Description: from Classic Auctions: After six memorable seasons guarding the Toronto Maple Leafs’ net, Felix Potvin moved on to Long Island for parts of ’98-99 and 1999-2000, wearing this Greg Harrison creation during the latter. Mask shows good game use with a scrape in the orange of the chin area and others in the upper region easily matched to our photo of Felix in his Islanders uniform with the NHL 2000 patch. With an image of Felix the Cat on the back plate, along with “The Cat” at the base of the same plate, the protector includes a sweat-stained chin strap and a Velcro-affixed terrycloth sweatband at the forehead. Gold ink handwriting on the interior reads “Greg Harrison for Felix Potvin 99”, with a circled “C” in front of the year. Numerous marks, scrapes and chips in the paint make for a great piece of game worn gear. This is also the first mask used by Potvin in Vancouver, after he was dealt to the Canucks in December of 1999. The popular “Cat” racked up 266 wins in his 12-year NHL career.
