I have a Crosby sherwood momentum from his first two seasons here. I am not looking to sell it though.

Question: do you ever get frustrated when some random baby pen gets a 1 game callup, or does it just add another treasure to your scavenger hunt?
If you don't mind me asking, how expensive does this hobby get?
It doesn't bother me when guys like Chris Bourque or Greg Crozier play only a game or 2 for us and I'd have another 50 sticks added to the collection if I had the money to spend. I just sit back and wait for the right trade or deal to come my way. I don't have a lot of money to put into this. Most of what I have in the beginning came from attending practices down Southpointe back in the 90's. It was easier to get sticks from players back then. Over the years I have made many contacts that have afforded me the chance to obtain sticks from other teams that I would then use to trade for Pens player sticks.

I have 1 stick. Malkin's that he threw over the boards after a come from behind (3-0 going into third) eventual OT victory that he largely led the effort on. So pumped to catch that

I attended a Pens at Caps game a few years ago. After the game Olaf Kolzig handed his stick to a kid in the crowd as he left the ice. The guy I was with said he does that every game. His kid has 3. Saw the little girl on the Metro after the game with the stick, still wet from the game. You couldnt burn the smile off her face

I have a Jordan Staal that's been cut by somebody on the team. It's an Easton Synergy that looks like the one that was used in this pic: http://www.penguins-hockey-cards.com/pl ... aal_55.jpg
Also have a TK Rbk 8.0.8 that I might be interested in getting rid of. Signed on the blade in gold pen.
