Going to be some incredible reading in there
I assume from Lee who is liquidating?
He was a great help for me in filling the holes for me. I have all issues from 1966-67 to current. That is my interest from expansion on. I assume you can tell why from user name.
BTW Habsfan. Just saw the issue that you were looking for a long time that I sent you a copy of a while back on ebay.
They do take up a heck of a lot of room.

Also if you see any cool articles in there then share a few of them here. I put up a couple from Hockey Pictorial in 1955, 3 issues of that floating online in pdf:
I have 185 issues of Hockey Pictorial/Hockey Pictorial World in my personal collection along with about 600+ other magazines that include Hockey Illustrated, Hockey World, Action Sports Hockey, Hockey Stars etc.... Two 4 drawer cabinet files worth of them and they are about completely full.
Here is part of a nice index someone put together on Hockey Pictorial. It is just the first issue but the index runs through April 1979. Great resource when I an looking for something specific.
