Parkurst Retro Chicago Blackhawks

It's hard to believe but for the quarter century prior to 1967 the NHL consisted of only six teams, the Canadiens, Maple Leafs, Rangers, Bruins, Red Wings and Blackhawks.

In the mid-nineties, Parkhurst commemorated the 1964-65 NHL season by producing a set of "Tall Boy" cards featuring players and coaches from the "Original Six" teams. I'll be sharing my favorites in coming posts.

Here are my favorites from the Chicago Blackhawks:

#43 Billy Reay

#33 Eric Nesterenko

#32 Glenn Hall

#31 Pierre Pilote

#29 Phil Esposito

#28 Denis DeJordy

#26 Stan Mikita

#39 Dennis Hull

#38 Doug Jarrett

#24 Chico Maki

#23 Ken Wharram

#25 Bobby Hull

#42 Bill Hay


  1. everytime I see Eric Nesterenko, I think of the movie Youngblood.

    horrible, horrible movie.

  2. These cards are great to get autographed. Especially the yellow ones. I have a few of them signed. It's a pain in the neck though to find pages to put them in...
