Canadian Hockey Cards has been on the web since 1996. However our collecting and dealing goes back even farther. 1970 is where it started when Esso released their Power Player's collection. Every kid in school was collecting them. That started the interest in hockey cards in the years that followed. We started doing card shows in the Vancouver area in 1990, and when the internet was accessible in 1994, trading and selling began then. We created our first website in 1996 specializing in Canadian issues. It has evolved over the past 25+ years to what it is today. We work to keep all McDonalds, Tim Hortons, Canadian Tire, and the Upper Deck Young Guns in stock. To see our whole story, visit the "about us" page.
