    What's your favorite non-rookie card?

    Rookie cards get all the glory in this hobby (and rightly so). Because of this status, a lot of great cards go unnoticed and under appreciated. What's your favorite non rookie card?

    Personally I think the 1953 Parkhurst Maurice Richard is a spectacular looking card.

    The 1953 Lumley is beautiful as well. Lots of attractive cards in that set.

    This is my favorite. A miniature work of art and arguably the most attractive card of Art Ross:

    I also like the 53-54 Parkhurst Sawchuk.

    My favorite players, Bernie Parent and Mike Schmidt, typically had lousy cards. The 1976 would be my favorite for Bernie had there not been someone behind him that made him look as though he was putting Oscar Gamble to shame. Also, all of the photos taken at Landover had that weird blue tint to the ice and seemed to need some type of added colorization in that 76 set. Topps did a crappy job with Schmidt. His best card isn't even his specifically. It is the 1989 Phillies' team leader card that shows him hitting, at worst, a fly ball or, and this is what I'm sticking with, a homerun. His 1988 Score is nice though.

    Topps/OPC never did a great card for Gretzky as far as I recall, which is a shame. Jeter is another favorite. Of his base, I would take the 2007 without the distraction of Mantle and Bush. Otherwise, they tended to pick a lot of leaping throws. I think the 2001 Heritage is his best portrait.

    Given his short career, Ken Dryden has relatively few hockey cards. This one is my favourite:

    Some good answers here. I have to agree with the Richard 53 Parkhurst,, Howe 63 Parkhurst and the 50's Parkhurst action shots (especially the 54 pre rookie Plante ones).

    ​Mine is either of these Morenz Anonymous cards because of their scarcity and unknown origin

    That 63-64 Howe Parkie is one of my all time favs. Then again, the 52-53 Meeker Parkie is fun as are the 55-56
    Richard
    Parkie (see the fire in his eyes), the 57-58
    Henri Richard
    Parkie and the 57-58
    Horton
    Parkie. For some reason, Topps (except for 54-55) and OPC never quite captured the passion.
