1951-52 PARKHURST #66 GORDIE HOWE
$5,246 (eBay) Wow...this was a surprisingly strong sale for a dinged up copy of Mr. Hockey’s RC. A testament to the value of thirdparty grading for vintage RCs, perhaps? Or perhaps the eye appeal of this particular copy exceeded the perceived value of a PSA 2.5 Good+ Howe? Either way, it’ll be interesting to follow up and see if this was a one-off, or a harbinger of the demand to come.
