When Ken Reid (Sportsnet Central) is not busy doing TV, or raising his young family, he is collecting hockey cards and moreover, writing about them.

In 2014, he released Hockey Card Stories: True Tales from Your Favourite Players – which was a Canadian best seller, since then he has released two other books One Night Only: Conversations with the NHL’s One-Game Wonders & Dennis Maruk: The Unforgettable Story of Hockey’s Forgotten 60-Goal Man.

Now he’s back with Hockey Card Stories 2, where he reveals more true tales from NHL’rs like Doug Gilmour, Guy Lafleur and “The Great One”, Wayne Gretzky.

SportsLit is pleased that Ken Reid returns to discuss his latest work, listen in to find out more about the sports cards hobby as well as the stories behind the stories about your favourite hockey heroes.
