1963-64 Parkhurst #47 – Robert Dillabough

Time for a quick blog update before I teach class this morning. Here is another card that brings me one step closer to completing the Set of My Dreams.

I’m not quite sure why Robert (Bob) Dillabough was included in the 1963-64 Parkhurst Hockey set. He only played 1 playoff game for the Red Wings in ’62-63. The year this card came out, Dillabough only played 1 game for the Wings, again in the playoffs. So, he was not a regular on the team. Dillabough would go on to be an original member of the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1967-68, and an original member of the WHA’s Cleveland Crusaders in 1972-73.

One thought on “1963-64 Parkhurst #47 – Robert Dillabough”

  1. He was an Oakland Seal, too!

    I think teams only carried about 16-17 players in '63-64. There are a number of fringe guys who got cards in that set, particularly since Detroit didn't get a coach card.
