Description

A follow-up to the 2014 national bestseller Hockey Card Stories, Ken Reid’s new offering presents 59 more stories about your favorite hockey cards from the players themselves. Hockey Card Stories 2 will take you all the way back to the 1960s and right up to the Hockey Card Boom of the 1990s. How did Eric Lindros handle being at the center of the 1990s rookie-card craze? Ever wonder why one tough guy’s Upper Deck card looks more like a High School yearbook picture than a sports card? Of course, once again, there are glorious mullets, errors, and broken noses. There’s even the story of how a rhinoceros and a Hall of Famer ended up on a card together. And as a special bonus, Ken Reid reveals the story behind the chase for his greatest hockey card.

Contributor Notes

Ken Reid is co-host of the prime-time edition of Sportsnet Central. He is also the author of three previous books — the national bestsellers Hockey Card Stories and One Night Only, and Dennis Maruk: The Unforgettable Story of Hockey’s Forgotten 60-Goal Man. A small-town boy from Pictou, Nova Scotia, he currently lives in Toronto with his wife and two sons.

Editorial Review

“Heading toward the holiday season, Hockey Card Stories 2 is a must-have for those that collect now or were card junkies during the boom years. Reid tells some entertaining tales and seems to have put a lot of consideration into the cards that were selected for the book.” — Sports Collector’s Daily

“Filled with blood, mustard, and tips on removing facial stitches, it's a book that highlights everything good about the hobby . . . and once you start reading, you won't be able to put it down.” — Beckett Hockey

“This concept worked so well a couple of years ago, that Sportsnet Central’s Reid opens a second pack of tales gleaned from info on the back of old cards. Among the many in this set, Bob McGill, Willi Plett, Mark Napier, Garry Unger and some one-hit wonders.” — Toronto Sun
