The 1953-54 Parkhurst set consists of 100 hockey cards. Major rookie cards appear in the set, such as Jean Beliveau, Gump Worsley, Andy Bathgate and Harry Howell. The hockey card of Gordie Howe is the most valuable in the set with Maurice ‘Rocket’ Richard not far behind. Other significant cards include those of Terry Sawchuk, Tim Horton and Bernie Geoffrion.
This would be the last year Parkhurst would have a monopoly in the hockey card world. For 1954-55, Parkhurst would still have a full set featuring players from all six National Hockey League teams. Topps only included players from the four U.S. based teams and not players from the Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens.
