Although I have almost 70 Group 2 (1944-64) Habs Beehives, I only have three Crown Brand photos, but three’s better than none, I think.
The Howie Morenz Crown Brand is a mighty desirable one to have, although Toe Blake and Pit Lepine are no slouches either. I’ve shown Lepine and Blake before, but this is the first time I’ve shown Morenz.
Crown Brand photos were produced by the Canada Starch Co. between 1935 and 1940, and they’re a hot item on the collectables market. I really don’t have a lot of information about them to pass on. Not only are there photos of Canadiens players but also the Montreal Maroons, Chicago Black Hawks, Toronto Maple Leafs, and the 1936 Canadian Olympic team, and I’m assuming the Rangers, Wings, Bruins, and New York Americans are also represented.
I don’t know exactly. Maybe if someone does, they could help me out here..
