About this Item

SIGNED by Stan Fischler. HARDCOVER 1st printing of the 1st edition; nice copy grades fine in vg dust jacket. Fischler is the most prolific hockey writer in history & has covered the sport for decades. But he was, and is, first and foremost, a fan, as he writes in this 1974 "manifesto" about the sport he loves: "I hate uncontrolled expansion, and I loathe the stupid management and the nearsightedness of.players who have stripped the game of its inherent glamour.I love hockey as much as I revere a work by Rembrandt.I passionately hope that I and many others once loved it, can be salvaged.This book is dedicated to that goal."
