          Same here - never saw that white Bruins jersey Sawchuk before in any way - not even a picture of one on the internet.

          Always fun to pick up a new pile of Bee Hives, isn't it, Larry. The Sawchuk on the right is one of over 700 pictures that are in circulation that were not issued as part of the Bee Hive promotion by St. Lawrence Starch. Many of these fakes were very professionally crafted right down to using a very close approximation of the same font that Bee Hive used (under magnification, the fake font is ever so slightly thicker and the end of some of the vertical lines are more rounded at the tips).

          Larry, I'd like to get your thoughts on the Norm Defelice 'correction' picture. The most confusing image for me remains the Norm Defelice 'correction' which you mentioned that you got in the same set of pictures; I'm leaning to it also being a fake although I have argued both in favour of it and against it. It is noteworthy that it was in the same set of pictures as the Sawchuk. Defelice never appeared on a Bee Hive Player List and only appeared in 10 games in 1956-1957 so it is unlikely that St. Lawrence would have gone to the expense of producing a picture of him even though it obviously would have been technically possible. At the start of that season, Sawchuk was expected to carry the load so it unlikely that they would have produced images of Sawchuk, Simmons, and Defelice. And of course, they spelled Defelice wrong on the 'correction'... one would expect that after misidentifying the image of Simmons that St. Lawrence would have been meticulous in getting the spelling correct had they issued a picture identified as being Defelice. The colour of the backer card is more yellow than buff, like the contrast shown above with the two Sawchuks.

          heres the Simmons, and Defelice-of which are both real- argreed that sawchuk on right is one of the - "missing player" beehives of creation of a well know hobbiest------but texture - of the dark jersey-sawchuk-Simmons, and Defelice are all the same, paper , backings etc all the same as all group 2s - and dot patterns are same through a loop- Defelice /simmons error is a hobby toughie-but it does exist---Jerry Brown -the toughest of all group 1 beehives only played 13 games with Detroit in 1941-42 - so games played didn't seem to matter to St Lawrence in picking players it seems- Aubferg-thanks so much for helping with comment-,i appreciate your insight

        I am a long-time collector of Bee Hive photos. There has been a dispute over the years of the Defelice photo.I tend to agree with Aubrey that the Defelice is a "fake " Bee Hive. The white colour of the background is darker in the corrected version (similar to what is seen in the Sawchuk copy and other fake copies). In addition, there are grey areas in the bottom two corners. I do have two of these Defelice copy photos. A few years ago a dealer had 15 of these copies available for sale, so I'm sure about the rarity of this copy. This is similar to the copy of the Joe Krol Bee Hive. I have copies of the real and fake Krol. It is very difficult to see the differences between them. I don't know if this issue will ever be resolved.

            Why does it say ‘trading card’ and not the year/set name?

            It only says "trading card" because Jim only asked for autograph authentication. Graders only look at the autograph, not the medium it's signed on when that level is asked for. You have to ask for the card to also be authenticated if you don't want the generic "trading card" label.

          Not vintage yet, but picked up a full ticket from the 2018 Winter Classic.

              The Morenz/Siebert photo is cool. Do we know who won the race? They certainly blazed thru their lives tragically fast.

            Here is the Turk Broda "Pep" button and the photo that was used on the button.
            Interesting to see that the button was issued in 1948 but the photo is from March 22, 1941.
            I love this shot!

                ​Another nice photo of Howie in 1934: The Ace Bailey Benefit Game was the first all-star game in National Hockey League (NHL) history. It was played on February 14, 1934, at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto to raise money to support Ace Bailey, whose career was ended by a violent hit by Eddie Shore during a game earlier in the 1933–34 season. Little did Howie realize that there would be a game for his memorial just 3 years later.
