What a memorable signing event last evening with one of the greatest goalies of all time, MARTIN BRODEUR. Funny anecdote, we had brought a GAME WORN, gold medal winning goalie mask for Marty to autograph. Marty looked at the mask and said: "Hey, this is the mask that was stolen from me!" The room went completely quiet. I quietly ask Marty: "Oh sh*t. Do I need to give this mask back to you?" Marty laughs and says "No, it's OK, I made my peace with it. It's cool". The whole room laughs in relief and the session goes on as normal.
I then ask Marty where all his other game worn masks are currently, and the goat answers that he still has all of them! That's what I love I hear. I love it when goalies keep their best game worn artifacts. They are just too precious.
All in all, it was a great evening in New Jersey with one of the greatest goalies of all time. Marty Brodeur is an awesome athlete to work with. And special thanks to Brian from Sports Minded Unlimited for opening his doors to us! NEW JERSEY MEMORABILIA & HOSPITALITY AT IT'S FINEST!
