Goaltending Gallimaufry: Three More

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

Good things come in three's, or at least that's how the saying goes. Today, since I've yet to receive the two packages I'm waiting on from eBay, it's three more additions to my gallimaufry project. These three are again from the stack I came up with when searching through my binders and monster boxes. 

I'm sharing them in three's because I would like to keep the length of these posts manageable. That said, here is the first of the three, a Chris Terreri from 1995-96 Fleer Ultra Extra. In the photo you can see he's still wearing his gear from his time with New Jersey, where he spent only four games in 1995-96 before being traded to the Sharks. As a plus, it seems as though his Osgood-style mask didn't have to change.

Next we've got Olivier Michaud of the Montreal Canadiens featured on the front of a card from the 2001-02 Between The Pipes set. It looks as though he came from Edmonton, except for the sticker job on the mask, but he in fact came straight out of Shawinigan in the QMJHL for just a single game with the Habs back in 2001-02. So, I'm guessing that's where the Oiler-ish equipment comes from, but I could be wrong.

Here's another older one for you, a Ron Tugnutt from 1993-94 Donruss featuring him with the Mighty Ducks. That's significant because he only played there for 28 games, which I guess was not enough time for him to get new gear after being claimed by the  Mighty Ducks in the 1993 Expansion Draft. Although, you would think being picked up during the off-season would allow time for that. I guess not. 

That's all for now. These three bring the gallimaufry total to 31. This project is also proving to be a lot of fun as it's something different and it's neat to see all of them together in the binder. It may not be the prettiest looking set of pages, but it's definitely something to look at. Now, I'm hoping I'll be able to make it to a show here soon to see if I can find anything in the dime and quarter boxes, but we'll see. 

Goaltending Gallimaufry Count: 31


  1. Great stuff. I'm really enjoying this project.

    I'm sure I've got more. I'll take a look over the Christmas break.
