1955-56 Parkhurst Hockey Cards
The 1955-56 Parkhurst Hockey Card Set is cnsists of 79 cards. Feeling the pressure of competition, Parkhurst clearly emulated the Topps design of their premier issue of the previous season, probably unaware that they would not issue a hockey. set again for two year.
At a competitive disadvantage, because of Canadian law requiring bilingual descriptions, Parkhurst focused on their core market and only printed cards of "Old-Time Greats" and players from the two Canadian teams - the Montreal Canadians and Toronto Maple Leafs. A parallel set of 1955-56 Parkhurst Hockey Cards was also inserted into Quaker Oats cereal boxes, and can be easily distinguished by the green lettering on the card backs - instead of the red lettering on the standard set.
The key rookie cards in the 1955-56 Parkhurst Hockey Card Set are: #18 Dick Duff and #50 Jacques Plante.
