The Controversy of Cards with Protective Film | #58 | 5/20/2020
This week, Sal Barry and Tim Parish discuss the controversial topic of hockey trading cards with protective film on them. From the mid-1990s until the early 2000s, card companies would put protective film on premium cards to protect them from getting scratched.

Sal and Tim also talk about the new hockey card releases this week, the potential return of the NHL -- and Nordiques jerseys. Show Notes, Links and Images: https://puckjunk.com/2020/05/19/podcast-58
