Canadian Football League Collectibles Jim Trautman
Twice a year at the Toronto International Centre - Canada's largest sports collectibles show is held. The show features hundreds of dealers from across Canada and the United States. The main focus has been on hockey collectibles, but in recent years material connected to the Canadian Football League has been building a rapidly increasing committed fan collecting base. And although it does not still get the attention that hockey receives it is a growth area. In the past 55 years collectible material on the Canadian Football League has included; picture cards, team yearbooks, posters, records, jerseys, games, pocket schedules, pennants and other team and sponsor issued material. Of course most fans think of the Grey Cup Program, but there is league material sold at the CFL Hall of Fame in Hamilton, Ontario connected to the yearly induction of players and builders of the game. The souvenir shop inside the hall is filled with material from all the teams. In addition, it is a great place to pickup older material at very reasonable prices. .
The Heyday of Vintage Drinking Glasses Walter T. Lemiski, M.A.
I simply cannot stand drinking out of anything but glass! It drives me up the wall to be served a cold brew at a Blue Jay, Raptor or Maple Leaf game in a plastic cup. It kind of adds insult to the injury of the outrageous prices charged for a pint of suds! A fine glass beer mug or pilsener glass is absolutely the best way to present and enjoy a refreshing pint.
When I began researching glass barware in earnest a number of years back I was absolutely staggered by the sheer volume of products produced and the extraordinary variety of those items. Undoubtedly like many others I began by searching for items that I recalled seeing in my dadís bar some forty years ago

Stamp Boxes Tony Shaman
Postage stamp boxes, long the purview of stamp collectors, postal historians, and museums, are being discovered by an ever-increasing number of antique lovers. Collectors with a penchant for unusual collectible items are finding that the array of stamp boxes manufactured almost since the introduction of postage stamps in 1840, and continued down to our time, can add an element of excitement and spice to their collecting lives.
Pedal Cars Jim Trautman
Living on the 3rd floor of an apartment house as a kid I never had a pedal car. Crazy as it may sound I did have a giant Schwinn Bicycle that my mother dragged up and down the six flights of stairs. It also had about 30 pounds of extra equipment - saddle bags, streamers, lights, horn. In fact the only pedal cars I remember as a kid were the ones that were made from the wheels of baby carriages, but let's not get into how the wheels were obtained. Lastly the other close pedal car was the old wooden crate with the 2 X 4's for a steering wheel and roller skates attached.
