Cleaning more stuff off my desk today. Saw a stack of goalie cards and a binder of older cards on the shelf beside. Decided to pull the scanner out and have some fun.
Here are some of the tenders currently residing in my collection/tradebox (depends on who you ask).
Love the vintage leather.
Great logo. Great jersey. Great leather. Great wall.
And the card is in great condition to boot.
Is he even wearing equipment??
We need more of these portrait shots on our cards eh?
Love, love, love this card.
Whoops....not so fast.
Not the mask I think of when I hear Michel Larocque.
John Davidson. (just don't go looking at any 80's hockey blooper VHS tapes.....clearly not the same cool goalie).
He was the first goalie to introduce the (what is now commonplace) cage-mask combo style of goalie lid.
And look at those pads!! They can't be regulation height?
This is a great photo of him in net. Looks like he knows what he's doing.
Anyone remember the story Don Cherry told about Hardy letting in three softies? "Yahhh...Hat Treeck".
Some great crease action and again.....vintage leather.
I've got to dig up that interview one of these days.
My first ever NHL game I saw in person was the 1985 All-Star Game. Yeah Gretzky, yeah, Kurri, yeah Bossy and Trottier. Yeah rookie Lemieux. But Lindbergh.....he was the star of the show for me.
He was so good.
What's not to love about this card.
He looks so odd.
This is an "action shot" in comparison to others.
And how about that killer red Titan goalie stick!! He was probably the coolest kid on the block.
Masks started getting boring about now.
So there you have it. A little random goalie show & tell for no better reason than I wanted to.
Now.....back to my desk cleaning.
