2019-2020 Parkhurst Review


Parkhurst has been out for a while now, but I have only just seen it at my local Wal-Mart. It's a Wal-Mart retail exclusive which makes it a pretty difficult find for me since hockey isn't big where I'm at. Parkhurst is a relatively low-tier brand that nets you quite a bit of cards. The pack opening experience harkens back to the days when there were actually quite a few cards per pack. Thankfully, there are more than just base cards to look forward to when opening up this product.

Product Thoughts
For me, white borders usually signify a lower-end product. Throughout the 90's and early 00's, lower-end cards had these white borders. I'm not a huge fan of them as they give the cards a cheap feel to them. The green Parkhurst color scheme is also a bit awkward on hockey cards. Green isn't a color that is particularly associated with hockey, so having it prominently splashed over the card makes for a curious choice. I just find that the cards have a dated look with design choices that aren't up to par for a modern card. I don't believe Upper Deck is trying to design a retro looking card here either. These cards are just stuck in the middle of nowhere.


Rookies (and All-Stars) have a special designation added to them. I do, however, get the same vibe as the standard base card. These cards look dated and the 'Rookie' addition just heightens the dated look. The font used is questionable to me. However... for some strange reason I like it... it's sort of pure cheese!


Opening up a blaster of Parkhurst will net you quite a bit of inserts and parallels. Thankfully, there aren't any pure base packs to be found. The inserts typically take on a shiny form with parallel cards opting for gold or silver borders. The standard inserts are very common, but some very low numbered cards as well as autographs can be found in the product.


I'm a bit mixed when it comes to this product. I am not a huge fan of the design, but somehow its cheesiness attracts me a little. I suppose it does bring back a small sense of nostalgia for cards made at the turn of the century. If I saw some again on my visit to Wal-Mart I'd probably want to pick up another blaster of it as it is a pretty fun break.

Positives:
  • Lots of cards to find in blasters.
  • Inserts cards can be found in just about every pack.
  • Not an expensive product.
Negatives:
  • Only available at Wal-Mart (and Upper Deck e-Packs).
  • Awkward design elements that seem dated.
  • Hits are very tough pulls.

Overall Rating:

7/10

    1. Hello to everyone out here, I am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened to me … My name is Susan Christian , I live in London, UK. we got married for more than 9 years and have gotten two kids. thing were going well with us and we are always happy. until one day my husband started to behave in a way i could not understand, i was very confused by the way he treat me and the kids. later that month he did not come home again and he called me that he want a divorce, i asked him what have i done wrong to deserve this from him, all he was saying is that he want a divorce that he hate me and do not want to see me again in his life, i was mad and also frustrated do not know what to do, i was sick for more than 2 weeks because of the divorce. i love him so much he was everything to me without him my life is incomplete. i told my sister and she told me to contact a spell caster, i never believe in all this spell casting of a thing. i just want to try if something will come out of it. i contacted Dr Emu for the return of my husband to me, they told me that my husband have been taken by another woman, that she cast a spell on him that is why he hate me and also want us to divorce. then they told me that they have to cast a spell on him that will make him return to me and the kids, they casted the spell and after 24 hours my husband called me and he told me that i should forgive him, he started to apologize on phone and said that he still love me that he did not know what happen to him that he left me. it was the spell that Dr Emu casted on him that make him come back to me today, me and my family are now happy again today. thank you Dr Emu for what you have done for me i would have been nothing today if not for your great spell. i want you my friends who are passing through all this kind of love problem of getting back their husband, wife , or ex boyfriend and girlfriend to contact Dr Emu , if you need his help you can contact him through his private mail: emutemple@gmail.com or you can contact him through his website https://emutemple.wordpress.com/ fb page Https://web.facebook.com/Emu-Temple-104891335203341 and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay.

  3. I've pulled a couple pp signatures and had to buy some cards off ebay... as it seems alot of the blasters are relatively similar. But I enjoyed the product and fought to complete it 100%

  5. I like the simplicity of that Austin Meadows card. It's a great design to collect IP autographs.

  6. I want to thank Dr Emu a very powerful spell caster who help me to bring my husband back to me, few month ago i have a serious problem with my husband, to the extend that he left the house, and he started dating another woman and he stayed with the woman, i tried all i can to bring him back, but all my effort was useless until the day my friend came to my house and i told her every thing that had happened between me and my husband, then she told me of a powerful spell caster who help her when she was in the same problem I then contact Dr Emu and told him every thing and he told me not to worry my self again that my husband will come back to me after he has cast a spell on him, i thought it was a joke, after he had finish casting the spell, he told me that he had just finish casting the spell, to my greatest surprise within 48 hours, my husband really came back begging me to forgive him, if you need his help you can contact him with via email: Emutemple@gmail.com or add him up on his whatsapp +2347012841542 is willing to help any body that need his help.

  7. My name is Sarah I am really pleased with this service. I am one of those people who said, “I’ll never call a psychic or a magician or whatever” to help me with my problems – least of all my love problems, but I reached the point where I knew I needed some guidance, and I’m so glad I found this man called Dr.Ebhoi. I never in a million years would have thought I’d be writing a letter like this, but when I nearly lost Franklin in one of our stupid fights (he broke up with me), I thought I had lost everything I cry all day and think that he will never come back to me again.I read a testimony by a man called Chris Holden about him saying that how Dr.Ebhoi help him to get back is EX wife within 48 hours. I quickly email him and also get back my husband with his love spell and when I was at my most desperate he didn’t take advantage of me. You performed a very good service for a person in true need. I don’t know how you did it or how this magic works, but all I know is... IT WORKS!! Franklin my husband and I are happily back together, and I’ll always be grateful to Dr.Ebhoi email him for any kinds of help is very capable and reliable for help contact him now (ebhoisolution@gmail.com) thank you..

  9. Omg I Finally Got Helped  !! I'm so excited right now, I just have to share my testimony on this Forum.. The feeling of being loved takes away so much burden from our shoulders. I had all this but I made a big mistake when I cheated on my wife with another woman  and my wife left me for over 4 months after she found out..  I was lonely, sad and devastated. Luckily I was directed to a very powerful spell caster Dr Emu who helped me cast a spell of reconciliation on our Relationship and he brought back my wife and now she loves me far more than ever.. I'm so happy with life now. Thank you so much Dr Emu, kindly Contact  Dr Emu Today and get any kind of help you want.. Via Email emutemple@gmail.com or Call/WhatsApp +2347012841542
