2019 has been a tremendous year for hockey card collecting in Canada. With Tim Horton's leading the charge, kids are once again trading hockey cards at school, adults who had collected in the past have once again regained their love for the hobby. But which Canadian cities do we feel are the most excited about hockey cards? Not just volume of sales, but more the number of different customers we have, and the conversations we have from these markets. We have come up with three lists of Canadian cities that have the highest level of enthusiasm in 2019. The first list is the major metropolitan cities with a population of 1 million or greater. 2nd is a list of Canada's mid-sized cities; 100,000 to one million. And then Canada's most enthusiastic small cities of under 100,000. Do you agree? There are so many more cities that could have been added, but then the list would have lost it's meaning if we listed too many. It was tough not to include them. Virtually every borough in metropolitan Toronto could make the list, so just putting Toronto as #1 in the major cities would include all of it's neighbouring cities. London, Ontario, and Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia really stand out as way ahead of their peers when it comes to the number of different customers, and their enthusiasm for the hobby.
