Over the years, I’ve amassed a substantial collection of printed Arctic Cat Marketing, Media and Racing materials that have been sitting dormant in a variety of safekeeping spots. I didn’t really have a plan for them until this spring when I had started sifting through some of the totes and realizing, Arctic Cat fans deserve to see some of these things, and ArcticInsider is the perfect outlet.

Arctic Cat 60th Homecoming attendees got a chance to view a wide range of printed Arctic Cat materials showcasing the company’s history. Some of those show pieces will be able to be viewed here as part of the Thomas Sno Sports collection.

After attending the 60th Arctic Cat Homecoming event in Thief River Falls this summer, I took in all the snowmobiles, parts, garments and accessories and historic marketing materials on display and this confirmed the thoughts I had about my collection – ArcticInsider followers need to see this history.

I love the information in these Arctic Circle communication pieces. “A News Letter for Arctic Enterprises”

ARCTIC CAT LEGACY has been a few months in the making, but the new website plug-ins I’ve invested in will finally help display my personal collection, as well as printed materials and photos I have access to from other collectors.

You can find all these materials at the top of the ArcticInsider homepage under the Arctic Cat Legacy tab. From there, the materials are saved by three main buckets (Marketing, Media and Racing) and classified in folders by corresponding years.

The entire collection won’t be added overnight, but it is my intent to share bits, pieces and portions of it here weekly as a source for your entertainment. The content itself dates back to the 1960s and will be viewable by YEARS in the categories: MARKETING (Brochures, Ads, Posters, Media Kits, Product Photos), MEDIA (PRIDE and RIDE enthusiast publications, Arctic Circle newsletters and a variety of national snowmobile publications) and RACING (Autograph posters, Team Arctic Factory photos).

Arctic Cat autograph stock are some of my favorite materials. Remember when snocross announcers were grasping for a nickname for Tucker? “Corporal” never stuck, but “T-Train” did.

I hope you enjoy seeing/reading some of this content as much as I do. When viewing it, if you have information that is more accurate (Years/Dates) or more to add to the story than I have listed, please share that in the comments sections and Ill update it. – Kale

I see Brad Pake and Kirk Hibbert fairly often, but yet I never remember to have those two sign this 8.5×11 Team Arctic poster.
Ive got nearly every issue of PRIDE magazine, Arctic Cat’s enthusiast publication.

I also have nearly every Snow Week publication. Covers like this one featuring Tucker Hibbert in 2002 are some of my favorites.
