Name your price for any of the Crown Life CFL Roster booklets which I believe were issued from 1955 to 1966. I do have the 1956 but the others have been difficult to come by.
I believe there was also a reprint of the 1961-1966 booklets by Joe Cronin. I do have his 1955-1960 reprint.

I had zero knowledge of these booklets but interestingly enough some information about them came to light last week in the Collecting Canadian Football blog:
