    lol. Yup. Bill Ranford has a few very dedicated collectors. When two or three of us don't have a card that shows up on eBay.... the prices can get pretty crazy. "Book Value" doesn't seem to matter.

    For newer cards though, stuff out of 25 (for example) or more.... once the first few have been sold, the bidding wars stop getting as bad, and prices come down a lot.

    Hextall is popular due to his, let's call it unique style of play. Granted for the Broad Street Bullies you'd expect nothing less but we're talking a goalie who got into fights, hit people, scored twice (via actual shot into net), and was generally considered a mean SOB to play against. The rules are different now, you can't play how he played (quite literally), but it was entertaining as all hell.

    It's just exactly because that I miss the 80's and 90's of goaltending...
    Goalies in nowadays are so frickin' boring and calm with no temper like robots plus almost all plays in exactly same style (angles, make big ín the net and blocking) plus many are bad with sticks compared with 80's and 90's goalies....

    I'm quite surprised to see that there're so few who collects active goalies, while many retired goalies got a huge following.... maybe becuase they're just more fun to watch than goalies of todays?

    I collect all goalies since I love the position and enjoy tending goal myself. I agree that todays goalie are very similar to one another since they are all playing much the same style of technical goaltending. The 90's had some great goalies that had character, attitude, swagger, and individuality. Belfour beat the snot out of you and defended the crease himself, Roy had a sloppy butterfly that all the current goalies seem to perfect, Hasek was all over the place and is an example of someone that wouldn't get past an NHL tryout based on his style in todays NHL, of course Irbe, the last to wear the old Jofa bucket and repair his pads till they fell apart... The list goes on and on. Brodeur might be the last of the 90's but is still fun to watch... Todays goalies are still fun to watch but Id love to go back in time to see Plante and Sawchuk in their prime.

    A few I could think of are Ed Belfour, Brett Hull, Manon Rheaume, and Luc Robitaille.
    Collecting: auto's and game used patches of Jari Kurri, Grant Fuhr, Paul Coffey and other 80's Oilers. Also looking Ed Belfour autos. For all players, it doesn't matter what team they are shown with.
