1992-93 Parkhurst

Strangely, Parkhurst was a tough set to finish, simply because I'm north of the border.

The 1992-93 Parkhurst was split in two set of 240 standard-size cards. The first three of this set was easy to find, but the update was painful to obtain. That's because the update was only inserted in the US and never cross the border, only by trade or by purchasing it.

It took me a while to finally be able to find one at a decent price. The update is fairly cheap (25 cents) and I wasn't able to find it cheap. But I managed to buy it in a lot, so I saved on shipping, even though I paid a bit more than the actual price. Whatever, I'm a compulsive buyer, so when it was the only one I need to complete the year, you buy it, whatever the cost. 

The Emerald Ice parallel was a bit tougher to pull together, especially the update. The normal one was hard to track, imagine the Emerald Ice! One day, while browsing the net, I stumble upon one. So I jumped on it!

I remember that this set was my second contact with hockey cards, after Pro Set. When I started collecting Bure, I sorted my entire collection to see if I have some. The results were good : 21 cards, but 6 of the Parkhurst #234! 😂

Anyways, glad that this set is behind me now!
