While sorting through my stack of boxes that I mentioned in a previous post, it came to me - I've always really liked food issued hockey stuff a lot more than I thought I did.
You don't see the NHL marketed on products as much nowadays as you would growing up during the 1980s through the 90s. Walking down a Kraft aisle at a grocery store was like taking a stroll through the Hockey Hall Of Fame.
I came across these neat Jell-O cards while picking through some stuff. I cut them out from packages of jelly mix nearly 25 years ago, I honestly can't believe I've been able to hold onto them for some long! But I can see why.
Released by Kraft Canada in 1995-96, these cards have been given the set title, 'Crease Keepers'. I thought they were pretty cool and highlight each goaltenders choice of mask during the 90s. Definitely a nice set for any goaltender or mask collector.
Soo what do you guys think? What's your favorite mask design from the above 1995-96 food issues?
Personally I'm going to have to pick McLean's mask as my favorite from the group. Flashiest would have to go to Lacher. And well, Fiset and Kidd - they're all memorable during their era.
