Memorabilia of the Month - Autographed Game-Used Stick


I purchased this autographed, game-used stick from Souray's 2008-09 season at the Oilers Annual Locker Room Sale. I added a blue slip-on tape replacement at the butt end (because there wasn't any tape there and it looked unfinished, but this is easily removed) and an engraved plaque with details about the stick. It is one of my favorite pieces.
