Parkhurst Project Card 15

The last of the Chicago Black Hawks lot of Parkies is Pete Babando. Unlike the previous three, this one is ungraded but when compared to the others it is roughly on the same grade. The corners are rough, but this one doesn't have any major creases and the back is pretty clean as well. The is one light crease on the upper left of the card.

Pete is best remembered as the player who scored the sudden death overtime goal for the Red Wings in 1950 to win the Stanley Cup. Pete saved his best performances in the regular season for his years in Chicago where his finest season is captured on this card. He would play 6 NHL seasons where he would score 86 goals, 73 assists and 159 points in 351 games.

One neat fact is he and Benny Woit (another member of the '50 Stanley Cup winning Red Wings) would find themselves playing together for the Clinton Comets of the ECHL during the 60's!
