This hockey puck is a small–yet important–piece of memorabilia from my 1991 All-Star Game collection. The front shows the All-Star Game logo.
Unlike previous years’ logos that used a “shield shape,” the 42nd NHL All-Star Game logo is a round shape that fit perfectly on the surface of a hockey puck, leaving very little “black space.”
The flip side shows how old school this puck really is. It’s got the old black-and-orange NHL logo and a facsimile autograph of then league president John A. Ziegler Jr. Remember Ziegler? He’s the guy who lost his job because of the 1992 NHL player strike.
Anyway, I’m not much of a puck collector per se, but I do like commemorative and/or special types of pucks. I think pucks were usually in the $3 to $4 range by then, but this one probably cost $5.
Question: Have you ever bought a commemorative–or otherwise special–hockey puck? What was it for? How much was it?
I guess that’s really 3 questions. Post your thoughts below.
