OTTAWA SENATORS • 40 TEAMS IN 40 WEEKS • WEEK 33 • Every Tuesday throughout the 2011-12 hockey season, we’ll look at significant auction action from another professional hockey team (active or defunct). We will highlight (if available) the top-5 auction results as listed in the 2012 Vintage Collector’s Almanac & Price Guide. We will also feature a few results of modern jerseys for those teams that are still active (especially those sourced by one of our favourite The Want List hockey magazine sponsors, the MeiGray Group).
Be sure to pick up your copy of the 2012 Vintage Collector’s Almanac & Price Guide at magazine stores (in Canada) or popular hockey collector stores. You can also purchase your copy online via theWantList.ca.
