Description



To locals, they were the R.I. Reds—just like Rhode Island's official state bird. To the rest of the Canadian American Hockey League (CAHL), they were the Providence Reds. Either way, the Reds debuted in 1926 and won their first Fontaine Cup championship in 1929/30, led by forward Johnny Gagnon, goaltender Mickey Murray and defenseman Art Lesieur. Two more CanAm titles came in 1931/32 and 1933/34, before the league folded in 1936, at which point the Reds joined the AHL and boasted the "Kraut Line" of Milt Schmidt, Woody Dumart and Bobby Bauer. This impressive hoard of programs includes 83 examples from the 1930s, 60 from the 1940s and 12 from the 1950s. Cover photos include Toe Blake, Harry Connor and Harold Jackson, while condition averages VG-EX to EX overall with some cover notations of the date and score.
