Yeah, it was something ridiculous like 7 or 8 feet long, if I remember correctly.
Durnan's ambidextrous pads and Ludwig's shin pads were the first two to come to mind when I read the thread title.
I always associate Clint Benedict with his ridiculous mask.
Another that people might not be familiar with is Emile Francis, who first wore a first baseman's glove in net, which later morphed into the trapper.
