon Arena (rubber bits and all).

I plan on buying another one this year. I got a really large and nice Lemieux book last year which would go great on my coffee table, if I had a coffee Table. It goes to a great cause, and that signed Fleury puck appreciates in value every regular season, though takes a drastic nosedive in value come playoff time...

Got one last year, really not in the cards this year from a working cash standpoint. Curious to follow though what they put in this year. Last year, they mailed updated pages for their autograph book for the players acquired at the deadline.

I bought mine last year online- I would see no reason they wouldn't do that again.

Last year In the CEC, they were selling them inside the main entrance. Go in and turn to the left

I bought ones the last two years and ended up with Tyler Kennedy and Craig Adam signatures. Knowing my luck, I probably will pass this year. They are kind of neat to get once though

How much are these things?

I remember in the old arena, years and years ago, they were selling Pens mystery grab bags for $5 or $10. I doubt this benefited any charity. My buddy bought one and got a hat autographed by Mike Eastwood.

Last year was $250. Got a Tanner Glass signed puck, as #10. Had just bought off the discount rack at PensGear a shirzee for same the week before, since it was marked down post-number change.

i just ordered one, hoping for something Sid/Malkin/Lemieux signed, but happy to receive anything, money is going to a good cause (i mean have you seen the house Lemieux built in Mont Tremblant, Quebec, kidding) and also its also a good tax write off

Just finished buying one. Maybe by some stroke of luck, I will get a Jean Pronovost signed puck. Oh, not on the list.

Couldn't manage the funds this year for one. Maybe next year. I'm interested in what everyone got?

I actually splurged on one of these. Can't wait to open it and see that I got a Deryk Engelland signed puck.
