1963-64 Parkhurst #97 – Dale Balon

1963-64 Parkhurst #97 - Dale BalonWow, has it really been eight months since I last purchased a card from the 1963-64 Parkhurst Hockey set? Yes, yes it has. I did not find any Parkies from that year back at the card show in March, and I haven’t done much eBay shopping lately.

Anyway, this “common card” of Dale Balon was $12. A little steep for a common, until I noticed how perfect the corners on this card are. The only real flaw is that bit of discoloration (dirt?) along the bottom left edge. Even the borders and back are a little less aged  than usual.

And thus, I’ve taken another small step towards completing this set.

    1. I still need a Tim Horton card, and maybe a few other big names. I have the three most expensive cards (Howe, Faulkner, Maniago) so it should be pretty much downhill from here.
