Fine in very good dust jacket. Signed by author. HARDCOVER 1st printing of the 1st edition; nice copy grades fine in vg+ dust jacket. SIGNED by Stan Fischler. 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 hockey...as I and many others once loved it, can be salvaged...This book is dedicated to that goal."
