You can see in my previous post One Player’s Claim To Fame that forwards and defencemen for old Eagle table hockey games from the 1950’s featured the face of Habs journeyman Dick Gamble.
But was there a real player whose face was copied for the little tin goalie?
Here’s the goalie, and thanks to this eBay site for the use of the photo.
I dunno. I went through almost 70 Beehive photos from the 1940’s and 50’s, and thought about it and tried to visualize who it might be, if it’s actually anyone at all.
I have my thoughts on who it is, and I have a picture to compare it to, but I’m not confident at all that it’s the same person.
I’m hoping you might have an idea.
