Baseball is great too, but for me nothing can compare to Canada's game. The designs. The sweaters. The feel of the game when you are in a rink is amazing.
It's usually not hard for me to find a card that just jumps right out at me. Take this Trevor Kidd card for example:
|1999-00 Upper Deck # 230|
No doubt Trevor carried his custom designed pads from his time in Carolina down to the Sunshine state. Yes, they may be a bit loud, but it's characters like Kidd that just enhance the game even more for me.
I always get a kick out of goalie masks when a netminder moves to a new city. It's a reflection of their personality. I think that the goalie pads could be more of an extension of a goalie's personality if they wanted them to be.
