The Hockey Hall of Fame was founded in 1943 and was given a permanent home in Toronto in 1961. Aside from honoring those whose outstanding achievements have contributed to the development of the game, the Hockey Hall of Fame exists to collect, preserve, research, exhibit and promote all the objects and images that are significant to the story of ice hockey throughout the world.

The objects in the Hockey Hall of Fame tell hockey's story and capture hockey's personality. Icons, like Wayne Gretzky's tucked-in jersey, Jacques Plante's mask or Bobby Hull's curved stick blade, are recognized the world over. The Hockey Hall of Fame allows the past and present to collide in a m#65533;lange of mementos, paraphernalia, photos and videos of hockey's best, brightest and most intriguing moments.

And it is the same in Hockey Hall of Fame Treasures . This lavishly illustrated book is absolutely packed with beautiful color photography, displaying the most interesting, unique, famous and rare artifacts from the Hockey Hall of Fame's collection. Woven through this presentation of artifacts are the words of Adrienne Clarkson, Dave Bidini, James Duthie and Don Gillmor, who share with readers their profoundly personal connection to the game.

Showcasing hundreds of individual items, Hockey Hall of Fame Treasures is the next best thing to being at the Hockey Hall of Fame.
