Well......after a rough few days I can say that I'm feeling better - much better. While things are still pretty weird and crappy at work, I've started to turn the corner and am focusing more on my break coming up in a week as well as what the 2016 year will bring.
I spent some time scanning stuff tonight (trying to get caught up) and found this pack that has been sitting for a number of weeks now.
It's been almost a year to the day since I posted about a really cool stamp set put out by Canada Post. Really nice looking "cards"....really, they're stamps but I'm never gonna use them. I think they are a nice collectible to have that will one day be pulled out of the closet and blogged about when I'm in my 60's.
This year, Canada Post is back with a new set. This time....goalies.
It's basically the same concept as before. A six card pack, guaranteeing you a "complete set" with the shot of winning an exclusive autographed souvenir sheet in 1:40 packs.
I have no intention in actually using the stamps....but you can (how cool would it be to receive a letter with a massive goalie as a stamp)?
Let's see how they look.
Man is he ever tall (for a goalie playing in the 70's). His waist is almost at the crossbar.
And that mask is just a beaut. Love it.
What a cool mask too. I should dig out my Time magazine that has his masked mug on the cover.
Done. Watch for a future post on that.
I like the orange border around the card as well. Matching is good.
Nothing really wrong with it....I just want a set that sits more in a certain era.
I like this card.
I much prefer my Espo pics without the wire protection on his mask that he implemented in the 80's.
And, these guys wore little protection.
Great shot of Gump in his Habs uniform. Sans mask (he was a stubborn one....only played a few games with it at the end of his career). And he's so tiny (compared to Dryden).
You want to increase goal scoring? Have the goalies wear this getup.
Anyways, I obviously didn't win any sort of autographed versions but I really wasn't expecting it. I like that I've added this to my slowly growing Canada Post stamps collection.
Looking forward to seeing what they come up with next year.
