TULSA, Oklahoma -

Around this time of year many people reflect on their favorite Christmas gift of all time, and wonder if Santa will bring something to top it this year.

For one Oklahoma man, a moment that started in Kansas City, traveled up to Seattle and ended in Tulsa is going to be tough for old St. Nick to top.

Alex Hughes is a big Seattle Seahawks fan. After a game he and some friends went to in Kansas City, he received a box in the mail from the NFL team.

While at the game, Hughes was wearing his Seahawks gear when, near the end of the night, a woman stopped him and asked if she could borrow his jacket.

Turns out she was the girlfriend of Seahawks running back, Robert Turbin. She wanted to take a picture in the jacket and promised to help Alex get Turbin's autograph after the game – she even gave him her phone number.

Unfortunately for Hughes, not only did Seattle lose the game, but by the end his phone was dead and couldn't text the girl about the autograph.

"Couple days later she messaged me, ‘can I get you address I'll have Robert send you something,'" Hughes said.

Three weeks later a box arrived, and when he and Cooper finally got it open he found a Seahawks helmet with not only Turbin's autograph, but almost 30 others.

"We got Russell Wilson, of course, and Robert Turbin's the one who got it for me, he signed it right here," Hughes said.
