We’re focusing on goalies for the upcoming issue of Beckett Hockey and we have a few opportunities for collector participation.

Here’s how you can weigh in and how you might just get to see your name in print:

Make fun of your collection
This John Davidson card (1978-79 Topps #211) is only worth about 60 cents, according to the Beckett OPG. But come on, it’s priceless in so many ways. Visit the Beckett Facebook page and leave a comment with your comedic caption. We’ll run the most LOL-worthy captions in the upcoming issue.

Additionally, feel free to dig through your binders and post your favorite funny goalie cards with commentary on this thread.

Show off your goalie SuperCollector stash
Shoot us an email to or brag on the hockey forums about your massive netminder collection. Be sure to include your name, your age, where you’re from, a few key numbers (rookie cards, inserts, memorabilia, etc.), a brief narrative describing your goalie obsession, and a photo of you standing among your crease-dedicated carboard glory.

Even if you don’t have a Super Collection, you can still get your name in the magazine by posting or sending us a photo of your best goalie pieces.

The great debate: Who is the all-time greatest hobby goalie?
Put career statistics aside for a moment—or not. We’re looking for collectors to consider which goalie has had the greatest impact on the hobby. Comment below with your nominee and don’t be afraid to ruffle a few feathers.

Masked man of the moment: Who is the all-time greatest goalie right now?
Do we default to Jonathan Quick because he’s been a beast during the playoffs? Or is it a veteran who didn’t make a save during this year’s Stanley Cup chase? Tell us who’s king of the crease right now.

Got it? Good.  Let the masked-men mania commence.

    Even though Martin Brodeur beats him by over 100 wins and almost twice as many
    shut outs, when it comes to the HOBBY Patrick Roy still appears to rein.

    I remember when the Hobby started its explosion, with the introduction Upper Deck Hockey.
    Back when the monthly guides came out there was just one goalie that always booked and
    always was in demand, that’s Roy.

    Now if Brodeur had, had his RC only in an elite product, instead of the mass produced cards of
    the day, it would be worth more than the pittance it sells for considering he is likely the
    greatest goalie of all time, and certainly of his generation. But since the RC tends to fuel
    so many other items he just does not get the same hobby love.

    As Hawks fan I would have to say Charlie Gardiner, just for the reason that he was put into a bad situation at 23 years of age with probably the worst couple of years with the Hawks but turned the team around and took them to their first Stanley Cup victory it just too bad that his career was cut shot do to a tonsil infection.
