Recently added these pieces of memorabilia to my collection!

As some of you may know, I'm a huge collector of The Hockey News. I recently purchased another big lot of issues and now own almost 1300 in total, some dating back to 1975. I own almost every issue (6 missing) since the beginning of the 1979-1980 season to present day.

In my latest purchase, these 4 issues were included. Thought some of you may find it interesting.

1976:




1977:




1978:




1979:

Very nice! I think I have some old issues (not as old as those, though) and some draft previews kicking around... if you're interested?!?

Thanks man, but chances are I already own them. There's only 6 issues I need from 1979-1980 to present day, and they're from the early to mid 80's time frame. Do you have issues that date back to then? If so, please send me a PM.

If they're from another time frame, you could always try to sell them on ebay if you're looking to get rid of them.

Too bad, I just got rid of 40 years worth last year. I did find another couple of boxes of them recently though that I missed. If you get me your email somehow I can let you know what I have. Perhaps we can make a deal.

I have a problem, and I'm not afraid to admit it.

I'll send you my email address via PM. Just let me know which issues you have (volume or years or whatever) and if you have a paypal account. If you have any of the issues I need I'm sure we can work something work.

It seems like it would take a long time to collect all of those! Can you read them or do they fall apart? (The older ones) Also, I bet the articles are so interesting, besides the major story going on at any given time, there's always minor stories from week to week, and I think those would be the most interesting to read about.

Isn't there a special type of spray to strengthen the paper so it doesn't tear easily ?

I have a jersey collection, that's about it. Very nice though, very impressive.

The majority of my issues are in very good shape. There is the odd little tear here and there but they're all readable. I store all of them in storage boxes and in a closet that has shelves in it, so they stay in pretty good shape.

But yes, the articles are very interesting. It's fun to go back and read draft previews, future watch issues, olympic/WJC preview issues etc.. I also like to go back to an old issue that reports on/features a specific trade..it's quite interesting. For example, I took out the issue earlier that reported on our acquisition of Vincent Damphousse. I also read an issue yesterday that talked about the trade that sent Doug Wickenheiser to St.Louis for Perry Turnbull.

Such a bust Wickenheiser was..

habsfan18, sick collection, not my thing, but I can certainly appreciate the effort. How much you end up paying to assemble and acquire the collection? must not be cheap...mind you, if you get them all, i'm sure they'd have massive value for a collector if you ever decided to let go of them, if not, you keep them and enjoy.

Thanks man.

I've lost count as to how much I've actually spent on it, but I imagine I've spent quite a bit. I've actually gotten some pretty good deals though through large lots. I've seen specific issues sell for $50 or more when that same issue was included in a deal for 40+ issues that I purchased for $30. It's all about finding the rights deals.
