Damn
In the hockey book market? Quite likely. And I've spent about a year and $2000 scouring the hockey book market, both locally, and online, for the best research material. I managed to get my set of "The Trail" volumes for $375 and that's the best you could hope to do. On its own, I have seen Volume 1 at anywhere from $175 to $500 alone.

here's what I found at my favourite book-shopping site:

You can get the whole set for $500, which is a great deal, relatively speaking, and IMO better than paying $400 for just Vol. 1 and better than piecing together a set.

actually, "A Handbook of Bandy, or Hockey on the Ice " from 1896, might hold the actual title of most rare and expensive hockey book. But "The Trail" was described to me as "The Mother of all hockey books" by BM67, and it came as advertised.
