Well, an early christmas present to myself (and from my wife as well I suppose ) arrived today. 600+ issues of The Hockey News. Like I posted about previously, I acquired nearly every issue of THN from 58-59 right through 75-76 (only 14 currently missing) to add to my collection that had already consisted of 76-77 to present day.

I was like a kid in a candy store scanning through these. Reading original reports/articles/columns on the formation of the WHA, Bobby Hull signing with Winnipeg, Bobby Orr's rookie season, expansion, Jacques Plante's injury which of course lead to him wearing the mask, Terry Sawchuk breaking the record for all-time shutouts, Rocket Richard retiring, the Summit Series etc.. etc..

Just really cool stuff. Only negative is that it appears I'm running out of room.
