Sports Card Trifecta #13: Joe Pavelski

Last night the San Jose Sharks face the St. Louis Blues at home as they hoped to gain momentum going into the final 10 games of the 2010/11 season. They did just that... beating the Blues 5 to 3... with a little help from
Joe Pavelski.

It was originally thought that Pavelski scored a hat trick, but after the game it seems that he didn't actually deflect Patrick Marleau's shot in the first period. So Patty got credit for the first goal of the game instead of Little Joe.

It's a shame... because that would have been his first career hat trick and the third goal would have been the 100th of his career. So to make sure he's honored for his amazing play last night (2 goals-1 assist), I present to you my fourth hockey addition to my Sports Card Trifecta PC:

Rookie Card: 2006/07 SP Authentic #219 (#'d 565/999)

Autographed Card: 2010-11 Score Signatures #397 (#'d to 25)

Memorabilia Card: 2010/11 SPGU "Authentic Fabrics Gold" (#'d 025/100)

Congratulations Little Joe on the amazing game you played last night. Keep up the hard work... because the Sharks are going to need your help if you guys are planning on going deeper this year into the playoffs.

By the way... the autographed puck above was a gift given to me by one of my friends. At the time she had no idea who Joe Pavelski was... but these days she attends more Sharks games than I could ever dream of. I know you're not a reader of my blog... but if by chance you stroll across this one day... Thanks C for the awesome puck. It sitting on my office puck next to my other Sharks memorabilia.

Happy Sunday y'all. Sayonara!


  1. I thought it was pretty stand up that Little Joe went to them and said he didn't get that one goal. That shows some honesty and integrity on his part. Let's hope the Boys in Teal can keep up this run into the playoffs. Go Sharks!

  2. Mariner1 - I didn't even realize that... that definitely makes the story that much better. I might start building a small pc of him too.

    I'm not getting my hope up like last year. I truly thought we'd go to the Finals last year... but Vancouver looks tough.
