1,000 Point NHL Player Autographs - #62 Keith Tkachuk

Consistently good, consistently tough.

Keith Tkachuk was built to be a team captain. He was also built to score goals and wreak havoc on the ice for the opposing teams.

Tkachuk scored 538 goals and 1,065 points in his 1,201 NHL game career. In addition, he recorded over 2,200 penalty minutes, a testament to the all-around aspect of his game which also led to numerous appearances for his country (USA) in international tournaments.

Although he never won a Stanley Cup as a player, Tkachuk will be remembered for his physicality and his skill... and as the 62nd highest point scorer in NHL history.

From 1997-98 Pinnacle Be A Player comes this hard-signed card of Keith Tkachuk from the early days of the Phoenix Coyotes. The card was signed after completion of a 52-goal season for Tkachuk. In addition, I have a 2011-12 In The Game Captain-C autograph of Tkachuk but it contains a sticker autograph. Both cards were pack pulled.
