The 1952-53 Parkhurst set consists of 105 hockey cards. As far as rookie cards go, Tim Horton leads the pack as the most valuable. The RC’s of Dickie Moore, George Armstrong and Leo Boivin are also quite significant.
Headlining the set are the usual, Maurice Richard, Gordie Howe and Terry Sawchuk with both the Richard and Howe cards valued at over $1,000. The number 3 card of Bernie Geoffrion is considered and uncorrected error (UER) as his last name is misspelled Gioffrion on the front of the card.
The number 105 card of Bob Hassard is valued at more than four times that of a common card on scarcity alone. This is the first of only two cards ever produced with Hassard on the front. He played a total of 126 National Hockey League games between 1949-50 and 1954-55 with the Toronto Maple Leafs and Chicago Black Hawks.
