User Rating:

In its third iteration, 1953-54 Parkhurst Hockey saw an increase in the physical size of the cards but a smaller checklist. NHL great Jean Beliveau is the top rookie card option.

The Parkies pictures show better quality, and more information, including bilingual text, was added to the backs. Because the design is the same as some of the cards from the 1952-53 set, it may be confusing to newer collectors.

1953-54 Parkhurst Hockey Set Details

Slightly larger at 2 1/2" by 3 5/8", 1953-54 Parkhurst Hockey card fronts show a game-action player picture along with a facsimile autograph. The only other feature is the white border that surrounds the card.

Vertical backs offer the standard assortment of the card number and player info at the top. The rest of the card is essentially divided into two parts. The first section leads off with vital stats and then gives a short biography of the player. After that, a black box details a send-in offer for an album that holds the complete set. The second part is a French translation.

There are 100 cards in the 1953-54 Parkhurst Hockey checklist, which is subdivided by team. One card features two players (Maurice Richard and Elmer Lach) that also appear on individual cards. Fleming Mackell (#91) of the Bruins has three different back variations, including a card without any bio text, one with only the French bio, and a corrected version with both the French and English bio shown.

While their similarity in design to some cards for the previous year can be a problem, the larger size and different back design make them easily distinguishable.

Notable rookies in '53-54 Parkhurst include Jean Beliveau, Gump Worsley, Al Arbour, Andy Bathgate and Harry Howell. Parkhurst was clearly excited about Beliveau as he was also shown (by mistake) on Dickie Moore's card (#28).
