These Beehive hockey photos were put out by the St. Lawrence Starch Company Ltd.. The ones that i have shown in the photo below were from the Group series 2. There were three different groups. Group 1 (1934-43) Group 2 (1944-64) Group 3 (1964-67) The company promotion of these photos lasted 33 years total.

1970-71 Esso Power Player Album

 I have two of these. One is a hard cover edition with more info in the front part of the book about the league, pictures etc. As kids we used to go to the Esso gas station and get the stamps for these books. Our parents had to gas up first of course. I used to have a lot of extra stamps back then but i don't know where they all went? This was a 252 stamp set and was just a little change from collecting hockey cards back then.

Rare Hockey Cards In My Collection

 These are two rare hockey cards that i have in my collection. The 1971-72 OPC Guy Lafleur and ken Dryden. I have had them since i was a kid and will probably hang on to them for a while. The Lafleur is in decent shape but the Dryden does have a crease from the top left corner to the bottom right.

                             The 1971-72 OPC are one of my favourite sets. Anybody else?
