Offered is a fantastic collection of pre-war hockey premiums including an extremely rare 1927-28 Montreal Canadians La Patrie complete (21) cards set. These seldom-seen and very delicate paper-sized 8-1/2 x 11" items, issued with Canada's La Patrie newspaper, feature sepia-tone portraits of some of the top stars of the era. This issue is extremely fragile with single examples rarely found in presentable condition and includes a bevy of Hall of Famers with #1 Mantha (GD), #4 Joliat (VG-EX), #6 Hart (VG-EX), #8 Hainesworth (VG-EX), #10 Leduc (EX), #14 Morenz (VG), #15 C. Hart (PR, tear) and #21 Vezina (FR). The other three premium issues included in this grouping are a scarce 1933-34 Ice King Premium Howie Morenz ( PR-FR, pinholes with moderate wear), a 1938-39 Quaker Oats Cy Wentworth (VG-EX) and a 1938-39 Quaker Oats Walt Buswell (FR-GD, pinhole). This collection of two-dozen oversized premiums is impressive in both quality and quantity with a pair of Morenz plus a Vezina premium.
