Jimmy Howard: 2014 Olympic Mask

While I haven't had much to post about here lately card wise, I did want to make sure I got around to sharing Jimmy Howard's latest mask design, this time for the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. This is the first time Howard has represented Team USA in the Olympics and of he has another awesome mask from Bishop Designs for the occasion. 

This mask is definitely different than anything I've shown here of his in the past, and for obvious reasons. I love the overall look of the mask and the level of detail used for the eagle, which is front and center on the top of the mask. What do you guys think? Any other favorite Olympic masks you've seen so far? 

This may be all I get around to posting for the entire month as I've only made one card related purchase and have been too busy to get around to scanning them. I've also been spending most of my free time working on my current model railroading project, which leaves little time for hockey cards. Anyway, just one more thing, GO USA!
