I believe that you are referring to the 1954 set that had the premium backs.
Where the collector could redeem for gifts from the company.
The 1955 set does not have any different backs as far as I know.I did
see a few ads on eBay where some people call them Quaker Oats.But
Quaker Oats only did hockey in the 55-56 year.The wrestling were sold
in packs the same as the regular Parkhurst hockey.Not sure if any of
this helps.

The 1954 premium backs, how scarce are they as compared to the regular cards?

Cards were also distributed as a premium in pack of potato chips.

These cards are stamped on the back: "Valuable card Davy Crockett's Potato Chips Reg'd".

These are very scarce, and when found are usually in poor condition.

These might be the "Quaker Oats" cards you are referring to. Although I don't know if the Quaker Oats company was the manufacturer of Davy Crockett's Potato Chips.

I suspect they are 3-4 times as scarce as the regular backs. (at least that was the case when I sorted a large quantity of the cards a decade ago)

I don't think they were short printed.

Possibly, many were redeemed for prizes. And many may have a tendency to stay in collections, rather than find their way to market.
