Cardboard Creations: Masked Men Part I

I've done plenty of work the last few weeks on my Masked Men project and have decided to stop the project at 198 different cards.

This is mainly because its becoming more and more difficult to find high quality images for all of the masks I'm looking for. The 198 is simply because it works out evenly to 22 nine-card pages.

Here are the first 99 of them:


There is definiitely no denying that goalie masks are the most artistic pieces of sports equipment. Just look at the range of designs seen in these 99 different masks.

Its so hard to pick a single favorite from this first set so I will come up with my top three. My number three would have to be Brian Elliott's newest mask featuring Casey Jones from TMNT.

My number two choice would have to be Jimmy Howard with me being a Red Wings fan and all. How can you go wrong with the old school D on the chin and the spedometers on the sides?

My number one would have to be Curtis McElhinney's second entry in this list. There is just something awesome about flames and a cowboy hat wearing skull pointing a gun at you.

Part II coming soon...
