Been a while since I have made a dent into the Parkhurst Project. But alas I found a few good deals online so the set has grown. Here is today's addition. I bought this card because the starting bid seemed like a good price, but at the same time it was the most I was willing to pay for the card. It just turns out that no one else wanted to make a bid so I won by default (Simpsons fan know it as the two greatest words in the english language!)
Anyway, here is the card.
I don't know why someone would grade a card that would get a grade of 1. It is like putting alloy rims with spinners on an 87 Dodge Caravan if you ask me. However, I was curious what a poor card looks like and as you can see the corners are round, and the card has some creasing. I have a feeling most of my cards in my set so far would be graded poor.
Fred Hucul has one of the longest gaps between NHL games I have ever seen. He played for the Blackhawks in the 50's with his last game being in 1954. He would toil in the minors after that season before emerging back in the NHL thanks to expansion with the St. Louis Blues in 1967 which is 13 years later!! He was a pretty good offensive defensemen in the minors breaking 50 points 8 times in the WHL, but in the NHL had pretty average numbers.
His career totals are 164 games, 11 goals, 30 assists for 41 points.
