In The Game recently released the 2012/13 edition of one of my all-time favourite sets - Between The Pipes. I normally bust a box of the product (I'll share that another time) with the goalie mask cards being the highlight (and pursuit).
This year's offering is a little different than past sets and I think the changes are an improvement. I picked up a handful of Masked Men 5 cards at the Toronto Expo and so I'll let the show & tell do all the talking.
The red background has some funky refracting shiny goodness to it and there is a slight embossing to the mask sketch itself. One wouldn't think that it would all come together and work - but it does.....in spades. A really solid looking card (and they scan well too).
There were a couple more mask cards I picked up (with a certain Habs collector in mind).
Bet you owl didn't know ...
