These intriguing vintage printing plates are cardboard-like affairs used to produce newspaper and publication images of the Boston Bruins in the early-1930s. Interesting paper captions on the backs of the majority include "Tiny Thompson is the outstanding goaler of the NHL" and "Dit Clapper is one of the youngest players in hockey." Hall of Fame lineup includes Eddie Shore (2), Harold Oliver (2), Marty Barry (2), Cooney Weiland (2), Tiny Thompson (3), Dit Clapper (2) and Art Ross, as well as Hitchman (2), Owen (2), Gailbraith and 5 unidentified. All are in excellent condition and if you hold the heavy cardstock printing plates up at an angle, you can easily discern the image. Average size is 5" by 7". Most exhibit wear commensurate with their former use, with bends, creases and toning, along with some spotting/staining to a few examples.
