Before O-Pee-Chee became a Canadian institution for hockey cards, there was Parkhurst. The Ontario-based card maker was the first to issue hockey sets after World War II. They began the modern era with their 1951-52 Parkhurst Hockey set.

How to Spot Counterfeit 1951-52 Parkhurst Hockey Cards

The cards resemble strip cards of the prewar era, with crude photographs on heavy paper stock. Measuring just 1 3/4 inches by 2 1/2 inches, they are smaller than what we now know as a standard size. Most of the card shows a player picture that is either posed or uses a game-action shot. The player's name, team and a few stat lines appear in black ink below the picture. A line along the bottom in red ink identifies both the card number and the set. For the only time in the company's history, backs are blank.

1951-52 Parkhurst Hockey has 105 cards, with each of the six teams then in the NHL having its own subset. The only notable exception is card 52, which shows a famous picture of Bill Barilko after scoring the goal that won the previous year's Stanley Cup. The set has been counterfeited, so be careful in buying high-grade examples, especially among the big-name stars.

As the first hockey set printed in more than a decade, virtually every card in it is a "rookie" card. The two keys of the set are the rookie cards of two of hockey's most legendary players, Gordie Howe and Maurice "Rocket" Richard. Terry Sawchuk's first card is also heavily coveted. Other notable rookies include Alex Delvecchio, "Boom Boom" Geoffrion, Doug Harvey, Red Kelly, Ted Lindsay and Gerry McNeil.
