Goalie Mask Food Issues

While sorting through the stack of boxes that I mentioned in my previous post, it came to me, I've always liked food issue hockey stuff a lot more than I thought I did

You don't see the NHL marketed on products as much as you would during the 1980s through the 90s.  Walking through a Kraft aisle at a grocery store was like taking a stroll through the Hockey Hall Of Fame.

These are kind of off the path of the closeups of the mask cards that I showed a few days ago but I thought they were pretty cool and have a very nice closeup of the goaltenders choice of mask and their coice of lid design during the 90s.

I cut these out from packages of Jell-O almost 25 years ago, I can't believe I still have them.  But I can see why.


Kirk McLean


Blaine Lacher



Trevor Kidd


Stephane Fiset

Soo what do you guys think?  What's your favorite mask design from the above 1995-96 food issues?

Personally I'm going to have to pick McLean's mask as my favorite from the group.  Flashiest would have to go to Lacher.  And well, Fiset and Kidd - they're all memorable during their era.

  1. I'm going to have to go with Trevor Kidd. That mask is just too awesome! I remember thinking he was going to be an elite goalie, but obviously, that didn't happen. I have a small collection of his cards from the 90's.

  3. I also have some of these Jell-O cards, they are still attached to each other. I have seen these cards on one other site, and they are like yours, separate. How much are they worth if they have never been separated. I have the Mini ones I was told.
