I should have noted that yesterday was Gerry Cheevers' 77th birthday. Like many New Englanders of a certain age when we think of the Hall of Famer Cheevers the first thing we also think of is his "stitches" goalie mask. I wondered what happened to that mask assuming it was also in the Hockey Hall of Fame but no - Gerry gave it to his grandson.
My next thought was that I'd like to own a replica of the stitches mask. Then I found that Gerry Cheevers sells them but a full size replica cost $500. I then thought - well how about I just wish Gerry a happy birthday and move on.
