My Picks #92: Martin Brodeur

Today is hockey day in America, but the only game that really matters to me is the one between the Red Wings and Wild. As I'm writing this post, the Wings are up 1-0 after the first period on a goal by newcomer Damien Brunner. He's been fun to watch, and its about time one of these European sensations actually came over here and did something productive. Anyway, enough about that and onto today's card. 

I picked this one up sometime last year at one of the Gibraltar shows along with a handful of other dime box cards. It comes from 2011-12 Pinnacle, a set that features a lot of interesting pictures, some good and some not so good. This one just happened to stand out among the others. Here's a look at it:

Anything seem out of place there? It actually took me a second to see that Brodeur's mask was about three feet in the air above him. Pretty cool thing to have in a picture on a card, right? I've seen a few cards were goalies are maskless during the play, but nothing like this.

  1. Great looking photo. There are a number of solid pics from the Pinnacle product that year.

    A good set to build for those who like a nice inexpensive set build.
