Lets Face It

If there is a unique memorabilia card, I want it. The stranger it is, the more I have to have it and it doesn’t matter what sport. Most sports I will try to find one of a player or team that I like but in cases like NASCAR I will take anyone if the relic is cool.

Last year I picked up two face mask cards, both from 2003. The Koren Robinson is from the 2003 Donruss Elite Masks of Steel insert and the Marcus Trufant is from the 2003 Leaf Rookies & Stars Masks release. 

These pieces are from the Rookie Premier, so they aren’t game used, but I don’t have a problem with that. There are several Leaf face mask sets between 2001-2007 and most are rookies with the pieces coming from the premier and those that are game used, like John Elway, are significantly higher in price.


  1. Those are certainly different! It took me a few seconds to spot piece of mask on the first card, it really blends in with overall design of the card.

  2. I know I have at least one facemask relic Browns card. I was pretty excited when I got it. Nice cards.

  3. Sweet cards! Very unique.

    P.S. I was a huge Trufant guy. Go Hawks!
