Default Question for vintage Parkhurst experts

Hi -

I have begun collecting Parkhurst hockey from 1952-55. Why do so many of these cards exhibit “foxing” - a brownish discoloration, usually on the borders?

I rarely notice it in Topps baseball from the same era.

Is it because of the paper stock? Canadian winters?

Any explanation would be appreciated!

. . . And then there are tape stains . . .

Thank you!

I assume its the recycled paper stock used in production, with less bleach in the slurry.

As for the tape....I guess its a good way to know you've got an authentic one, lol. Since every thread needs a card, here's one I'd prefer without the added 'gum':

Default Thank you Aaron

Thank you Aaron for your reply. Makes sense.

Do you know for sure that Parkhurst used recycled paper? What is your source for that?

I'm not surprised they'd use recycled stock, although it never occurred to me. The first few Parkhurst issues seem to have been put together with little regard for quality control and a lot of regard for cutting costs. Cheap paper stock, poor registration, and abysmal art work are exhibited all the time.

But I like 'em anyway . . .

Neat card!

Arguably my Parkhurst favorite, the 1952 Terry Sawchuk.

Reasons I praise this card? The fans behind the cage, a very young Terry (pre stitched up face) and the mention on the back of his experience with the "Windsor Spitfires" just to name a few.
