Publisher's Summary

Hockey Card Stories reveals what was really going on in your favorite old hockey cards through the eyes of the players depicted on them. Some of the cards are definitely worth a few bucks, some a few cents - but every story told here is priceless. Sportsnet's Ken Reid presents the cards you loved and the airbrushed monstrosities that made you howl, the cards that have been packed away in boxes forever, and others you can't believe ever existed. Whether it's a case of mistaken identity or simply a great old photo, a fantastic 1970s haircut and 'stache, a wicked awesome goalie mask, or a future Hall of Famer's off-season fashion sense, a wide variety of players - from superstars like Bobby Orr, Denis Potvin, and Phil Esposito to the likes of Bill Armstrong, who played only one game in the NHL - chime in on one of their most famous cards.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Rip’em open.

Great idea interviewing the players.
Lots of fun hearing their stories.
Made me realize why I still buy cards and how much fun it is to talk about the players that turn up.

THE BEST!!

Easily one of the most entertaining audio books I've ever listened to. The author/narrator's Nova Scotian accent is perfect for the fun, whimsical stories that come with the cards in the book. I LOVED the fact that he the focus isn't on the technical aspects of cards so much as the amazing and entertaining stories that the players have told him about stuff that happened around the time the hockey cards were made.

If you like hockey, you'll love this book. I can't recommend it enough!!
