  • 1974 Howie Meeker "Stop Action Hockey Play" cards

    I have 3 cards. Cards measure 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" with bilingual instruction on the back. Does anybody know more about these cards? How many in the set?

    Ah the old kick save! Don't see that anymore. Maybe Marty Brodeur if I remember correctly.

      Here are the backs of the cards. A few good tips! I especially like the "Russian Exercise".

        I haven't seen these before & don't know anything about them. Because of their instructional nature, might they have some tie-in to Howie Meeker's Hockey School?

          Looks like the same logo on the goalie's sweater.

            He also did work for Hockey Night in Canada in the early 70's as an expert analyst.

              Well yes, but your Meeker card showing the goalie, clearly shows him wearing the Howie Meeker Hockey School sweater. so I think your cards were probably a giveaway at his hockey school or to promote his hockey school.

              Good detective work. Do you know how many cards are in the set? Any of you guys go to the Howie Meeker Hockey School when you were kids?

                No idea how many but there must've been a bunch more.

              Picked up these, from around the mid plus 1970's . Tips from Howie Meeker Hockey School on the back of these lined school booklets. Click image for larger version

                Is the cover artwork by MAC? Same as the Kraft Drawings and HHOF set?

              No, it is Walter Pankiw.
