Yearbooks


I'm not certain if the first couple are yearbooks or programs but I think there might not have been a distinction back then. (Research needed!)




1928-29

Here's an actual quote from this one:

"Madison Square Garden is completely fireproof and does not contain a single piece of lumber!"

On the page directly opposite this introduction to Madison Square Garden is a picture of His Honor The Mayor, Jimmy Walker. Lookin' good Jimmy.



1946-47 1954-55 1976-77

Programs

I actually have many, many more programs, especially from the late 70's, early 80's and of the modern era but I'm only posting the more interesting ones here. For contrast I've posted a recent program.

1986 Playoffs 1994 Stanley Cup Mar-10-03





Miscelaneous



Okay, now for the fun stuff.




Mike Dunham Signed, Game Used Stick





This looks to be a Devil's era stick for Dunham.





Dan Cloutier Signed, Game Used Stick





This is a Ranger's era stick for Cloutier. That is not my apartment. My digital camera i out of comission right now so these shots are from the auction I won.





Dale Purinton Game Worn Skates





These are certified by MeiGray, one of the most trusted memorabilia dealers.

Again, when I get my camera up and running I'll have better pictures. You wouldn't believe how torn up the front of these skates are.





Old Ticket





As can be seen, this is an employee ticket from 1968. This was the last season at the old Garden.



Diamond Matchbooks



1934-35 Cecil Dillon 1935-36 Ott Heller

Pucks



I experimented with scanning my pucks but it failed miserably. You'll have to wait for the camera to get pictures of these. I keep my pucks in Ultra-Pro lucite puck and card holders and try to pick a card that best matches the puck in terms of jersey being worn and color scheme.

  • Matt Barnaby signed Rochester Americans puck
  • Matt Barnaby signed Tampa Bay Lightening puck
  • Dale Purinton signed NYR puck
  • Ed Giacomin signed NYR puck
  • Dan Blackburn signed NYR puck
  • Tom Poti signed 2003 All Star Game Puck
  • Jamie Lundmark signed Hartford Wolfpack puck
  • Garth Murray signed, game used Hartford Wolfpack puck
  • Richard Scott signed blank puck



Cards



I have a fairly massive collection of Rangers cards. For Sanity's sake, I'll only be posting the oldest cards for now but will gradually make may way forward through the 60's at least.

In addition to the cards here, I have hundreds of chase cards, signed cards, memorabilia cards and four 3" D-ring binders full of commons, no two alike.

I've tried to keep the relative scale of these cards approximately accurate but wasn't exact about it.



1933-34 Ice Kings Bill Cook





1933-34 Canadian Gum Bun Cook





1951-52 Parkhurst Don "Bones" Raleigh and Allan Stanley

I currently have 11 out of the 17 Ranger cards from this first Parkhurst set. I'll be posting pictures of the others at a later date.





1952-53 Parkhurst Leo Reise. This card is in beautiful condition.





1954-55 Topps Harry Howell. This was the first set Topps ever put out and I have a few others in my collection but this is my favorite. Also a beautiful card.





1957-58 Topps Bill Gadsby. Skipping ahead in my collection a little just because this is such a beautiful card.
