Sal reviewed Jon Waldman's latest hockey hobby offering "He Shoots, He Saves: The Story Of Hockey's Collectible Treasures". Sounds like it'd be right up my alley.

I'll be honest, I had ulterior motives to wanting this title.
While I wasn't prepared to scan in the entire collection (that's for my own book to come), I did offer up some pretty unique oddball items.
