Anyone who has followed this blog for a while knows that Lorne “Gump” Worsley is my favorite player from the Original Six era. I was not alive during that era, and Gump retired before I was even born. But I’ve read his autobiography so many times (I actually own TWO copies of that book) that I feel like I would have been a big fan of his if I was alive and following hockey back then.
That said, I was extremely thrilled to finally get my hands on this 1963-64 Parkhurst card of Worsley. It’s got a bit of dirt on the front–nothing that would offend a rough-and-tumble goalie like the Gumper (may he rest in peace).

Really like this one Sal, don’t think I’d seen it before. Great card.
Cool card. I actually like the back even more. I wonder how many people went after the “Gordon Howe” autographed puck!
I guess Bruins, Hawks and Rangers fans weren’t sending in their 30cents!
i also have this Gump Worsley card, albeit not in as good condition. Bottom left corner is missing for example. Do you have a range in value for this card?
