As I mentioned yesterday, I've been scanning some of the stuff on my desk, doing a little
A couple weeks back I saw a tweet from a well respected hobby board member who mentioned he had a nice lot of cards up for grabs on eBay. Included were a few of the latest Leaf Masked Men set. I hadn't started building that particular set yet so I decided to pick up the auction. After all, it was a very reasonable price and it had a nice bonus card to end things with.
So with that, let's take a look at what might be the least exciting Masked Men product I've seen in a mighty long time. (For those who might not have seen some of my comments on the product from earlier....here you go).
Please, no need for Tretiak, Osgood, Dan Cloudier and Arturs Irbe. Their "masks" just don't cut it in my opinion.
No doubt that if it were in color it would be a terrific card.
A set that can offer a full checklist like this would be a start.
So it's official....I'm building the set. These won't be something I aggressively hunt down - I'll only grab them when the price is right....real right.
But I do like my goalie mask sets so it'll be a fun build nonetheless.
Now, in addition to these four mask cards, there were some other inserts and rookie cards (nothing to really wow anyone with) but there was one card that had me think that this lot was a must-have.
That'll do just fine.
yeah, I saw that... I was going to get it, but then you replied. So I passed.ReplyDelete
Not sure on that "Mask" set... maybe after I see a few in person.
Haven't seen many mask cards locally. Probably because I haven't been to a show or a trade night in quite some time.Delete
Odd how that works.
Love that Vanbiesbrouck! Still one of my favorite masks from the 90's.ReplyDelete
Yeah....it's an "all-timer".Delete
Lol... as a hockey fan who started watching the sport because of the San Jose Sharks... I remember thinking... how come Irbe doesn't have a cool mask like everyone else.ReplyDelete
