The greatest name in the history of trading cards is making a comeback after 73 years. Collectors everywhere will applaud the return of the legendary and revered Sportkings brand!
The original Sport Kings Gum series was released by the Goudey Gum Company in 1933 and 1934 and featured 48 incredible athletes from a cross section of sports. In those days, a collector could open up a pack and receive a card depicting hockey icons like Howie Morenz or baseball’s revered Babe Ruth. Highly prized by modern collectors, the original Sport Kings cards have taken on a mystique and ranks among the most popular sets in the history of the hobby.

Only one person in the hobby could orchestrate this return to glory, Dr. Brian H. Price, the owner of In The Game Trading Cards and the mastermind behind the return of the Parkhurst brand to the hockey card market in 1991.

Each base card features original artwork and the roster includes such stars as baseball's Roberto Clemente and Ted Williams, hockey's Patrick Roy and Rocket Richard, football's Troy Aikman and Bart Starr along with many others that truly rank among the Kings of their respective sports including; Mia Hamm-Soccer, Mark Spitz-Swimming, Greg Louganis-Diving, Hulk Hogan-Wrestling, Nigel Mansell-Motor Sports, to name a few.
