Issued in 1956 by Parkhurst, this rare and unusual 50-card self-developing set features ten star players from five different Canadian Football teams (Edmonton Eskimos, Saskatchewan Roughriders, Calgary Stampeders, Winnipeg Blue Bombers, and Montreal Alouettes). Each card (1-3/4 x 1-7/8 inches) features a black-and-white image of a player with the card number printed in white in the lower left or right corner. The reverse features a bio of the player. This is a carefully assembled set. The quality of the images can vary for this set and the images for most of the cards in the offered set are far above average for what is normally found for this series. Keys: #3 Kwong (Gd), 4 Bright (miscut along the right edge, otherwise Vg-Ex), 5 Parker (Vg-Ex), 7 Getty (Ex), 8 Miles (Gd), 32 Gray (Ex-Mt), 33 Jones (Vg-Ex/Ex), 37 Grant (very poor picture quality, otherwise Ex), 41 Etcheverry (Vg-Ex), 48 Patterson (Vg), and 50 Abruzzi (Vg-Ex). The balance of the cards grade as follows: 70% range from Vg to Vg-Ex, and 30% slightly lesser (mostly Gd). Very attractive complete set of this rarely offered 1950s Canadian football-card issue. Total 50 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000.
