Jim Corsi

This card is very cool because of the story behind it. When I asked Mr. Corsi to sign the card he was plesently suprised by the fact he had a card. He had no idea until I asked him to sign the card, a card of him even existed! For those of you who don't know Jim Corsi, it's not that suprising. His NHL carrer was very brief as he also played for other European leagues. He is currently the Goalie Coach of the Buffalo Sabres.
James Corsi (born June 19, 1954 in Montreal, Quebec) is a former ice hockey goaltender.
Corsi played in the World Hockey Association for the Quebec Nordiques and the National Hockey League for the Edmonton Oilers. He has dual Italian and Canadian citizenship. He became the goaltender of the nazionale (Italian national ice hockey team) and spent the majority of his career with Varese. He also played for HC Gherdëina, SG Cortina and HC Bolzano during his time in Italy's Serie A league. Corsi played on the Italian team at the 1982 World Championship that stunned a Team Canada that had Wayne Gretzky on it by tying Canada 3-3 and went on to beat the USA at the same tournament relegating them to the B-Pool for 1983.
He is currently the goaltending coach for the Buffalo Sabres of the National Hockey League.
