NEW ARRIVAL: RAY EMERY SIGNED GOALIE MASK on a VAN VELDEN SHELL
AMAZING: RAY EMERY SIGNED GOALIE MASK on a VAN VELDEN SHELL!!!
In my 15 years of goalie mask collecting & dealings, I have never come across a Ray Emery autograph on a full size goalie mask before. I had given up on the subject matter and just told myself that an autographed Ray Emery piece simply does not exist. This piece here is so exceptionally rare. So incredibly special. Ray Emery was a polarizing goalie. Hate him or love him, everyone had an opinion on him. Boisterous, arrogant, and simply a bad ass. I really enjoyed watching him play during his time with the Ottawa Senators. And then, he seem to be a perfect fit with the Flyers rugged team and image. Nobody wanted to ever f'ck with Emery during a fight.
Tragically, Ray Emery passed away in July 15, 2018 in a tragic boating accident.
This autograph here on a full size mask, is the first time that I have seen Ray Emery autograph in 15 years of goalie masks. It is so precious and so eerie at the same time.
Rest in Power, RAZOR!
