Plus: the Current State of Hockey Collecting
Episode #87: March 31, 2021
In the latest Puck Junk Hockey Podcast, Sal Barry and Tim Parish talk about The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers series that debuted on Disney+ last week, as well as their thoughts on The Mighty Ducks films from the 1990s. They also take a long, in-depth look at the current state of the hockey card collecting hobby — including the new breed of hockey card collectors that have sprouted up in the past six months. Plus, the Matthew Tkachuk NFT, referee Tim Peel getting fired and the new NHL Draft Lottery rules. It’s 1 hour and 47 minutes of hockey goodness!

The boom of 1988-91 had a very different feel. Cards were everywhere. Even the grocery store had them in places. They were cheap and plentiful and everyone could participate. This boom is exclusionary. Even if Upper Deck let the presses run on a cheap set and listed it at a dollar a pack, I’m not sure it would reach the masses.
Great point! I miss buying hockey cards at the grocery story 🙁
