1963-64 Parkhurst #28 – Jean Gauthier

I’ve finally added a Montreal Canadiens player to my upstart 1963-64 Parkhurst set-in-progress. I purchased this card at the same time I purchased the Pete Goegan card. It has a few medium creases on the front, as well as some dirt (above his head, to the right).

But like the Goegan card, this Gauthier card cost me the princely sum of $3.24, including shipping (the dealer only charged me $2.50 to ship the two cards, then mailed them in a plain, stamped envelope).

Maybe when I’m rich, famous, or rich AND famous I’ll be able to afford a near-mint version of this card. Until then, I’ll just have to settle for this war-torn veteran.

And yes, for those keeping score at home, this is the 6th card in the set I started a year ago. Only 93 more cards to go.
