EHL All-Stars Tour of Russia, Czechoslovakia and Latvia, January 15-29, 1964

From January 15-29, 1964 the Soviet Union hosted a tour of an Eastern Hockey League All-Star Team of United States citizens. The following are the articles (the games are mostly AP blurbs) from the tour, plus video of the Moscow game, and memorabilia from the Ken Murphy collection. There were two games in Prague, of which the EHL won one, but there were no articles on those. This poster is for the game vs Riga Daugava in Latvia.
