Three years later, the Up North Productions database and new price guide formula were used to re-write both the monthly Canadian Sports Collector price guide and the annual Charlton Hockey Cards price guide (which were one and the same through to the last “Charlton” price guide published in 2006).

Written by Richard Scott and published by Trajan Publishing, two editions of The Wayne Gretzky Checklist & Price Guide were published in 1998 and 1999.

Published by Up North Productions, the original, self-published Up North “magazine” was published from 1991-92 to 1993-94. Early “checklist” editions included The Hockey Rookie Card Checklist and The Maple Leafs Collector’s Checklist (both of which were first published in 1992).
