Parkhurst Products of Toronto produces sports and non-sports card series and their products are known as “Parkies” by collectors today. One set entitled “Race Against Time” came out in 1954 and depicted endurance racing of all kinds (boat, horses, runners, rivercraft and spacecraft). Card 37 of the 40 card set featured chuckwagon racing. In it we see two chuckwagons racing past a crowded grandstand. The caption reads, “Chuck Wagon Racing ½ mile. Record: 1m:8.3s (J. Phelan, Alta. Calgary Stampede- 1953”.
The “Parkies” cards were sold with packs including bubble gum. What were your favourite sets? Does anyone out there remember Wacky Packages, Batman cards based on the 1960’s T.V. Series or how about the Partridge Family card set? There were so many to choose from back then.
