NHL "The Man Behind The Mask" (Jacques Plante) 'Promo' Comic Book

I have for sale the 1997 McDonalds/True North (Canadian Food Issue Publication), NHL Promotional Comic Book "The Man Behind The Mask" featuring Hockey greats Jacques Plante, Andy Bathgate, and Hector "Toe" Blake. Front inside page excerpt: "When Jacques Plante, the goaltender for the Montreal Canadiens, put on a face mask after being injured in a game against the New York Rangers on November 1, 1959, a new era dawned in hockey. All goaltenders knew the danger of facing booming shots without facial protection and when Plante put on his mask after being injured by a shot from Andy Bathgate, the game was forever changed." "The historic hockey game between the Canadiens and the Rangers is vividly depicted in this comic book, which shows a dramatization of the events of that night.You'll see how Jacques Plante was injured and how his coach, Toe Blake, tried to stop him from putting on the mask-until his star goaltender reminded him of a promise he had once made." The NHL "The Man Behind The Mask" (Jacques Plante) 'Promo' Comic Book is in MINT condition. Price $25. PICK UP ONLY
