This is an absolutely gorgeous example of Red Wings Hall-of-Fame great Gordie Howe's 1951 Parkhurst rookie card. This is one of the most important, popular and valuable hockey cards ever produced.
Perhaps the greatest hockey player of all time, Howe's list of career accomplishments is almost endless. He was a 23 time NHL All Star, a six time Hart Trophy winner, a four time Stanley Cup champion, and the only NHL player to play in five different decades (1940's - 1980's). He was simply amazing.
The featured card is a NM/MT beauty. It is exceptionally well centered for the issue. The surface quality is outstanding - no marks, print lines, or imperfections of any kind. All four corners are sharp and squared. And the red color on Howe's uniform is extremely bold and vibrant. A wonderful example of this classic hockey card.
