Maple Leafs Magazine Project #4

Time for some more Toronto Maple Leafs magazine covers! Here's a beautiful Dick Duff cover of Hockey Blueline magazine from January 1959. I have this entire season bound together in a nice ring binding. I think it was done for issue to the media, not sure how many survive bound together as the whole season. 
The cover of the bound 1958/59 Blueline magazines
Here's a great December 1967 cover of Hockey World picturing mostly New York Rangers, but amidst all the white shirts is Maple Leaf Pete Stemkowski. He was in the midst of a season in which he he was traded to Detroit among others in the Paul Henderson trade. The previous spring, Stemmer helped lead the Leafs to the Stanley Cup by tallying 12 points in 12 games while playing on a line with Jim Pappin and Bob Pulford. 
Perhaps the greatest part of this magazine is a full page, full colour photo of Bobby Orr, your Rookie of the Year from 1966/67.
