COLLECTING THE TOP 100 CANADIENS
$10.99 U.S./$14.59 CDN, HockeyMedia, 136 pgs, 6" x 9", paperback
Collecting the Top 100 Montreal Canadiens serves as a handy field guide for those who want to track down memorabilia from the NHL’s most storied team. There are marquee names, of course, but the book also highlights less obvious players who contributed to the team’s history. The book gives a brief bio of each before listing vital memorabilia info such as the player’s rookie card and/or first Canadiens card, first certified autograph card, first action figure and “hammer down” auction prices for game-used equipment. (Patrick Roy’s pads from his 500th career win sold for $10,357 U.S.) The book is illustrated with pictures of notable cards, figures and 16 annotated pages of game-used sweaters. Leafs Nation, don’t fret: Collect
ing the Top 100 Toronto Maple Leafs is also available.
