Hockey Card Stories 2: 59 More True Tales from Your Favourite Players

Book Overview
A follow-up to the 2014 national bestseller Hockey Card Stories , Ken Reid's new offering presents 59 more stories about your favorite hockey cards from the players themselves. Hockey Card Stories 2 will take you all the way back to the 1960s and right up to the Hockey Card Boom of the 1990s. How did Eric Lindros handle being at the center of the 1990s rookie-card craze? Ever wonder why one tough guy's Upper Deck card looks more like a High School yearbook picture than a sports card? Of course, once again, there are glorious mullets, errors, and broken noses. There's even the story of how a rhinoceros and a Hall of Famer ended up on a card together. And as a special bonus, Ken Reid reveals the story behind the chase for his greatest hockey card. Featured hockey stars: Wayne Gretzky Guy Lafleur Brett Hull Eric Lindros Doug Gilmour Paul Coffey Mike Modano Dino Ciccarelli Gerry Cheevers Bob McGill Jamie Linden Gilbert Dionne Todd Hartje Brent Gretzky Gino and Paul Cavallini Darren Rumble Cam Russell Tiger Williams Willi Plett Kerry Toporowski Troy Mallette Ken Sabourin Doug Zmolek Hubie McDonough Ric Nattress Tom Fergus Garth Butcher Mark Napier Don Nachbaur Wilf Paiement Tom Tilley Al Iafrate Jamie Matthews Brent Tully Dave Gagnon Dean Kolstad Mark LaForest Garry Unger Ron Plumb Bob MacMillan
