Outstanding high-grade near-complete set of 1951-1952 Parkhurst Hockey, one of hockey collecting's most highly prized card sets, highlighted by numerous Hall of Famers and stars, including the key rookie card of Maurice Richard. Missing only #61 Terry Sawchuck and #66 Gordie Howe for completion (both of which are offered individually in this auction due to their high grades). The fragile stock and natural soft corners of this issue make high-grade sets of this important issue especially difficult to assemble. This important set features players from the four American teams (Detroit, New York, Chicago, and Boston) and two Canadian teams (Montreal and Toronto). Condition of the offered set is 33% Nr/Mt or better, 21% Ex-Mt, 29% Ex, and 17% Vg-Ex. Fifty-two cards are professionally graded and encapsulated by PSA (except for one SGC as noted).
