Apparently, I’m Quote-Worthy

A few months ago, I subscribed to a magazine called The Want List, which focuses exclusively on hockey cards and memorabilia. Recently, they asked some of their readers to rate what they thought the most influential hockey jerseys were.

I just got the new issue yesterday, and on page 37 I am quoted in The Want List’s 25 Most Influential Hockey Jerseys article.

OK, so it’s not like I wrote the Declaration of Independence or anything. But it is still cool to see my name on paper.

Two issues in, and I’m really enjoying my subscription to The Want List. The majority of it is about hockey cards, but some of it also covers hockey jerseys (obviously), hockey toys, hockey pucks, hockey DVDs…the key word here is hockey.

I’m also learning some new stuff from this mag, too. One article in the new ish was about hockey cards made by the Paterson and Paulin chocolate companies during the 1920s. Admittedly, I don’t know too much about cards from that era.

The Want List is chock-full of hockey card articles. If you are interested in learning more or subscribing to the magazine, check out their website.

  1. Hah, never heard of that magazine. Thanks for the tip and congrats on the quote! They clearly know how to pick their experts 😉

  2. Unfortunately the only time I get quoted is by my wife when she is mad at me, which is all the time. So I guess I am quoted all the time.

  3. The one thing they do at that magazine that drives me batty is that they insist on calling the 1961-62 through 1967-68 Topps cards "OPC." OPC produced and distributed them under agreement with Topps.

    The rest of the world calls those sets "Topps" and has done so since the moment they were printed.

  4. The magazine is a pretty good read–Richard Scott used to be with, in its various incarnations, Canadian Sportscard Collector etc–id win a copy of Theoren Fleury's book–Playing with Fire–the collectors almanac was so-so, not as good as previous ones–rookie card checklist excellent–I still call them hockey sweaters though not jerseys (see Roch Carrier) its the Canadian way
