VOTE: Stanley Cup 40th Anniversary Mask Contest

Hello readers, whether loyal or first timers. Entries have now been posted for the Design a Mask Contest. Entrants were supposed to DESIGN and PAINT a custom mask.
Bernie Parent wants YOU to vote for the custom goalie mask that best commemorates
the 40th Anniversary of the Philadelphia Flyers first Stanley Cup win!
The artist of the winning mask will win a personal meet & greet with Bernie Parent,
along with an autographed jersey and an authentic Sherwood goalie stick,
used by Mr. Parent in preparation for the Winter Classic Alumni game.
 All masks submitted to this contest will be donated to various
charitable events in which Mr. Parent is involved in.

Below is the link to vote for the mask contest.
Link has been posted on, Bernie's personal Twitter account , and Bernie's personal Facebook and Fan Page:
PLEASE NOTE: Votes will only count ONCE PER DAY and are closely monitored. If voting privileges are abused, those votes will be disqualified.
Voting will be closed as of Tuesday, December 31st (NEW YEARS EVE).
Link is live as of 9am today!
Having customs issues with the package coming to me across the border, I got a late start on the design and didn't get quite what I wanted. Hopefully I can win this contest but in the end, it will help a charity for Mr. Parent. Hopefully I can get some of my followers to vote for me at least once per day. I am entry NUMBER 13. There are some excellent entries so I'm going to try to win the popularity vote.
Thanks for reading and voting.

No mistaking what is in this envelope

It says Hockey Cards Inside.

Set 1
Set 2
Set 3
Set 4
Set 5
Set 6

I selected Set 3 with Connor McDavid.

For some reason, blogger won't let me smallen the images for sets 4-6. My daughter gave me the code and has another one on the way. Still trying to figure out which set I'll select. I'm thinking I should go on Facebook and/or Kijiji and asking people to send the codes to me if they aren't going to use them. Or I may go dumpster diving. At least the garbage should be frozen so easier to step through.

My sister picked this up for me from a friend of hers. Actually, both of my sisters kind of keep their eyes open for any sports related items.
Now I'll have to find someone who can read this so I now a little more about it.
The only thing I can understand is this Mark Recchi ad from his Flyers stint.

This looks like a team roster sheet. It has position, number and I'm guessing players name. It's all Greek to me.
I did get an offer on the Panini Beach Boys box I won. The woman was getting it for her boyfriend as they were both Beach Boy fans. Glad to make someone happy.
And my mask has been sent in to the Bernie Parent mask design contest. I'll post more info as the voting process begins. Here's a few pics

Prepped and ready to begin

Coming together

Other side

Will let you know when and where to vote Dec 18th.

And away we go.
