    1934-43 Howie Morenz Bee Hive Photograph (Group 1). The first of many great Montreal Canadiens superstars to thrill the NHL, Howie Morenz filled arenas and collected nicknames with seemingly the same pace with which he collected goals. Known as "The Babe Ruth of Hockey," "The Mitchell Meteor," "The Stratford Streak" or "The Canadian Comet," Morenz used his lightning speed to get to the top of the game. This example comes from the Group 1 issue of the popular Bee Hives photos released from 1934 to 1943. Measures about 5.5x8" with matting. Some minor wrinkling can be seen in the area of the upper corners and a light crease is also near the bottom of photo, but presentational potential is only marginally affected. Remains one of the rarer and most-desirable Bee Hives in existence. Guide Value or Estimate: $600 - $1,000.
