Robert Baun is the 24th card in my 1963-64 Parkhurst Hockey Set.
There are a few pin holes in the card and a dent on the back at the top. One of the corners is also rounded a bit.
But at $2.50–yes, two dollars and fifty cents–I could not turn down this 47-year old “artifact.”
47 years back, someone felt strongly enough about this card to want to pin it up where it could be seen and enjoyed.
If you think about it, this card was more loved than most modern cards, which are slapped into protective plastic immediately and sequestered in cool, dark, dry places for the rest of their existence.
One thought on “1963-64 Parkhurst #18 – Robert Baun”
I never thought of the cards as being loved instead of damaged. Excellent perspective!
