Default 1963 Parkhurst Hockey (class in session)

99 cards in the set, featuring just three of the NHLs six teams why is that? Teams pictured:
Toronto Maple Leafs with the "Canadien Red Ensign" in the background (according to wiki this was the Canadien flag until 1965)
Montreal Canadiens have multi colored stripes in background.
Detroit Red Wings with the US flag in the background.
Teams not included:
Black Hawks
Card #s 1-60 feature head shots, and each teams cards appear quite similar? Then additional cards of Toronto (61-79) and Montreal (80-99) feature full body shots. Were these cards released in different series? How come no additional Detroit players were issued?

The backs of the cards depict the number, just show basic stats, and are printed in both English and French. Most of the back is devoted to one of three different mail in offers (autographed puck, table hockey game, and Stanley Cup replica trophy). Kids are directed to mail in "ZIP Hockey Gum Wrappers" and a little bit of money to obtain the items.
Why are they called ZIP wrappers?
Can individual cards be found with different mail in offers?
Are any of these mail in offers still out there?

What else do I need to know about this set? Right now I'm 56% complete.

I've never been to an NHL game.
I have attended a few minor league hockey games.
I have watched NHL on TV.
I mostly understand the rules.
I like collecting vintage hockey cards.
I don't know much about the vintage Parkhurst sets.
I really don't know much about the players.
