Goaltending Gallimaufry: Three More Thibault's

Gallimaufry [gal-uh-maw-free] A hodgepodge; jumble; confused medley.

It's been a little while now since I've been able to post one of these, so it's nice to get another group of cards for the collection up here. If you remember the first post in this series, there were several Thibault cards from his days with Chicago. These next three are a bit older and feature him with the Quebec Nordiques.

This first one is from the 1993-94 Score set, one I remember seeing a ton of as a kid just getting into collecting. You can easily see the reason this card is here as there is obviously no yellow in the Nordiques color scheme. So what's the yellow from? It's from Thibault's days with the Sherbrooke Faucons of the QMJHL. Click here to see an example of that.

This second one from 1993-94 Topps Premier features the same equipment minus the mask. In this case, Thibault was wearing a plain white mask. Must have been the first piece of equipment he was willing to swap out in order to match his new team's color scheme.

Here's one more with the same exact equipment set as the Topps Premier, this time from the 1993-94 Upper Deck flagship set. The only difference here is seeing Thibault in the home white Nordiques sweater. Doesn't look as good as the blue, does it?


That's it for now. These three happen to come from cards I've had in my collection all along. It just took a little while to come across them. Kind of makes me want to hit up another card show though. There's nothing better than this kind of project for sorting through dime and quarter boxes.
