Remember collecting hockey cards as a kid? I do. But somewhere between being a kid and now, hockey cards became really exspensive and, collecting them now just seems all the fun has been taken out of it. Along came pocket schedules. They are free, and just like hockey cards, you can collect a full set from each leage; NHL, AHL, ECHL etc. And for those people who are really completists, you can go for all the variations, be it different covers, different advertisers, or misprints. I myself am happy enough to just get one pocket schedule from each team and leave the variations to those who time and patients to hunt them down.
Here are a few of my favorite schedules from the past seasons.
