8x10 of Simmonds?
 
Hey - I was hoping to track down an 8x10 of Wayne Simmonds to bring with me to the Flyers Carnival. All I can find are either pics of him from The Kings, or already autographed photos on Ebay.

There are some ebay vendors that sell official NHL pics - but no one seems to have UNSIGNED Simmonds photos.

Anyone know where I can find one of him in a Flyers uniform - not already signed?

Try searching the photo galleries on the Flyers' site, under schedule. Can one be printed?

Example, here is a photo from the Vancouver game:

You can buy 8x10's to get signed at the Carnival, cant you?

I don't know - I've never been there before...

I was getting all the stuff I wanted together... I have a bryzgalov and a giroux photo to bring with me... As some players don't have presold tickets - I was hoping to trach down Simmonds while I was there. I may not, but an 8x10 for $5 isn't the end of the world.

My printer is shot and only prints in black. So, I can't try printing a pic. And, without a fullsize, huge image file, it won't likely come out clear

Those are a few I found via google search. All should be big enough that you won't lose any definition when you print. If you save them to a thumb drive, you can take them to your local walmart or costco can get them printed on glossey paper in an hour for 2 or 3 dollars.

Best bet is to buy one from Getty Images. Search under "sports" images and use Simmonds Flyers NHL as your search terms.

You should be able to download the photo right from your PC or Mac.

That's interesting... I'll see how my 8x10 looks when I pick it up first.

However - I am looking at that website - it takes forever before you even get the price, because they wanna sell the rights to it. It seems like it is mostly for commercial usage. I've played around with the continuous additions of drop down boxes that wants more and more info on how the image will be used. I do not see a way to just simply buy 1 image for personal use for cheap from that website ($5 or so max)
