Bold statement but I stand behind it.
Back in the early ’90s hockey was a hotbed of card innovation. One of my favorite sets came from that era, Team Pinnacle.
They also gave us these.
Simplicity at its Finest. There is no cooler piece of sports equipment than the goalie mask. Taking each players mask and placing it on the black background makes for a striking design, allowing the paint job to pop.
Fun fact. My mother, the art teacher, used these cards when teaching about masks and mask making.
If anyone can think of a better set theme I would love to hear it. I think this is as good as it gets.
