Graded PSA GOOD 2. From the most condition sensitive rookie card of any 1950's set is hockey hall of famer from the 1953 Parkhurst set featuring Jean Beliveau. His career spanned 21 seasons (all with Montreal) and he used his stellar play to help his team win 10 championships. The offered card is low grade but high importance. Though the card is graded GOOD 2 by PSA, the eye appeal is actually really strong. Centering is fairly well balanced, borders are white and the colorful image of the HOFer is really strong. The extremely soft corners (left and right have some paper loss) are the main culprits for the low assessment. Nice addition to any vintage collection.

"Canada 150" Collector Provenance:

Our consignor had some health issues as a young boy and was unable to compete in sports, so the way he connected with his favorite sports of hockey, baseball and basketball was through collecting trading cards of the players.

Fortunately, our young collector’s health improved as he grew up and he was eventually able to get on the ice, diamond and hardwood at a competitive level. In addition, he also continued with his sports card collection.

He took that collection to another level when he embarked on a project to obtain the “rookie cards” of the top 150 NHL all-time points leaders, the top 150 MLB all-time home run hitters and the top 150 NBA all-time scoring leaders. He accomplished his goal (except for a handful of baseball rookies), and this “150” collection has been a decades long pursuit, but also a moving target as players have moved in and out of the lists.

Many of the cards are graded and are highly desired rookie issues in their particular sport. Countless others are of star players and present potential grading opportunities.

Our Canadian collector has enjoyed this pursuit and the colorful, eye pleasing mosaic of cards he had presented in frames for years, but feels the time is right to give them a new home and has entrusted SCP Auctions to present them to the market.
