Most people sift through the clutter in their home and potentially find a collection of junk that might be worth a few dollars at a garage sale. Longtime hockey photographer Bruce Bennett spotted a box in his basement and discovered artifacts from almost four decades of hockey history.
He didn't hold a garage sale. He shared it with friends and family.
"I never considered myself to be a pack rat. I had a box in the basement that got bigger and bigger through all the years. Each giant envelope had a decade's worth of [press] credentials in it," said the photographer, who managed to keep each of his game passes from his storied career. "The idea that I always had in my head was to put them all in a picture frame. They would go on the wall and you couldn't see them up close and they would start to yellow and get tossed out."
