    1920's-30's Edmonton Eskimos Hockey Photographs & Ephemera Lot of 20+. Prior to the Edmonton Oilers, the predecessor to the NHL team in Edmonton was the Eskimos. Starting as an amateur team, they eventually formed the Western Canada Hockey League and played for the Stanley Cup in 1923. This amazing collection of artifacts originates from the estate of the manager of the team, Ken Mackenzie. Two team composite mounted photos from the 1920-21 season show two of the team's Hall of Fame members: Bullet Joe Simpson and Duke Keats. Photos are mounted to 12x14" and are in Excellent condition. One pictures A. Renaud in Goal while the other features W. Tobin in Goal.

    Three individual photos from the 1920-21 season are included, housed in original folders and measuring 7x9.5." Players shown are Duke Keats, Bullet Joe Simpson and A. Gagne. All three photos are in spectacular NM to Mint condition. Six additional photos of Mackenzie's family are included, of varying sizes. From the 1920's are three sheets of letterhead for Joe Simpson Sporting Goods, featuring photos of the Eskimo Hall of Famer.

    A CCM catalog from 1931 pictures the hockey equipment of the era and although in Fair condition, it includes a team photo of the champion Montreal Canadiens inside. Two copies of the Western Canada Hockey League rules from 1932-33 are in Fair condition with rust damage to the staples. Two copies of 1920's California Hockey League unused player contracts are also included in the lot. Finally, two Railway Express Agency receipts are also thrown in.

    For fans of early hockey, this lot offers an incredible opportunity to pick up several original rare photographs of 1920's Hall of Famers Keats and Simpson in very nice grade.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
