1957-58 Parkhurst

After a one-year layoff, supposedly to assess the hockey card market, the company returned with 1957-58 Parkhurst Hockey. The set was a scaled-back version of their previous effort, and a hint of the rest of the sets that would follow until the brand shut down in 1964.

1957-58 Parkhurst Hockey fronts resemble the design from the 1955-56 Parkhurst Hockey set. A player photo is superimposed against a solid white background. A red box at the bottom contains a card number, the player's name and position. For most cards, a team loo appears in a top corner.

The backs were a little simpler than what Parkhurst's predecessors offered, though. Printed in blue ink, the player's name appears along the top. A couple of lines of vital stats and a biography in English follow, along with a French translation of the text.

The player's stats from the previous season run along the bottom. There are 50 cards in the complete 1957-58 Parkhurst Hockey set. It is broken up evenly between the Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs. Each team is numbered from 1 through 25, with both teams' coaches and five action cards for Montreal to even out the numbers.

The only major rookie in the set is Frank Mahovlich.
