2005-06 Be A Player Brooks Orpk Autograph

Here's an autographed card I picked up, not only because he plays for my favorite team, but there aren't really a whole lot of certified Brooks Orpik autographs out there. This one in particular comes from 2005-06 Upper Deck Be A Player.

Orpik was the first round selection (18th overall) of the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft. Most players nowadays have 5 or 6 different autograph or relic cards in each set their rookie year, but that trend didn't pop up until the mid-2000s, well after Orpik had established himself as a Penguins mainstay. Still, there are a few hits of his out there, and if I can get my hands one one, I'm going to jump at that chance.
