Sports Byline USA: The NHL ’94 Video Game & Sports Trading Cards

Player not working? Listen to it on SoundCloud.

Last week, I was a guest on the radio talk show Sports Byline USA, hosted by Ron Barr. Those of you who played the video game NHL ’94 or some of the other early games by EA Sports will of course remember Barr, who was literally “in the game,” introducing the teams and players. 

Barr and I talked about NHL ’94 and the game’s enduring popularity 25 years later, the website and the “Pixelated Heroes” documentary. We then talk about the sports memorabilia industry and some of the gimmicks that trading card companies use today to stimulate sales. 

Run time is EXACTLY 15 minutes, so grab a beverage, click play and enjoy! 

Special thanks to Ron Barr and Sports Byline USA for the audio clip.
