1924 Calgary (Western Canada) Vs. Vancouver (Pacific Coast) Stanley Cup Playoff Series Program. Despite both rounds of the 1924 Stanley Cup playoffs scheduled to be played on the NHL winner's home ice, with Montreal having to face both the PCHA and the WCHL champions, Canadiens' owner Leo Dandurand claimed that Calgary and Vancouver were inferior to his team. Therefore, he wanted the two western teams to face each other, and then have the Canadiens play the winner in the final round. PCHA president Frank Patrick refused to go along with that idea and instead proposed a compromise in which the host team's customary contribution toward the two other clubs' travel expenses would be cut in half.

    To generate additional money, Calgary and Vancouver decided to play a three-game series before going to Montreal, with the loser having to face the Canadiens in the first round of the playoffs. Games were played in Vancouver, Calgary and Winnipeg.

    From the Tigers and Maroons historic Winnipeg meeting from that very series, here we present this amazingly significant game program, which is unquestionably one of the rarest hockey programs in the hobby.

    The first of its kind that Heritage hockey expert Bill Campbell has ever seen, this piece folds to an impressive 3.75x7.75" booklet, while it exhibits VG quality and presents images of hockey legends, such as Red Dutton, Hugh Lehman, Mickey Mackay, Frank Boucher, Lloyd Cook and others. A truly historic program from the defunct Western Canada and Pacific Coast Leagues.
