BEHIND THE MASKS - More Masked Men 6

I added a pair of Masked Men 6 cards to my growing mask card collection.  Believe it or not, it came from an insanely exciting Between The Pipes snake draft with Captain Canuck.

Yeah.....not that exciting.

So much so that I'm not even going to scan the rest of the goodies.

But here are the two Masked Men 6 cards.....and my comments.

#MM-43 Tom Barrasso

International masks should not be included in Masked Men sets.

#MM-21 Spencer Martin

Junior masks should not be included in Masked Men sets.

Thank you for your time.

In all seriousness, these two cards do nothing for me.  While the Barrasso mask does have a nice design, the USA treatment just takes away from what I'd like in a 50-card mask set - all NHLers (masks and all).

The Martin mask just should not be included period.  The design is not exciting enough.  I'm more impressed with the artist's detail on the guy's neck hair than I am his two-colored lid.

There are more than enough goalies in the NHL (past and present) to easily fill a 50-card set.  Junior masks and International masks need not be included.


  1. I agree 100%. I was so disappointed they decided to make Carey Price wear his Team Canada's mask. They did that too in 06-07 edition of "The Mask" serie, and it just looks odd in my collection.

    By the way, would you have a copy for trade of 10-11 Inspired Mask IM-12? I'm after this one for long! I remember one of your post in which you were describing it as one of the most desired card of the set... I guess you were right!

    1. Hi David,

      Thanks for the comment. The Inspired Mask cards are tough to track down (and then just as tough to find for a decent price).

      Sadly, I do not have a copy for trade. Rarely will I chase a second copy of a card in my collection.

      That said, I'll keep an eye out.
