Collecting "Bee Hives" Don Pillar
Billy Harris was a twenty year old rookie centreman with the Toronto Maple Leafs when he saw his photo on a Bee Hive in 1955. He subsequently went on to play ten seasons with the Leafs and was a contributing member of three consecutive Stanley Cup winning teams. He clearly met his challenge of becoming a member of the “Bee Hive” collection. Today for collectors like myself, the challenge of Bee Hives is not to become a member of the set, but rather to complete the Bee Hive collection! At this point, you may be asking yourself, “What on earth are Bee Hives?” The answer is simple. Bee Hives are 4 1/4 by 6 3/4 inch black and white photos of hockey players mounted on 5 3/8 by 8 inch coloured mats (red, blue but most often beige).
Collecting Those Old 78s Lorne Van Sinclair
For 50 years the 10 inch 78 RPM disc was the standard format for records in North America and Europe. In 1901 the Berliner flat disc beat out the Edison cylinder to become as the medium by which popular songs were distributed to the masses. It ruled supreme until 1948 when the 45 and LP were introduced, but it took 10 more years before it was completely phased out. It’s safe to say the 78 disc recorded, and in fact is largely responsible for, one of the most fascinating periods in American popular music.

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.

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 History of Coca-Cola Helen Nash
The product that has given the world its best-known taste and led to a memorabilia craze was born in Atlanta, Georgia, on May 8, 1886. Dr. John Stith Pemberton, a local pharmacist, produced the syrup for Coca Cola® and carried a jug of the new product down the street to Jacobs' Pharmacy, where it was placed on sale for 5 cents a glass at the soda fountain. Carbonated water was added to produce a drink that was at once "Delicious and Refreshing," a theme that continues to echo today wherever Coca Cola is enjoyed...
