Well, I'm adding the 1958-1959 & 1959-1960 seasons to the deal I previously talked about. I've also added a few scattered issues the past few days, so as of now Ill own every issue since the beginning of 58-59, with 14 issues missing from between 63-64 to 69-70. And then every issue since 70-71 to present day.
Collecting these aren't cheap, but I consider them far too valuable to pass up on.

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'll definitely be sure to post about some cool findings. And I checked out those scans you posted a few days back. Pretty neat stuff.

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
Yeah, they're from Lee. It's crazy to think that in a matter of like 5 years, my collection has grown from every issue since 2000, to every issue since 1990, to 1988, to 1980, to 1977...and now practically every issue since 58-59 except for a few scattered ones. It's pretty crazy when I stop and think about it.
Then I think of the financial aspect of it all....
Interested in checking out 50+ years worth of covers from "The Hockey News?" Check out my collection here:
