Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Only three examples grade higher by PSA. Exceptionally crisp, ultra high-grade rookie card of Hall of Famer Gordie Howe from the classic 1951-1952 Parkhurst set. 1951-1952 Parkhurst cards typically suffer from a variety of condition problems, including print defects and a tendency to have soft corners, which make high-grade examples particularly difficult to find. The offered example exhibits outstanding centering, a flawless image, and four strong corners. Perfectly clean on both the front and the blank-back reverse. This is an extraordinary ultra high-grade example of this important rookie card, which is one of the key cards in the extremely condition-sensitive 1951-1952 Parkhurst set and which would be a highlight in even the world's most advanced rookie-card or hockey-card collection. Reserve $10,000. Estimate $25,000+.
