Pocket schedules are somewhat unique among sports collectibles in that they were and are provided by the teams to fans free of charge.  After all, it’s in the teams best interest to have fans know when games are being played.  Over the years the lowly sked evolved from a single card, printed on either one or both sides, to the tri-folds and even more complicated designs we see today.  There has also been an effort to make them more visually appealing, often including popular players on the front.  Sometimes teams even create different versions of their skeds, each featuring a different player on the front - a move that shows that teams recognize the collectibility of pocked schedules.


Below is a sampling of Seattle hockey skeds from the late 1940s through the inaugural season of the Thunderbirds.  Many thanks to my friend Dave Eskenazi for supplying images of many of the early skeds.
