When They Were Young
February 15, 2013 in Boston Bruins, Chicago Blackhawks, Detroit Red Wings, Doug Harvey, Gordie Howe, Montreal Canadiens, New York Rangers, Toronto Maple Leafs Tags: 1954-55 Parkhurst hockey cards, Doug Harvey, Gordie Howe, Jean Beliveau, Maurice Richard, Original Six, Richard Riot
My almost complete (missing four) 1954-55 Parkhurst set. And yes, it’s not a mint set and that’s fine. I like them just the way they are.
Detroit won the Stanley Cup this season, defeating Montreal four games to three in the finals. But the Canadiens were without Maurice Richard, who was on the sidelines serving a suspension which had triggered the infamous Richard Riot on March 17, 1955.
The next season, Montreal would begin their run of five straight Stanley Cups.
