1951-52 Parkhurst Hockey Cards


Product Details

User Rating:

1951-52 Parkhurst Hockey is largely credited with the start of the modern hockey card market. The vintage "Parkie" set is loaded with key rookies, including Gordie Howe and Maurice Richard.

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.

1951-52 Parkhurst Hockey Set Details

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 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.

The set has been counterfeited, so be careful in buying raw 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 cornerstones of the set include rookie cards of two of hockey's most legendary players, Gordie Howe and Maurice "Rocket" Richard. Terry Sawchuk's first card is also coveted. Other notable rookies include Alex Delvecchio, "Boom Boom" Geoffrion, Doug Harvey, Red Kelly, Ted Lindsay and Gerry McNeil.
