This issue of Matrix Biology commemorates the memory of Dick Heinegård and his exceptional contributions to identify extracellular matrix molecules and their interactions that form cartilage matrices. This tribute to him demonstrates the development of his cartilage matrix model and how this model relates to the articles in this Matrix Biology Cartilage issue.
